Butchers set for Valkyries debut

Valkyries’ latest signing Alisha Butchers is set to make her debut against Gloucester-Hartpury in Saturday’s Tyrrells Premier 15s match at Sixways (kick-off 2.00pm).

The 20-times-capped Wales back row forward joined Valkyries earlier this week and has been named as a replacement for their first match of 2019.

Butchers, who has joined Valkyries from Scarlets, is the sixth new recruit to join Valkyries in the past month.

Fly-half Megan Goddard, who rejoined Valkyries from Gloucester-Hartpury last month, will play against her former club on Saturday.

Former Firwood Waterloo flanker Katie Jenkins and ex-Cardiff Blues full-back Millie Williams will both start against Gloucester-Hartpury.

Valkyries Development XV will also play Gloucester-Hartpury in the second match of Saturday’s double-header at Sixways (kick-off 4.30pm).
