Abrahams: ‘Let’s make this one count’

Wales head coach Warren Abrahams had his say ahead of kickoff:

 “We’re excited about the opportunity to go out one more time in a Six Nations match and represent the jersey.

“It’s good to see some leaders getting additional responsibility with Hannah Jones as captain and another of our leaders Georgia (Evans) stepping up as vice-captain.

“I’m excited by the backline with some of the younger players such as Meg Davies and Caitlin Lewis hungry for opportunities and Jaz (Joyce) will no doubt add some spice at full-back.

“It’s a privilege to be in this position, opportunities like these don’t come around every day so we have to take responsibility now and make this one count.”

Team news

Captain fantastic Hannah Jones leads Wales this afternoon in the absence of Siwan Lillicrap, who was ruled out with an ankle injury suffered in Round 2. Inside centre Jones will be out to lead by example as her side hunt a maiden Women’s Six Nations victory. In Jones, Wales have the competition’s tackle (36) and turnover (7) queen.

Head Coach Warren Abrahams has made sweeping changes to the side who took on Ireland a fortnight ago. Scrum-half Megan Davies earns a first Test start, with full-back Jasmine Joyce, winger Caitlin Lewis and centre Gemma Rowland the other back-line changes.

Robyn Lock earns a first Women’s Six Nations start at hooker, while Bethan Dainton has the tall task of replacing Lillicrap at flanker in a back row that also includes Manon Johnes and Georgia Evans.
