Eight more Lightning stars heading to Six Nations

Eight further stars from the joint Northampton Saints / Loughborough Lightning team have been picked for their respective countries ahead of the TikTok Women’s Six Nations – with the Scotland and Wales squad announced earlier this week. 

Carys Williams-Morris and Amelia Tutt earn the call for Wales ahead of the upcoming championship, with fellow Lightning teammates Leah Bartlett, Christine Belisle, Helen Nelson, Rachel Malcolm, Chloe Rollie and Emma Wassell linking up with Scotland as the tournament gets underway on 25 March. 

Malcolm once again skippers Scotland, with Lightning’s Nelson named vice-captain for the championship as Scotland get their campaign started against England at Kingston Park. While Wales kick-off their tournament at home, hosting Ireland at Cardiff Arms Park in the opening round. 

Scotland head coach Bryan Easson said: “We are entering a fresh, exciting period for the Scotland Women programme, with professional contracts in place, new faces to the squad and management team and a new Rugby World Cup cycle beginning.

“We have a good mix of experienced and younger players, so will be exciting to see what the group are capable of over the coming weeks.”

And Wales head coach Ioan Cunningham added: “This is always an exciting moment naming a squad and this is very much a fresh start after the recent World Cup and we cannot wait to get back out there and to play again.

“We are building nicely, the tournament is not too far away and Ireland will be our first challenge and we are looking to starting the campaign well. We have six uncapped players named in the squad and we know it’s important we expose some new players.”
