Connie Powell and Emma Sing named in Red Roses team for Scotland

Gloucester-Hartpury's Connie Powell and Emma Sing have been named in the Red Roses' matchday squad for the Six Nations opener against Scotland. 

If deployed off the bench, Sing will make her international debut with Powell set to add to her one cap having made a try scoring debut against the USA back in November. 

Head coach Simon Middleton is set for the TikTok Women’s Six Nations opener against Scotland on Saturday 26 March, 12pm kick off. 

Middleton said: “We’re really looking forward to this weekend’s opening game. 

“We’ve had a good start to the week training at Bisham Abbey and are excited to be in Edinburgh to fine-tune our preparations.

“We’ve named a strong side and are looking forward to seeing how the group fare.

“We have great strength-in-depth, the whole squad have trained well and it’s important we give players opportunities and at the same time look at a couple of new combinations. 

“Emma Sing is a player we’ve been working with for a while, she has impressed both in our camps and for Gloucester-Hartpury in the Allianz Premier 15s. She deserves this opportunity in what is a competitive group."
