Army Women’s Senior XV team mates will become rivals this weekend in the second round of the 2020/21 Premier 15s.
Bdr Bethan Dainton (Royal Artillery) and SSgt Sarah Mitchelson (RLC) will be in direct competition in the back row on Saturday as Harlequins head to Wasps. Dainton’s Quins had the perfect start in Round 1, beating DMP Durham Sharks 103-0 at the Stoop, while Mitchelson’s Wasps are playing their first game of the competition following the postponement of last weekend’s scheduled trip to Bristol.
Capt Gemma Rowland (Royal Artillery) is also in the Wasps team, starting in the centres, and you can see how all three players get on by checking out the RFU’s live stream at www.Premier15s.com
Elsewhere in the competition forward Capt Erica Mills (Royal Artillery) is in line for her first action of the campaign, having been named on the Gloucester-Hartpury bench for their trip to Loughborough.
We send all four players our best wishes for a successful weekend!
