“We are entering a fresh, exciting period for the Scotland Women programme, with professional contracts in place, new faces to the squad and management team and a new Rugby World Cup cycle beginning,” said Easson.

“It was fantastic to get the Celtic Challenge competition under way back in January and a number of younger players have rightfully earned their spot in the squad after some impressive performances across the four games.

“We have a good mix of experienced and younger players, so it will be exciting to see what the group are capable of over the coming weeks.”
