Gloucester-Hartpury Women unchanged for trip to Richmond Women

Gloucester-Hartpury Women unchanged for trip to Richmond Women
It’s the last round of Tyrrells Premier 15s action for two months as the tournament takes a break for the Six Nations. Head Coach Sean Lynn names an unchanged starting line-up with Ceri Large set to make her 50th appearance in the competition.

Looking to bounce back after last week’s defeat at home to Harlequins, the only changes are amongst the replacements where El Perry, Evie Roach, Shya Pinnock and Sophie Tandy all return to the matchday squad.

Lynn is expecting a hard challenge at the Athletic Ground, a venue where Gloucester-Hartpury had to battle to gain a draw last season.

“Richmond will be a tough place to go on Saturday and we have trained hard all week to get a result.

“It’s great to see El Perry and Sophie Tandy back from injury. Also, Evie Roach has worked hard with the A team to gain a place on the bench.”

Ceri Large will be making her 50th appearance in the Tyrrells Premier 15s, having appeared in all of Gloucester-Hartpury’s fixtures in the tournament to date, a mark of her consistently high performances according to Lynn.

“Ceri has been the model of consistency for Gloucester-Hartpury in our three seasons to date. That’s quite significant because she plays at fly-half, one of the most influential positions on the pitch.

“She’s enjoyed a fine playing career, at club and international level, and continues to perform at a very high standard, setting a great example for the younger players at the club.”

Gloucester-Hartpury Women:

  1. Mia Venner; 14. Ellie Underwood, 13. Millie Wood, 12. Rachel Lund, 11. Kelly Smith; 10. Ceri Large, 9. Mo Hunt (capt); 1. Kathryn Buggy, 2. Connie Powell, 3. Katie Dougan; 4. Gurpreet Dhaliwal, 5. Zoe Aldcroft; 6. Sian Williams, 7. Georgia Brock, 8. Ti Tauasosi
