Konkel To Start At Prop For Scottish Women
Written by RockSport on January 19, 2018
Scotland women will utilise several key players in different positions as they hone their Six Nations preparations in Sunday’s warm-up match against Spain.
Back-rower Jade Konkel, one of four professional players, will start at prop, as she did for the first time in a friendly against Spain in November.
Captain Lisa Martin returns to inside centre, after playing at scrum-half in Scotland’s last match.
Hannah Smith, meanwhile, makes the switch from centre to flanker.
Sunday’s match will take place at Glasgow’s Scotstoun home (13:00 KO), where Scotland women will also play their two home Six Nations fixtures against France and England.
They open their campaign away to Wales on Friday 2 February at Parc Eirias in Colwyn Bay.
