Head coach Tom Maher has made his first cuts from the Great Britain Senior Women’s squad at training camp, with Sarah McKay and Kristina Collins being released.
Four players have now been released since the initial squad was announced, with Stanford University’s Bonnie Samuelson and Sarah Naylor of the Sheffield Hatters being cut before training camp opened.
