Following a busy week of international rugby, we take a look back at how our players performed for their respected nations.
Grace Field, sponsored by Aysgarth Falls Hotel, and Kelsey Gentles, sponsored by Weltch Media, were both named in England’s 19-player squad ahead of Friday’s game with Wales.
However, when it came to gameday, Gentles did miss out on a spot in the starting 17.
Field, therefore, became the sole York representative as England took to the pitch in Warrington.
The 2021 World Cup hosts put on a clinic as they ran out 60-0 winners against an inexperienced Welsh outfit.
Field was not one of try scorers in the game but did make an impact in front of the Sky Sports cameras.
Speaking about the match, she said: “It’s was great game to be a part of. The atmosphere in camp has been great and to get out there and get the win is incredible.
“The girls were amazing, relentless and ruthless. To hold a team to no points on the international stage is no mean feat and everyone should be really proud of their efforts.”
On the other side of the world, Savannah Andrade, sponsored by The fm Company UK, was gearing up to make her debut appearance for Jamaica.
Andrade flew out to Los Angeles and joined-up with her national side ahead of the Quest For Gold 7s tournament.
After a heavy loss to the United States in their opening encounter, Jamaica came back strong in the second game, winning 29-10 against an experienced Mexico side.
On the second day, Jamaica featured in two more group games against the Mexican outfit.
In the first contest, the Lady Crocs ran out 17-10 winners before losing the second encounter 32-5.
Andrade scored one try as Jamaica booked their spot in the third-place play-off against… you guessed it, Mexico.
Unfortunately for the Lady Crocs, they were ultimately beaten 33-19 at the Dignity Health Sports Park – the home of LA Galaxy.
This week, the attention for our internationals turns to domestic action when the Ladies will face Bradford Bulls at the LNER Community Stadium.
The game will be part of a historic doubleheader with the men kicking off the show against Newcastle Thunder at 3pm. The Betfred Women’s Super League clash is scheduled to follow at 5.15pm.
