Katy Daley Mclean has named her side to face Gloucester-Hartpury at the Alpas Arena in round 11 of the Allianz Premier 15s
There are just two changes from Sharks’ starting XV that faced Exeter last weekend, with Scottish pair Rachel McLachlan and Lisa Thomson returning to the fold.
McLachlan starts at blindside having last featured against Loughborough in December, with Thomson also featuring in that game. Daisy Hibbert-Jones moves to the bench.
Thomson starts at outside centre with Hollie Bawden moving to the wing and Lisa Neumann starting on the bench following the announcement of her full-time contract with the Welsh Rugby Union earlier this week.
On the bench, Ireland international prop Leah Lyons returns alongside another Scot – Sarah Law – who has put in several tempered performances at fly-half this season.
