Rachel Thompson goes over for a try for the Warriors

Wigan’s Grand Final-winning centre Rachel Thompson is one of five new faces in coach Craig Richards’ 32-strong England Women’s national performance squad.

Thompson, who was a member of England’s World Cup squad in 2017, scored a hat-trick in the Warriors’ Grand Final victory against Leeds in October, and joins four of her Wigan team-mates in the squad.

St Helens and Castleford boast the most representatives with eight each, including first call-ups for Saints winger Leah Burke and Tigers prop Grace Field.
