Keswick's Abbie Scott has been named in England Women's starting line-up for their Quilter International against France.

Former Keswick School and Sedbergh School student Scott, 26, is due to earn her 42nd international cap at Exeter Chiefs’ Sandy Park on Saturday (kick-off at 1.10pm).

Elsewhere, Worcester Warriors women’s Lydia Thompson gets the nod on the wing, while Marlie Packer is set to earn her 70th cap with Sarah Hunter, once again, captaining the team.

The Red Roses name the same 23-player group which secured an impressive 20-10 victory over Les Bleus at the Stade de Michelin in Clemont-Ferrand last weekend.

Head coach Simon Middleton said: “We were delighted to secure our first win in France since 2012. The players put a real shift in and stuck to the plan.

“We have had a good week’s recovery and preparation, which we will now complete in Devon.

“As we expected, last week’s game was incredibly competitive while at the same time, it was clear to see that both sides hadn’t played competitively for a couple of months.

"However, I expect both teams to have shaken off some of the ring rust this week and the skill execution should be evident in the performances."

Middleton added on England Rugby's website: “Sandy Park is a great venue.

“When we played there against Italy in the Six Nations, the reception from the crowd and the people of Exeter was brilliant and we can’t wait for Saturday's game.”
