Rugby: Scotland Women squad announced for Six Nations

January 13, 2012

Scotland Women head coach Karen Findlay has today announced a 27-strong training squad for Scotland Women’s 2012 RBS Six Nations championship.

The Scots’ first game is at home against England on Sunday 5 February and Findlay’s squad combines a perfect combination of both youth and experience.

Number 8 Susie Brown, scrum half Louise Dalgliesh and lock Lindsay Wheeler, with 50, 49 and 47 caps respectively will all feature and the only uncapped member of the squad is second row Bridget Millar-Mills.

Findlay said: “England at home is a massive challenge. Last year we fielded an incredibly young, inexperienced team down at Twickenham. It’ll be good to see the hard work we’ve done since then coming to fruition against the same opposition at Lasswade this year.

“I think there will be huge support for the England home game. The local community was fantastic in supporting our games at Lasswade last year – it’s a superb pitch with great facilities.

“Stirling is a new location for us, for the France game. I think it’s important that we do as good a job as we can to move the women’s game around Scotland so that as many people as possible get the chance to see women’s sport at this level.”

The competition culminates away against Italy on Sunday 18 March for Scotland at the Rovato Stadium, Brescia.
