Welwyn Rugby Club are well represented after the England U20 squad to tour Canada was announced.

Four of their former players will go on the three-match trip next month which will see the young Red Roses face Canada twice and the USA once.

Hannah Botterman, Zoe Harrison, Ellena Perry and Ella Wyrwas are the players selected in the 26-player squad by head coach Jo Yapp.

Yapp said: “This tour to Canada is a fantastic opportunity for us. It allows us to build on the time we’ve already had together this season as a squad and continue developing the players that are coming through the women’s pathway.

“Getting to play three away matches, including against Canada in Canada, will be a tough challenge but also an exciting opportunity for this group of players.

“We can’t wait to get out there and know this tour, like any international one, will offer a great learning experience for the squad.”

The games will be streamed live online at www.rugby.ca
