YORK City Knights Ladies prop Grace Field has noted England’s upcoming game against France will “present another test” for her side.

England Women’s will take on France at Halliwell Jones Stadium in Warrington (3.15pm) on Saturday.

The team are in good form, having beaten Wales 32-6 at Cross Keys RFC’s Pandy Park on Sunday.

Field feels that England’s upcoming clash with France will offer another challenge for them to overcome.

“I think (the Wales game was) a really good benchmark of how physical it can be.

“We’re all looking forward to the World Cup, obviously, but France will present another test for us.

“They are a really physical pack as we found out in October and hopefully we can play well and get the win against them.”

Field’s Knights teammate, forward Olivia Wood, made her international debut against Wales last weekend.

She and Wood were two of four Knights players to represent England in that match, with Tara Stanley and Hollie Dodd also turning out.

“I think they all went really well,” said Field, reflecting on England’s debutants. “It’s always tough to make your debut.

“I play with Liv (Wood) at York and I know how much it means to her especially. She’ll be made up, I think they all will be. They all really impressed (against Wales).”

The England Women’s team are preparing for the World Cup later this year, which will take place in England and run from October 15 to November 19.

Their clash with France will be their final international match before the tournament and the team are hoping for a large turnout of fans at Halliwell Jones Stadium.

“I think it’s really great,” enthused Field.

“It’s great advertisement for the women’s game, especially leading into the World Cup. We’ll definitely be there to put on a show, not just the men.

“Hopefully we can get fans down and get them to back us. We always play better with a bigger home crowd.”
