- Red Roses name side for second Canada Test
- Breach enjoys England debut
- But tickets for Tuesday's game here
Red Roses players have led tributes to captain Sarah Hunter ahead of her reaching 100 caps in the second Old Mutual Wealth Series Test match against Canada.
Better known as 'Sunter' to her team mates, here are some of the current players in their own words about what the 32-year-old brings to the team.
'A true Red Rose'
England flanker Marlie Packer: "I came across Sarah when I got my first cap in Amsterdam in 2008. The sevens girls were out there playing and I remember being stood next to her and watching them and she had that smile across her face.
"She is a very kind and caring person and she puts everyone else first before herself. She’s very dedicated, honest and sometimes when you’re having one of those days or five minutes, you see her and she’s got that smile on her face and she is always the first to put an arm around you - whatever is needed she is there.
"She’ll never not throw herself at anything and not give it 110% and that is the quality as a player, person and captain that she is and it really shows through. She’s awesome in the back row with us and we joke about her being like our glue.
"She stands tall and you know when she says she’s got your inside when you’re flying off to hit the 10 that she’s got it, and that is around the pitch. When she speaks people listen to her and believe in what she’s saying.
"She is a very different kind of captain as she’s calm and collected, she makes the right call at the right time and she’s not hot headed and gets her point across that is needed which is really good for us as a squad.
"Sunter is a true Red Rose. From the moment she wakes up in the morning until she goes to bed, she puts that rose first and the squad first. She’s a great ambassador for the game and what she does on and off the pitch, people follow her."
The role model
England flanker Izzy Noel-Smith: "For me she has always been what it means to be a red rose.
“I have always looked up to her as she’s been one of the pivotal corners to the back row and coming into the squad she is someone I’ve always looked up to. "Whatever she is doing she’s doing it to 100%."
“The first time I saw her playing was against her at Lichfield and playing flanker against her when she is the opposition No 8 is never fun when you’re 19 or 20. I think I was a little bit in awe of her.
“Anybody who gets to 100 caps has done phenomenally well and should always be remembered.
“Her thing is work ethic, whatever she is doing she’s doing it to 100%. Even in the meetings she’s writing everything down, every single little tiny detail.
“She’s a very friendly girl, she’s always got a smile on her face, she’s got those dimples which are adorable .
Leader of the pack
England fly half Katy Daley-Mclean: "All the best come from the north east don’t they? And she kind of epitomises it all.
"I’ve known her since we were 14 and playing north east junior rugby and she hasn’t changed, she’s got bigger and stronger, but the person she is, is the same – she’s smiley, she’s fun, extremely loyal and a caring cookie. I’m very, very lucky to have played so long with her.
"She’s everything you imagine a good person to be, she’s smiley, she’s bubbly, she works extremely hard. She is just great to be around, she’s a true squad player as she wants everyone to do well and I think if that meant cutting off her right hand for everybody to get where they needed to, she’d do that.
"She leads by example and leads from the front, she’s not your type of captain who is a shouter or anything like that.
"It’s very much ‘I’m going to go and put my head where no one else wants to’ and we have a responsibility to follow her and do the same."
The 100 club
England prop Rochelle Clark, who has 130 caps: "She was a young spring chicken when I first saw her, with bags of potential.
"She is always smiling and has probably done that for the 99 caps. She's a lovely girl and a great person on and off the pitch. "A great player and asset to England"
"It’s great to get another stalwart of the game past 100 caps and she deserves it as she’s been around a long time. She’s come back from quite a few injuries and put her hand up and been a great player and asset to England.
"She is just so reliable as you just know she’ll do the graft and if anything goes wrong she’ll set it up and start again and give you a platform. She’s a safe and honest player and that is fantastic to have in your back row with someone so reliable.
"She’s inspirational with how she plays and she knows the right stuff to say. A great player to play alongside and she now enters a legendary club and it's brilliant to see such a hard working girl join that club".
