In the second row, Charlotte Fray is re-introduced into league action alongside Georgia Bradley and, in the back row, Morgan Richardson and Roisin McBrien are the flankers and Kat Turner retains her place at No.8.

Amy Relf is back at scrum-half, continuing her record of switching between the 9 and 10 position which now extends to the last four league games, to join Ellie Turner as the starting half-backs, while Jones and Childs are reunited in the midfield for the having not started together since the record win at Harrogate.
