Worcester prop Rochelle Clark wins England Six Nations call-up
WORCESTER prop Rochelle Clark has won a call-up to England’s front row for Saturday’s Six Nations clash against Ireland at Ashbourne RFC (2pm).
The Sixways loosehead is joined in head coach Gary Street’s starting XV by fly-half Ceri Large, who was a two-try hero in Saturday’s 76-0 demolition of Scotland in England’s Six Nations opener.
Another Worcester player, prop Laura Keates, has been named among the replacements as Street makes seven changes to the side that took on the Scots.
Street, whose side are defending Six Nations champions, said: “As always, I want to rotate the squad and give players game time.
“We have brought in some real experience in the front row for Saturday’s game in Rochelle Clark and Sophie Hemming, who share 120 caps between them.”
