England Women’s Head Coach Simon Middleton said: “We are up against some quality opposition in the autumn series. Ireland and France are formidable opponents and that was very much underlined during last season’s Six Nations with Ireland taking the title and France finishing second.

“We are really looking forward to two great fixtures as we continue to develop our squad. It will be a tough opener against France away, always one of rugby’s ultimate tests, but we hope to impose ourselves on them, while Ireland I am sure will be a classic game between two great rivals.”
