Kathryn Turner comes into the team at No8, with Roisin McBrien, Ali Gale and Bryany Chalk in line for their first appearance of the pre-season programme against an Exiles team with experience of three successive league titles at Championship level.

Kick-off is at 5.30pm at Oval Park and supporters are welcome. Please note there is no parking available onsite.

The pre-season ends with a trip to Henley hawks next Sunday ahead of the Championship opener away to Bishop Auckland on September 18.
