29/08/2023

Sheffield Eagles are absolutely delighted to have had five of our Women’s squad selected for England Community Lionesses duty.

In the squad of 20 named for the tour of Serbia, which will see the Lionesses face the hosts on 8th and 14th October; Claire Fisher, Sarah Palmer, Lisa Parker, Agnes Wood and Tori Thomas will be on the plane to Belgrade.

It is a massive achievement for the Women, who have been key parts of the Eagles’ debut term in the Championship during 2023.

Eagles Women Head Coach Liam Browne commented: “I'm immensely proud of the Eagles selected for the Community Lions.”

“These players have worked exceptionally hard, and this is shown in their performance on the field and as leaders.

“They fully deserve this, I'm excited to see them represent!”

A bucket collection will take place at Sunday's double-header to help raise funds for the players to go on this once-in-a-lifetime rugby league journey - please give what you can.
