Talling returns for final clash of 2020

rugby players on the pitch

Loughborough Lightning will take to the pitch for the final time this year against reigning champions, Saracens Women on Saturday.

After a hard-fought win against Exeter last week, Lightning will make only two changes to their starting side. 

Morwenna Talling returns in the second row and will line up next to Canadian powerhouse Courtney Holtkamp. Detysha Harper is also given the starting shirt at prop. 

Saracens will no doubt prove to be tough opposition, however, after a brilliant performance against Exeter last time out they will be eager to end the year on a high.   

Rhys Edwards said of the game:

“Games against Saracens are always a spectacle, and in a 70-minute game, anything can happen so I'm excited about the opportunity to go and play.

The last couple of games we have played against them have been high scoring, competitive games so we know we can Challenge.

We know it is going to be a very physical battle and we need to make sure we stay on top so that we have an opportunity to play our expansive rugby.”

The game will kick off at 2 pm and will be live-streamed.
