GiantsWRL trio Pippa Curley, Lois Naidole and Abbie Millward earn call ups to the England Student Squad
All 3 players are among the squad of 22, after a record 184 players attended trials delivered by the England Community Lions earlier this year.

Curley is a familiar face returning for 2023, having helped lift the Presidents Cup in 2022, defeating Great Britain Teachers and the UK Armed Forces.

The RFL’s Conor Meese, a co-selector alongside management team colleagues and coaches, says:
“A huge congratulations to everyone who has been selected following the recent trials. It’s been really challenging for us as staff and coaches to select the final squad given the number and ability of the players who attended the trials. This shows the growth within the women’s game and in particular the appetite within the educational settings.

All 3 players could represent England Students in the following fixtures:

  • 10th May, GB Teachers England Students, venue: Lock Lane & K.O 19:00hrs
  • 31st May, England Students v UK Armed Forces, venue: Orrell St James, Wigan & K.O 19:00hrs
