Four York Valkyrie stars have been included in the England Women’s Squad ahead of their first Rugby League World Cup match against Brazil.
Hollie Dodd, Grace Field, Tara-Jane Stanley and Olivia Wood – each of the four Valkyrie representatives in the squad – have been selected in the preliminary nineteen-player squad and could take to the field at Headingley Stadium.
Dodd, Stanley and Field could all make their World Cup debut in the process. England are in a group with Canada and Papua New Guinea, the latter of whom defeated the Valkyrie in a World Cup warm-up match last month.
England, should they finish in the top two of Group A, will advance to the semi-finals, both of which will be played as a double-header at the LNER Community Stadium on Monday 14th November.

Priced at £30 per matchday – all of which are double-headers – or £100 for all four, you can buy in-store from our Club Shop, over the phone on 01904 670880 or online HERE.
