Rowland, Kabeya and Talling in for England at Twickenham

Loughborough Lightning’s Helena Rowland, Sadia Kabeya and Morwenna Talling are all in action for England this weekend, as Simon Middleton’s side take to Twickenham Stadium. 

Running out in front of a record crowd, England are gunning for the Grand Slam as they take on France in the final round of the 2023 TikTok Women’s Six Nations.

Rowland takes up outside centre for this weekend’s match after returning from a long-term injury last time out, joining Lightning teammate Kabeya in the starting line up – while Talling is primed to enter the action from the bench. 

Head coach Middleton said: “We’re really excited and looking forward to Saturday’s match against France in what will be another landmark moment in the women’s game.

“We’ve had some entertaining and tight battles with France over a long period of time and this one will be no different. Both teams have had strong Six Nations campaigns off the back of presenting different game plans from what we have seen before. 

“Playing in front of a record crowd is a huge marker of where the game is at. It’s huge testament to the hard work of many people at the RFU and it bodes extremely well building up to the 2025 World Cup.”
