Coach Rowland Phillips has named 14 uncapped players in a Wales Women’s squad of 34 for the five-match autumn series culminating in a game against Barbarians in Cardiff on 31 November.

Wales are away to Spain, Ireland and Scotland and home to Crawshay’s XV.

“We are already qualified for the 2021 Women’s Rugby World Cup and our key aim is to build a squad of young players,” said Phillips.

“This autumn series is a huge opportunity to do that.”

The clash with the Barbarians is part of a double-header which will see the men’s team – coached for the first time by Wayne Pivac – play a Barbarians side coached by Warren Gatland at the Principality Stadium.
