Red Roses team named for final Canada Test

Red Roses head coach Simon Middleton has made seven changes for the final Old Mutual Wealth Series Test match against Canada at Twickenham Stadium (live on Sky Sports).

England have already won the series after the 79-5 and 49-12 wins in the opening two fixtures and will be looking to complete a whitewash at the home of England Rugby.

Lagi Tuima makes her first start for England at outside centre after her debut on Tuesday, with Abigail Dow, Jess Breach, Vickii Cornborough, Abbie Scott, Poppy Cleall and Rowena Burnfield the other changes. Justine Lucas is set for her first appearance of the series from the bench after recovering from injury.

The Red Roses game will take place after the senior men's match at Twickenham Stadium with kick-off at 17:40 and entry is free for all of those who attend.

“We set our stall out at the beginning of the series to win every game and we are focused on delivering on that," said Middleton.

"It’s not going to be easy, as expected Canada were a very different side on Tuesday and we expect them to be better again come Saturday.

“As a team we are looking to improve certain areas of our play. We have done some great things across both games, particularly in our defence and finishing, but now we want to bring it together and deliver a more complete performance on Saturday."
