Katy Mclean returns but Tamara Taylor remains England skipper

LEADER ... Taylor.

TAMARA Taylor will look to get England’s Women’s 6 Nations title hopes moving this weekend when she captains her country for the second time.

The Jarrovians coach was put in charge for last week’s opener at Swansea where Wales beat a new-look England 13-0.

And Taylor will lead out the whites at the Stoop on Sunday against Italy, even though World Cup-winning skipper Katy Mclean is back in the side.

The 33-year-old was handed the captain’s armband with the South Shields-born star contracted to the England Sevens squad, who are involved in a series of tournaments.

McLean is back to lend the side some vital experience at stand-off, with last week’s number 10, Ceri Lange, moving one place out to inside centre.

“We will re-group and go again against Italy,” said Taylor.

It is a match England should take two points from an Italy side lost their first game of the tournament 30-5 at home to Ireland.
