Red Roses To Return To Twickenham In 2024 Women's Six Nations
Twickenham Stadium will once again play host to a standalone Red Roses fixture in the 2024 Women's Six Nations.
John Mitchell's side will welcome Ireland to HQ in Round 4 of
the Championship on Saturday, 20 April (KO 14:15), following on
from last season's historic meeting with France at the home of
A crowd of 58,498 were in attendance for the first ever standalone Red Roses match at the venue as England Women clinched the Grand Slam with a 38-33 victory.
England and Saracens captain Marlie Packer said: "It is every
player's dream to play on the biggest stages in the biggest
matches; to have been part of the first standalone Red Roses match
in front of nearly 60,000 fans was really special.
"We don't want it to be a one off; we want to grow towards selling out matches at Twickenham. We'll keep striving to break records, play in front of record-breaking crowds and hosting Ireland will be another occasion we will relish."
The Red Roses are also heading back to Ashton Gate to play Wales in Round 2 on Saturday, 30 March (KO 16:45).
On their last visit to the Bristol venue ahead of the 2021 Rugby World Cup, England crossed for 11 tries against their visitors from across the Severn Bridge with Loughborough Lightning's Helena Rowland crossing for a hat-trick.
Bristol Bears back Holly Aitchison was also in the backline that night and is relishing an international return to the city she now calls home.
"Ashton Gate is an amazing place to play rugby and we're all excited to be heading back there with the Red Roses," she said.
"There is a great appetite for women's rugby in the South West, something I've learned even more so since moving to Bears. The fans are brilliant and always turnout in their numbers for Red Roses matches across the West Country and we have no doubt that we'll be heavily backed once again against Wales."
Ashton Gate Venue Director, Jenny Hutchinson, said: "After the success of our first international women's rugby match at Ashton Gate last year, we are delighted to be hosting the Red Roses and Wales again for another blockbuster Anglo-Welsh clash in Bristol.
"The opportunity to stage our first Women's Six Nations match is an exciting occasion for Ashton Gate and for the city. We attracted an 11,600-strong crowd for England's record-equalling 25th Test win over Wales the last time they visited and with the huge appetite for the women's game in Bristol, we look forward to welcoming another huge crowd."
