England Women’s Rugby train ahead of Black Ferns test
25 November 2011
England Women’s Rugby have been training hard at Surrey Sports Park this week in preparation for their match at Twickenham against world champions New Zealand this weekend.
Reigning Six Nations and Nations Cup champions, England Women, will make a popular return to the home of England Rugby when they take on the world champions in this exciting test series which also sees the two sides meet on November 29 and December 3 at Esher RFC.
Katy McLean, England captain, said: “We have been in our training camp at Surrey Sports Park now for four days and we have fitted a lot in. It is great being back in the camp environment; there’s a brilliant atmosphere with the new players fitting in well with the more experienced heads. It is certainly a good place to be at the moment.
We have covered a lot in the time we’ve had and we are feeling good right now. Now it is a matter of counting down until Saturday as we can’t wait for this challenge. It’s time to stop talking off the pitch and do it on it and we are really ready.”
