WORCESTER Valkyries captain Lark Davies has been called up to England women’s training squad in Bisham Abbey this weekend.

The hooker is one of 43 players who will meet for three days before head coach Simon Middleton selects a smaller squad for training games against South Africa next Wednesday and Sunday at Aldershot and Fleet.

Davies captained Valkyries as they fell 48-12 at Richmond in the Tyrrells Premier 15s last weekend.

With Worcester 21-0 down, young wing Brooke Clarke scored a fine solo try in the first half and she added a second after the break with Zoe Bennion converting.
