Harlequins Women name first side of 2020

Friday, 10th January 2020 @ 12:00

Fiona Fletcher will make her 50th appearance for Harlequins Women as the side visits Gloucester Hartpury on Saturday.

Prop Vickii Cornborough marks her return from long term injury, starting alongside England prop Shaunagh Brown, as fellow England Sarah Beckett joins her in the pack as part of a star-studded back row consisting of Italian international Giada Franco and Scottish number eight Jade Konkel.

Harlequins Women Co-Head Coach Gary Street said: “Whilst the international break is nearly upon us, focus has not deterred from the matter in hand; Tyrrells Premier 15s action against a forever improving and growing side in Gloucester Hartpury.

“We may not have certain players available for selection but what we do have is a squad filled with experience, talent and huge potential and it’s great to be able to honour another milestone moment with Fi Fletcher making her 50th competitive appearance in the famous Quarters.”
