RFUW Development team to play Combined Services England Women's A Coach Mike Barnett has today (Tuesday) named his RFUW Development team for Tuesday's November 4th clash against the Combined Services at Plymouth Albion RFC, kick-off 5pm. The RFUW Development team is a side comprising England Under 20s players and players who are on the fringes of the England Elite 44 squad. In total there are seven England Under 20s players involved from last season, while the likes of Karina Page and Charlotte Boggis have previously played for England A.Coach Barnett said: "The concept of this squad and fixture is to give some of the players who have not quite made the Elite 44 squad a chance to show us what they can do. All of them are regular players on the Premiership circuit. "We have a second RFUW Development fixture against Italy A in December and these two games are a chance for the players to put their hands up ahead of a busy New Year. There is real chance that some of these players could be playing for England A next season as many of our Elite squad will be involved in the iRB Rugby World Cup 7s and the RBS 6 Nations. "The Combined Services are a side we know very little about, but I am expecting this to be a physical and entertaining match."RFUW Development Team1 Laura Keates, Worcester *2 Samantha Jamieson, Darlington Mowden Park Sharks3 Victoria Cornborough, Richmond4 Sara Anastasi , Richmond5 Frances Archer, Leo Ladies6 Isabelle Noel-Smith, Bath *7 Laura Jenkins, Richmond8 Sian Williams, Saracens9 Ally Taft , Lichfield10 Claire Garner, Leo Ladies11 Elizabeth Riley, Wasps12 Sarah McKenna , Old Albanian Saints *13 Charlotte Boggis , Bath14 Samantha Bree , Worcester *15 Ashleigh Wright , Darlington Mowden Park SharksReplacements: 16 Victoria Fleetwood , Lichfield *17 Tracy Balmer , Worcester18 Jenny Brightmore, Loughborough19 Gemma Nunnerley, Lichfield20 Rachael Fraser, Lichfield *21 Karina Page, Old Albanian Saints22 , Kimberley Davey , Richmond* *2007/2008 England Under 20s squad member Captain TBC
