York City Knights Ladies face Dewsbury Moor in their first Betfred Women’s Challenge Cup Group Stage on Sunday and Director of Rugby Lindsay Anfield has named her first 19 player squad of the year ahead of the match.
Three of the Ladies’ off-season recruits could make their first competitive appearances in for the Knights with England international full-back Tara Jane Stanley included alongside former Castleford forward Jasmine Bell and hooker Rhianna Aldridge.
Co-captains Katie Langan and Sinead Peach are both included in the preliminary squad ahead of the match that will see Anfield’s team face Dewsbury Moor, the team who stepped in last weekend to replace Widnes Vikings who opted to drop out of the Challenge Cup to focus on their league campaign.
The match will kick off at 2pm at Dewsbury Moor Sports Club, WF13 3NU. Supporters are able to attend with admission costing £2.50 for adults, £1 for concessions with under-16s going FREE!
