Scarratt returns to the Lightning line-up

Women’s World Rugby player of the year Emily Scarratt returns to the Lightning line-up ahead of their away clash with third in the table Gloucester-Hartpury this Saturday.

With the return of Scarratt and momentum with the side from their previous two victories over Richmond and Worcester Warriors respectively, Lightning will look to apply the pressure to the home side. 

With Gloucester-Hartpury sat just three points ahead of Lightning in the table, an away win this weekend could see Rhys Edwards’ side rise to third in the table heading into the Christmas break.

However, Gloucester-Hartpury will not give up their spot easily as last season proved with Lightning clinching the win by a single point in the final seconds of the game. This week could be one of the toughest match-ups this season.

The first team game will kick off at 4pm and the development side at 4.45pm with both games will be played at Alpas Arena.
