England’s most-capped player, Sarah Hunter, captains the side from eight, with Emily Scarratt on hand to play outside center.

We have achieved continuity in squad selection through training, the pool stages, and the quarterfinals,” remarked head coach Simon Middleton.

However, you should be willing to take risks with your decisions if doing so would enhance or generate new images that you feel will boost the team’s performance.

We’ve maintained that approach throughout the competition so far, and we have no plans to alter our strategy.

In the women’s game, Canada is a formidable foe with a rich history and impressive lineage.
