England's women kick of their Rugby World Cup campaign against Spain today. A match shown exclusively on ITV.

Several players from the South West have made the England team and have taken to social media to express their excitement ahead of the tournament's first match.

Take a look at what they have been saying:

Bristol Rugby's Izzy Noel-Smith is going to a World Cup for the very first time and is clearly excited to be part of the squad.

Amber Reed won the World Cup back in 2014 and, after witnessing the enthralling opening ceremony, she is raring to go again.

Danielle Waterman was also part of the squad in 2014, but the joy she feels after being selected again is clear to see.

Amy Wilson-Hardy showed off her best warrior face as she prepares for her first World Cup, with England going into the tournament as defending champions.
