Red Roses Training Squad Confirmed

  • +1

Head coach John Mitchell has named a 38-player training squad for the Red Roses’ first camp of 2024.

The squad will assemble on Monday 22 January for three days as England begin their preparations for the Guinness Women’s Six Nations which starts in late March.

Of his squad, Mitchell said: “We are excited to come together for our first camp of 2024 and build on the positive experience of WXV and introduce some new people to what we are about.

“It is our first opportunity to revisit what we value, update our athletic profiling data of the group and re-focus on where our game is working and where we take it to next.”
