Six Warriors in England Women’s squad

  • Six Warriors have been named in England’s 41-strong National Performance Squad in preparation for the upcoming Autumn international against Wales.
  • Mary Coleman, Anna Davies, Eva Hunter, Kaitlin Hilton, Molly Jones and Victoria Molyneux have all been selected.
  • England Women v Wales Women, Saturday 4 November, AMT Headingley Stadium.

Six Warriors have been named in England Women’s 41-strong National Performance Squad in preparation for the upcoming Autumn international against Wales.

After reaching the Betfred Women’s Super League play-off semi-final and the Challenge Cup semi-final, six Warriors have been rewarded with call ups to England’s National Performance Squad.

Forwards Mary Coleman, Eva Hunter and Victoria Molyneux, as well as Anna Davies, Kaitlin Hilton and Molly Jones, have been named in Head Coach Stuart Barrow’s England Women’s squad to prepare for the Autumn international against Wales at AMT Headingley Rugby Stadium on Saturday 4 November. 

Former Warrior Georgia Wilson, who took up an opportunity in Australia, has also been named in the squad.

Speaking on his squad selection, Barrow said: “The quality of rugby on show during this year’s Betfred Women’s Super League was fantastic, so I thought it was important to give the Knights and our senior internationals an opportunity to train and play together.

“Wales will pose a much different challenge to when we last faced them and I think that the progression of Cardiff Demons over the last couple of seasons proves that, so we are keeping focussed and preparing well for what’s sure to be a fantastic game.”

Two training sessions will take place this weekend involving squads representing Lancashire and Yorkshire, with both teams consisting of senior England players alongside those currently involved in the Knights.

The Lancashire and Yorkshire teams will play an Origin training game at Huddersfield YMCA on Wednesday 25 October before Barrow names his squad for face Wales. 

November’s fixture will be the seventh time England Women have played in front of a home crowd since 2020 – evidence of the continuing development of the women’s international game since the England team played its first game in 2007.

England Women against Wales will be part of an international double header, which will also feature the third and final Test Match of the Men’s historic series against Tonga.
