Red Roses squad for the Autumn Internationals confirmed

Red Roses head coach Simon Middleton has named a 40-player training squad ahead of the 2021 autumn internationals.

The Red Roses will face New Zealand twice, before taking on Canada and the USA, with all four games broadcast live on BBC 2. 

The squad is a mix of experience and youth, featuring 11 uncapped players, and also sees the return of Sarah Bern, after missing most of the 2020/21 season through injury.

The group assemble for the first of two preparation camps at Bisham Abbey next week (11-14 October) with the second camp taking place (18-21 October) before coming together to begin their autumn campaign on Tuesday 26 October.
