Three Gloucester-Hartpury players called up for England duty

Three Gloucester-Hartpury players have been named in England Women's 40-player training squad ahead of the 2021 autumn internationals.

Zoe Aldcroft is called back into the set up with Connie Powell and Emma Sing two of 11 uncapped players named by head coach Simon Middleton. 

Middleton said: “We have selected players on their form in the Allianz Premier 15s as well as the way players fared in our summer pre-season camps.

“Connie Powell is a player we’ve had an eye on for a long time and she’s been very unlucky with injuries in the past. We’ve got nothing but good things to say about her. She adds depth to our specialist hooking position. That’s key.

“Emma Sing’s been knocking on the door for a while. She’s a fast, physical player. Scott (Bemand) has watched her very closely and he’s been very impressed with her performances.

“We’ve got a host of potential debutants in the squad who are there because they impressed in the league or they’ve been on our radar for a while and have upped their game again this season. That’s what we wanted them to do. We wanted players to put their hand up in the league and that’s why they’ve been selected accordingly."

All fixtures will be broadcast live on BBC Two.
