Gloucester-Hartpury name side for Harlequins double-header at the Stoop
Gloucester-Hartpury will face Harlequins Women in round three of the Tyrrell’s Premier 15s at the Stoop on Saturday with both teams unbeaten so far in the competition this season.

The game kicks off at 5:45pm, forming part of a double-header at the Stoop, Harlequins taking on Gloucester Rugby in the Premiership Rugby Cup earlier in the day.

Susie Appleby keeps changes to a minimum from the team that defeated Wasps at the Alpas Arena last weekend. There are only three changes to the starting line-up with Daisy Fahey, Shona Powell-Hughes and Sian Williams getting a call-up.

Millie Wood previews the fixture

Their hosts are currently top of the table but level on 10 points. This will be a big test for Gloucester Hartpury but Susie Appleby has prepared a team that will rise to the challenge.

“It's a big day for the club with Gloucester Rugby men playing Harlequins men first, we are really looking forward to the challenge.

“We are very pleased to have secured two five point wins in our first two games. However, we have created a lot of opportunities which we have failed to convert. Our attention this week has very much been about attention to detail and patience through our phases.

“Harlequins are an excellent team and we won't necessarily get as many chances, so we have to be accurate when we do. Daisy, Sian and Shona have all played well coming off the bench and deserve their starts.

“Charlie-Mai Manns and Rachel Lund have been excellent in the A team, I'm looking forward to seeing their impact tomorrow.”
