Harlequins Women team for Sale Sharks clash named

  • +1

Harlequins Women Head Coach Gerard Mullen has named his matchday squad that will travel to Sale Sharks on Saturday afternoon as the Allianz Premier 15s returns to action.

The ever familiar all England front row returns after a successful Autumn International break, winning four out of four and securing the world number one spot.

Club Captain Rachael Burford returns to the matchday 23 after a long period of time on the side-lines following an injury sustained in the 2021/22 Allianz Premier 15s final, which saw Quins win their first league title.

Scotland internationals Sarah Bonar and Jade Konkel also return to the star-studded Quins forward pack, whilst England international Lagi Tuima slots back into the number twelve jersey.

Ahead of the clash, Mullen said: “We’re all looking forward to getting back into Premier 15s action this weekend as we travel up to face Sale Sharks. I’ve been really pleased with the way we have played throughout the Allianz Cup and to have our internationals back has boosted morale in camp.

“Everyone is aware that there is no easy game in this league, so we’ll need to make sure we’re at our best and trust our processes throughout the whole 80 minutes.”
