Valladolid blog: Day 6: Rest for Test

Ahead of today's friendly against Spain, the squad have been involved in final preparations for the fixture, as second row Emma Wassell [below] relates:

"Today was a much lighter day with our captain's run being our only session this morning.

"We arrived at the pitch to some blustery conditions which was a good test to put our shape into action. The squad looking sharp with a positive attitude going into the game tomorrow.

"During the afternoon we were invited to go and watch Valladolid play a Romanian Saracens team in the European Challenge Cup qualifiers and we were hosted there by the VRAC ladies' rugby team.

"Conditions were cold and windy with the Romanian side taking the win.

"Finally a good feed this evening and an early bed before an early rise as the excitement builds for tomorrow's game!"
