  • +1

Karen Findlay and Gary Street have named their matchday squad for their showdown with Saracens Women at Ealing Trailfinders RC on Sunday.

It is a star-studded side with Commonwealth bronze-medallist Jess Breach making her return to the 22.

Speaking ahead of the final Harlequins Ladies Co-Head Coach Gary Street said: “We are all extremely excited. We have had a great week’s training, and we have been able to pick a settled team for the final.

“We have a really strong bench and though Ellie Miles misses out, having Jess Breach available has given us all a great boost. I’m sure it’s going to be a final worth watching and a great showcase of the current state of the women’s game”.

The two London-based teams shared the spoils during the regular season having each won a match against the other away from home.

Jess Wooden starts at full-back for Quins with Holly Myers and Natasha Bradshaw providing pace from the wings. In the midfield captain Rachael Burford is partnered by Fiona Pocock, with Ellie Green at ten and Leanne Riley at nine.

Up front, Vickii Cornborough starts at loosehead with Davinia Catlin at hooker and Chloe Edwards at three. In the second row Abbie Scott partners Zoe Saynor and in the loose Shaunagh Brown and Deborah McCormack start on the flanks with vice-captain Fiona Fletcher at number eight.

Quins’ finishers for Sunday’s final are Tove Viksten, Ashleigh Greenslade, Alex Hardy, Samantha McCarthy, Bobbie Haywood, Jess Breach, and Stacey White.
