Three women from Saracens are named in the England international women’s rugby squad to play in the Rugby Europe Grand Prix Sevens Series.
This is very happy news for the Saracens rugby club and a moment to rejoice. The three women that will be taking part in the final leg of the Rugby Europe Grand Prix Sevens Series are Deborah Fleming, Lotte Clpaa and Lauren Cattell. These three women were newly contracted to the Saracens squad.
The Saracens women’s trio will be taking part in the senior sevens circuit along with the four Rio Olympians of the English squad. This is a great opportunity for the women to engage and indulge with the Rio Olympians and to improve their game. The England rugby players were part of two mixed Great Britain squads for the first round of the series that took place in Kazan in Russia. For the second leg, England will be playing as GB Lions and the Wales team will be coming out with a GB Royals squad.
The GB Lions have been drawn in the Pool C as they are seeded number three in the series. They will be having Belgium, Italy and Ireland in their pool and will have to meet each of these teams in the opening rounds. The coach of the GB Lions team, Simon Middleton, is happy with the team that he has got and is excited that a few new names have been included in the squad. All the players in the squad have been brought into the team through the age-grade rugby and will be benefited from taking part in the Sevens series.
The coach said that this would be the first tournament for the team as a separate squad and the experienced Rio Olympians will help and guide the new players to play the tournament and enjoy the experience.
