ENGLAND Women kick off their six nations campaign at Woollams on Saturday when they take on Wales. The showpiece occasion is expected to draw a big crowd to the home of Old Albanian RFC and the match starts at 5.30pm. Local rugby fans should arrive early because there will also be a match between two teams of Under 14's Girls from the County, made up from Hertfordshire sides including OAs. England Women's head coach, Geoff Richards, is looking forward to the event. He said: "I am excited that our home ground this season will be at Old Albanians. It is a fabulous venue, with a great surface and good facilities. We played there before against South Africa so it is a good hunting ground for us. Following the Wales game England face Spain, Scotland and France before they return home to take on Ireland at Woollams on March 18. For ticket details email tickets@oarugby.com
