Scotland name five Loughborough Lightning players in starting line-up to face England

Scotland have named five Loughborough Lightning players in their starting line-up for this weekend’s Guinness Women’s Six Nations clash with England.

Chloe Rollie, who has operated as a replacement in the opening two rounds, is restored to the run-out side and earns her 64th cap at fullback on Saturday 13 April (kick-off: 2.15pm) at Hive Stadium, Edinburgh.

Fresh from her Lightning contract extension being announced this week, Rachel Malcolm captains her country from blindside flanker as she moves to 45 caps.

Christine Belisle – who also had a new Lightning deal confirmed since Scotland last played – packs down at tighthead prop, Helen Nelson vice captains Scotland from fly-half and Emma Wassell features in the second row. 

They will come up against Lightning teammate Sadia Kabeya, who has been selected at openside flanker for England.
