Canada Women Tour to England in November for Three Match Series


While the men travel to Europe to face Georgia, Spain and Fiji, the women will be travelling to England. Their last match will be played at Twickenham on November 25th and looks to be scheduled after the England v Samoa men's match.

The big question is who will be coaching the side now that Francois Ratier has moved to the men's program. Shaun Allen was the assistant, then you have provincial women's coaches like Aaron Frisby who led BC, Jen Boyd the U20 coach, Dan Valley the U18 coach or University coaches like UVic's Brittany Waters. Who else is on your radar for the position?

England Women’s fixtures for the Old Mutual Wealth Series have been confirmed, with the side playing three home games this November.

The Red Roses will take on Canada in back-to-back games across the three match series with the first game to be played at Allianz Park on Friday 17 November, kick off 19:30, live stream via Englandrugby.com and England Rugby Facebook.

The two sides will next meet in a midweek fixture at The Stoop on Tuesday 21 November, kick off 19:45, before playing in the series finale at Twickenham Stadium, kick off at 17:40 (live Sky Sports Arena & Sky Sports Mix) with free entry after the men’s game against Samoa.

England Women head coach Simon Middleton said: “2017 has been an exceptional year for women’s rugby at international level with the team securing a Six Nations Grand Slam, a whitewash tour in New Zealand in June and reaching the final of the Women’s Rugby World Cup.

"We want to continue to build on the successes of last season and are looking forward to taking on Canada, a world-class side, in what will be a demanding three-Test series in November.”

England have played Canada a total of 25 times, winning 21 of those, including the 2014 Women’s Rugby World Cup final. The two sides most recently met in Christchurch, New Zealand during the International Women's Rugby Series in June, with England securing a hard fought 27-20 win.

Tickets for the England Women Old Mutual Wealth series will be available via EnglandRugby.com/tickets from 9am on Friday 29th September.
