Scotland Head Coach Bryan Easson has named a 35-player squad for the 2022 TikTok Women’s Six Nations.
The entire squad that beat Colombia at the Rugby World Cup 2021 Final Qualification Tournament in Dubai has been recalled, with three others returning to compete in Rugby’s Greatest Championship.
Experienced internationals Jodie Rettie, Abi Evans and Hannah Smith are all back to bolster Easson’s squad ahead of their opener against old rivals and defending champions England.
Rachel Malcolm will once again skipper the team in their opener at the DAM Health Stadium on Saturday March 26, with Helen Nelson supporting her as vice-captain.
Easson said: “We’ve had an exciting start to the year after claiming the last spot in this year’s World Cup in New Zealand, but it’s important that our focus now turns fully to the Six Nations.
“The hard work and effort that the squad have displayed in recent training sessions has been terrific and our priority over the next six weeks will be about building on the positive progress that we’ve seen over the past year.
“The opening round of the tournament will see us host defending champions, England, which will be a tough test, but I know the players are relishing the chance to challenge themselves in front of a home support.”
Your @Womens6Nations squad has been confirmed and now it’s time to back them!
