Saracens’ Sarah McKenna has been called up to replace Alice Richardson in this week’s Sevens World Series event at the Twickenham Stoop and Twickenham Stadium (May 15-16).
McKenna, who featured in the last round of the World Series in Canada, comes in for the Richmond fly-half who failed a fitness test this morning.
England head into this week’s penultimate leg of the series hoping to better their third place finish last time out as they chase a top four finish which would secure them automatic qualification into the 2016 Olympic Games.
Tickets for the WSWS are still available via www.quins.co.uk.
