England Roses squad to play Uganda

Helen Housby, Serena Guthrie (C), Layla Guscoth, Rachel Dunn, Sasha Corbin, Razia Quashie, George Fisher, Jade Clarke (VC), Eboni Usoro-Brown, Natalie Haythornthwaite, Gabriella Marshall, Jodie Gibson.

This will be the first opportunity to watch the Roses on home soil since their Commonwealth Games gold medal. They beat Uganda en route to winning that tournament.

Serena Guthrie is set to captain a side which will feature several new faces, in the absence of Ama Agbeze who is injured.

“I think it’s going to be a really exciting series, Uganda are a really good up and coming African team and it’s going to be interesting to have them over for the three-match series,” said Guthrie.

The three fixtures against Uganda will act as preparation for the Roses before the 2019 World Cup.

“We actually have Uganda in our World Cup group so this series is about exposing players, seeing styles that actually match the opposition,” said Neville.

“It’s about giving players exposure to a team who are ranked number six and are an up and coming team.

“It’s also about consolidating selection places for that World Cup and giving people opportunities to put their best foot forward, so it’s hugely important that we go out there and win, but within that there’s a lot of processing and objectives we want to follow to be able to get the outcome by the end of January when we have to select our World Cup team.”
