Keswick's Abbie Scott has been named in England women's team for their historic first match against Barbarians women.

Scott, 26, is joined in the starting line-up by Harlequins team-mate Leanne Riley ahead of Sunday's clash at Twickenham (12.45pm kick-off), while fellow club-mate Chloe Edwards is one of the Red Roses' finishers and will look to make her first England appearance from the bench.

With 113 international caps to her name, Sarah Hunter captains the side.

She is joined by Kelly Smith, of Gloucester-Hartpury Women’s RFC, who was the top try-scorer in the Tyrrells Premier 15s this season, scoring an impressive 24 tries.

"This is the first time England women has played the Barbarians and we know it will be a fantastic occasion," head coach Simon Middleton told England Rugby's website.

"The Barbarians side is really experienced with 946 caps between the players which will make the game a real challenge. The Red Roses want to play the best possible teams and a Barbarians side with this level of strength and depth will guarantee a testing encounter.

"Our last run-out at Twickenham against Scotland in the Six Nations produced an incredibly impressive performance by the team and although we’re fielding a very changed side, with several players out due to injury, Sunday’s game will be a great opportunity for younger players to step up.

"This match is an important next step in our summer tour preparations and in the longer term as we build up to the Women’s Rugby World Cup in 2021."

Cath O'Donnell, from Maryport, misses out through injury.
