Red Roses set for record attendance against Italy
England women’s Six Nations match against Italy is expected to be played in front around 10,000 people, setting a new record attendance for a home non-World Cup game.
The Red Roses are three bonus-point wins from three so far in the 2019 Women’s Six Nations as they prepare to face unbeaten Italy at Sandy Park, Exeter in the fourth round.

Having surpassed 110 caps in this year’s Six Nations campaign, Sarah Hunter of Loughborough Lightning returns to the starting line-up as captain.
Emily Scarratt, also of Loughborough Lightning, is named at centre having missed the Red Roses clash against Wales in the third round through injury.
After being selected as a replacement against Wales, Worcester Valkyries’ hooker Lark Davies will start as hooker in an otherwise unchanged front row.
