Vicky Macqueen has named the matchday squad for Round Four of Allianz Premiership Women's Rugby, an away game against Trailfinders Women, with Natasha Jones set to captain the side.

The front-row sees wholesale changes, as Elis Martin gets set for her first Tigers start at hooker, with Leah Bartlett and Keia Mae Sagapolu Sanele either side as loosehead and tighthead prop respectively.

The second-row sees Charlotte Fray return to the starting XV, partnering Catha Jacobs in the second row.

The back-row sees Eva Donaldson move to blindside flanker, with Becky Noon moving across to openside, the versatile forward having now featured in all three back-row positions and in the second-row thus far this season.

The half-backs are retained from last time out, while Katie Childs' is set for her first start in Allianz Premiership Women's Rugby, partnering Meg Jones in the centres.

On the bench, Churchy Knight and Sarah Nicholas both return to the squad.
