Naomi Thomas has been forced out of the Wales side through injury.
Wales Women have been forced into a late change for the Six Nations clash against England with centre Naomi Thomas pulling out with a knee injury.
As a result, Ceri Redman will receive an early birthday present when she steps out at Esher RFC tomorrow as Thomas's replacement. The UWIC centre will be making her international debut just one day before her 21st birthday.
With Redman moving up from the replacements bench, experienced winger Louise Rickard now comes into the squad as her replacement.
Originally from Bala, Redman has had to overcome a serious knee injury to force her way into the side and admits facing England on her debut is a huge task.
"I'm quite excited about playing now. When I first heard I might be playing I was a bit nervous, and thought 'Oh my god,' but now I'm really looking forward to it. I couldn't have asked for a tougher game to get my first cap," said Redman.

Twelve young people have been selected to follow a one year WRU Coach Core apprenticeship programme. Coach Core was set up by the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry as part of the Olympics legacy in 2012 and the Duke of Cambridge was on hand to meet the apprentices on their first day in the job. The programme has been funded by the Hunter Foundation.
The WRU has launched a campaign to create a long term legacy for Welsh club rugby by highlighting the advantages of volunteering. Rhian Edwards, a volunteer at Seven Sisters, has enjoyed many benefits of her volunteering at a grassroots rugby club including being part of the Rugby World Cup volunteer workforce after being nominated by the WRU - and the WRU is asking for more people to develop their 'Welsh rugby roots'.
