Wasps Ladies hit the road to face Gloucester Hartpury

  • +1

Wasps Squad Announcement

Last week saw the return of Tyrrell’s premier 15s to Twyford Avenue for the first game of the new season. Wasps Ladies took to the field against Worcester Warriors and put in a strong shift to secure the win and promising start to the season. Despite an early lead from the visitors, tables soon turned with tries from Hannah West, Gemma Rowland, Cliodhna Moloney, Sarah Mitchelson and Lucy Nye taking the final score to 47-10.

This week the squad heads west to take on Gloucester Hartpury in a double header with the 2XV team. Head Coach Giselle Mather has named her squad and believe you me, it’s a force to be reckoned with. The front row remains unchanged with Cripps, West and Moloney leading the pack. Further back, Sarah Mitchelson returns to the starting line up and we welcome back Alex Powell to the second row!

Captain Kate Alder will lead the team from inside centre, with the addition of Katie Mason to the back three. And it’s sure to be a strong finish with a wealth of experience and skill on the bench, welcoming back Louise Dodd as a converted forward and new recruit Edel McMahon.

If you find yourself heading west, kick off is at 4pm at Hartpury #showup #feelthebuzz
