Geraldine Thomas has been called up to the England Women’s Elite Playing Squad (EPS) for the 2011/2012 season.

The Waps hooker replaces Richmond's Emma Croker, who has withdrawn from the squad this season for personal reasons.

Thomas has previously played England Under 20s rugby and will now join the squad ahead of a three-Test series against New Zealand this autumn as well as the RBS 6 Nations.
