After a successful week in GB 7s camp, Burton returns to the back row in the eight shirt.

An impressive game against Exeter see’s Nye bag the starting nine jersey with Wong returning on the bench as replacement scrum half.

Kildunne also returns to the starting line up- she will slot in at fullback and Dow will move out to the wing.

Finally, with Williams out with injury- Edwards will make her first appearance this season as replacement 10.
