Valkyrie confirm preliminary squad for 2023 Women's Nines Finals


York Valkyrie Director of Rugby Lindsay Anfield has confirmed her preliminary squad, in partnership with Inglis Chartered Accountants, for Saturday's Women's Nines Finals at the Salford City Stadium (10am).


Anfield has recalled half-back Chloe Smith to her preliminary squad, with props Jas Bell, Grace Field, Daisy Sanderson, Jess Sharp and Aimee Staveley dropping out amid the smaller squad size restrictions for the Women's Nines Finals.
