Team announcement: Leicestershire v Eastern Counties women


May 2017

The team for Sundays second Women’ County Championship match has been named.  After a fantastic opening victory against Cheshire on the previous weekend 39-17  Leicestershire followed this up with a 39-15 victory over Warwickshire. This has now set up a potential pool decider with Eastern Counties.

This weekend sees only two changes to the starting line up  with Daphne Fromes switching from the bench with fellow Leicester university back row Jade Shakespeare in a reverse of last weeks. Frankie Rushton makes her much awaited championship debut on the wing, after sitting out the earlier two rounds. Frankie comes in for Abi Gordon who is away playing for the Midlands under 18’s with fellow squad member Amy Relph.

The match is at Lutterworth RFC Sunday 7th May and kicks off at 14:30 it would be great to have some support.
