England Women vs Canada Women live 14 November 2021: results and latest updates.
The women of England face Canada in the Stoop today after two notable victories over New Zealand.
Simon Middleton, England’s head coach, has chosen to rotate his side as the Red Roses look to extend their winning streak to 17 test matches after underscoring their status as World Cup favorites with those two emphatic wins over the Ferns. Blacks
Middleton has delivered debuts to Loughborough Lightning wing Sadia Kabeya and Harlequins wing, Heather Cowell, for the occasion.
“We are delighted to give two players their first international games,” Middleton said. “Sadia has been brilliant since she came to camp in the preseason; she is a fantastic athlete and someone we have known for a long time.
“A winger’s job is to score down attempts and Heather Cowell does just that. The way she goes about her business is brilliant. Both players deserve their start.”
Poppy Cleall and Abbie Ward will be sold out for the fiftieth time for their country. Sarah Hunter returns to the starting lineup and will be the captain of the team.
“Abbie and Poppy have been an integral part of our team for several years and we look forward to celebrating and recognizing their 50 caps at The Stoop,” said Middleton.
