Barbarian Women have named Natasha 'Mo' Hunt as one of the first named players in the squad for the clash against Springbok Women’s XV. Rochelle “Rocky” Clark and Katy Daley-Mclean have also been named in the squad.
Hunt brings a huge amount of experience from both international 7s and 15s. With two Rugby World Cups, four Six Nations, two Olympic Games and the World 7s Series under her belt, Hunt will link up with Daley-Mclean in the backs to provide world-class experience to manage the Barbarian game.
Hunt said: “I honestly can’t wait to join up with the Barbarians squad and make some unforgettable memories. It’s a really special group to be part of, rich in history and linking back up with Katy and Rocky within that is just the cherry on top. I can’t wait to get into camp with this group and make some lifelong friends, I’m so honoured to be part of it.”
Barbarian Women Head Coach Jo Yapp commented: “Announcing Rocky, Katy and Mo as part of our Barbarian Women’s squad to take on Springbok Women’s XV lays down a marker for just how good this squad is going to be. I’m looking forward immensely to getting into camp with a very talented group of players and building a team and style that will bring a huge amount of exciting rugby to the fans at Twickenham.”
John Spencer, President of Barbarian F.C. added: “We are thrilled to welcome these illustrious names into the Barbarian Women’s squad for the Killik Cup Double Header. It is going to be an incredible day packed full of electrifying rugby and the first three names announced in the women’s squad signify the standard of players who will be on the pitch in the Barbarian black and white.”
The Killik Cup Double Header 2021 on Saturday 27 November takes place at the home of England Rugby, Twickenham Stadium, featuring the first-ever “home” double header for the Barbarians as they host two international sides for an afternoon of exhilarating world-class rugby.
