ENGLAND'S women are ready to deal with a "brutal" World Cup schedule in Australia.

That is the view of Stacey White, one of ten Bulls players in Chris Chapman's squad.

They kick off the campaign tomorrow against Papua New Guinea before facing the Aussies on Sunday. The final group game against the Cook Islands takes place next Wednesday.

Loose forward White is no stranger to putting in the hard yards for the Bulls. The PE teacher travels up from Sussex every week to play for the club.

So she is prepared for the tough challenge that will face England over the next week in their bid to reach the final in Brisbane on December 2.

"The nature of this tournament is quite brutal, demanding and relentless," said White.

"All those qualities we have been training for we are going to have to put into practice – but I think it's going to be tough in the heat.

"Australia are the home nation and have been posting a lot on social media. They're going to be the ones that we want to beat."

Bulls team-mate Danika Priim believes the experience in the England ranks has helped the newer players bed in to the camp environment.

"Kirsty Moroney is on her fourth World Cup and Beth Sutcliffe, who is new to Bradford this year, has been there as well," she said.

"To have their experience settles us down and helps us treat it as just another match; another day.

"Camp environment is quite overwhelming. Every minute you're on schedule, told what to wear and where to be.

"Ultimately you don't have to think about anything else but yourself and your training.

"It is a unique situation but that's when you gel as a team. There's no time to get bored.

"We are doing a job, as loose as that might sound. When it comes to training, eating well together, even taking the time to rest and that little bit of quiet time, it is all part of it."

Bulls skipper Moroney admits they are not too familiar with the PNG Orchids.

"They are a new side and we've only seen a small bit of video footage of them in action," she said. "But they'll be an aggressive and strong side, I have no doubt about that."
