- Scarratt skippers England Women against Canada
- Seven changes to team that lost to New Zealand
Emily Scarratt will captain England Women when they take on fellow Rugby World Cup finalists Canada in the Rugby Super Series at Ellerslie Rugby Park in Edmonton, Canada (kick off 1am BST, Monday morning).
Rugby World Cup winner Scarratt, who scored 16 points against the same opponents in last summer's decider, takes over the captaincy from Sarah Hunter. She begins the game among the replacements.
Scarratt switches from centre to full back and is one of seven changes to the starting line-up. Scarratt's place in the centre is filled by Claire Allan, who was called up to the squad on Wednesday.
Worcester’s Ceri Large will start in the 12 jersey with Emily Scott returning at fly half after Megan Jones was ruled out through injury.
In the pack, Richmond’s Rowena Burnfield starts at lock, while Heather Fisher and Hannah Gallagher start in place of Marlie Packer and Hunter.
England Head Coach Simon Middleton, whose side are looking to pick up their second win of the series after defeat to New Zealand on Wednesday, said: “Emily will take over as captain from Sarah and that was one of the reason’s she was vice-captain for the game against New Zealand.
"Like Sarah, she has great leadership qualities, the players listen to her and she has great game understanding so I am sure she’ll make a big impression in this new role.
“As you’d expect with a tournament like this, with three games in eight days, we have picked up some injuries and that has forced us to make changes.
"A lot of players have also had a lot of game time, like Sarah Hunter and Sarah McKenna, so we need to manage them appropriately and this time we’ll use them to make an impact off the bench.
"We also have a lot of quality in the back row with Heather Fisher, Alex Matthews and Hannah Gallagher starting.
“Claire Allan, who flew out to Canada just a couple of days ago, will start after Katie Mason and Fiona Pocock suffered injuries. She is an experienced player, who can play on the wing or in the centre, so I expect her to fit in easily.
“Playing Canada 11 months on from the World Cup final will be very different. Both sides are in a rebuilding phase now so you cannot compare it.
"We were disappointed to lose to New Zealand in the week, but I am sure Canada will also be disappointed with their two defeats.
"That, however, makes them dangerous. Our challenge will be to win the physical battle with our emphasis on performance.”
