Rochelle Clark is set to equal Jason Leonard’s England cap record on Wednesday as England Women take on France in the first of their November internationals at the Twickenham Stoop.
The Worcester Valkyries prop has been named on the bench for the clash with the reigning Six Nations champions, and will match Leonard’s mark of 114 caps if she comes on.
