Dunn and Greenway selected for England's ANZ Tour
06 September 2011
Surrey Storm captain Tamsin Greenway and Rachel Dunn have been selected to represent England for the upcoming tour to Australia and New Zealand after a successful trials weekend in Bath.
England Netball announced the 14-strong squad today:
Jade Clarke - Captain
*Subject to final confirmation.
Upon being selected, Greenway said, "We're hoping for a successful few weeks in Australia and New Zealand. It's always hard there as you play in front of sell-out vocal crowds, but it'll be great to travel through both countries and really test ourselves over the five games.
"We have a fairly new squad with lots of fresh faces, all young and exciting talent which you would expect at the start of a new four year cycle. It's a great opportunity to be going out to play the number one and two nations in the world, as we dont get many chances against the top sides. So although it will be tough, it's a really exciting challenge for all of us as we quest to build on becoming the best netballing nation in the world."
Laura Malcolm and Emma Dovey have been selected as reserves and will be part of the pre-tour preparations. Two of England’s overseas players, Ama Agbeze (who is currently based in Australia) and Rosie Allison (currently in New Zealand), will join the tour party as training partners.
