CARYL THOMAS STARTS FOR WALES

Warriors Women prop Caryl Thomas starts for Wales this Saturday as they take on Scotland at Scotstoun in their final Women’s Six Nations fixture (kick-off 5pm, live on BBC Scotland and BBC iPlayer).

Thomas has been a reliable force in Warriors’ front-row this season, helping the Allianz Premier 15s side to two wins and two bonus points in March to secure a top seven finish for her club side.

Wales Women Head Coach Warren Abrahams said: “We’re excited to go out one more time in a Six Nations match and represent the jersey.

“We know that we didn’t start well in our first two matches and we have to make sure we get straight out from the blocks on Saturday and build our innings from there.

“I always believe in the team, and I know if they can get themselves in the best possible mindset, get on the front foot and make some bold decisions, they can show what they’re made of.”
