Alicia Maude and Kelly Smith have been named in the GB Sevens squad for the Dubai 7s (26/27 November). Women’s head coach Scott Forrest has named a 13-player group with Smith getting her maiden GB Sevens call up.
"Kelly Smith has come in over the last few weeks and has really impressed and deserves her call-up. A thanks should go to the wider co-operation of the unions and Allianz Premier 15s clubs for enabling players to have this international sevens opportunity on the big stage.
“This group of players have created a really open and honest culture, it’s been exciting to see that grow over the last month and it’s great to be able to take that to Dubai.
“It’s been an unbelievable experience since coming together at the start of the year. We’ve developed even more and are in a better place post-Tokyo. The players have left GB in a better place for when it returns.”
