Valkyrie name preliminary squad for trip to Barrow

York Valkyrie Director of Rugby Lindsay Anfield has confirmed her preliminary squad, in partnership with Inglis Chartered Accountants, for Sunday's 2023 Betfred Women’s Challenge Cup Group Four opener away to Barrow Raiders at the Matt Johnson Prestige Stadium (2pm).

Anfield makes two changes to her preliminary squad ahead of the trip to Cumbria.

Winger Eva Izumi and forward Jess Sharp come into Anfield’s preliminary squad for the first time this season.

The pair replace the suspended Jas Bell and Hollie-Mae Dodd, who made her final appearance in Sunday’s 26-6 win over St Helens in the Betfred Women’s Super League before an imminent and historic move to NRLW side Canberra Raiders next month.

York will be seeking to maintain their superb start to the 2023 season after club record wins over Leeds Rhinos (12-34) and St Helens (26-6) in the opening two rounds of the Betfred Women’s Super League.
