"The women's game works in cycles between the XVs and sevens programmes and as a result next year there will be 17 professional, full time fixed-term sevens contracts to prepare England to compete in the two big global tournaments on the horizon - the 2018 Rugby World Cup Sevens and the 2018 Commonwealth Games".
Scrum-half Nicole Cronin is the only uncapped player in the squad and she is also one of a number of players in the squad with Rugby Sevens experience.

Ireland coach Tom Tierney said the squad had been developed over the past three years with the World Cup in mind.
Ireland will take on Australia, Japan and France in their World Cup pool with only the winners guaranteed a semi-final place. "The squad fully understands the position and are focused on the World Cup in Ireland next month".
"While we are in a tough pool with Australia, Japan and our Six Nations rivals France, I am sure the players will rise to the occasion in front of their home fans".
