Review

The long journey to Aylesford saw Worcester Ladies collecting their first winning bonus point of the season with a hard earned 5-43 victory. Worcester, Premiership Champions two seasons ago posted 70 points on their last visit but so far this season had only managed a draw and a loss.

Worcester started brightly, Aylesford allowing their pacey back line too much space, but the Bulls defended. 9 minutes in, Worcester were gifted a penalty in front of the posts, which was converted by their 12 Megan Goddard and minutes later, the Worcester speedster Lydia Thompson ran in a try.

The visitors continued to apply pressure and an excellent kick ahead from Steph Johnston saw Lydia Thompson out sprint the defence to score in the corner.

Worcester’s opening onslaught continued for seventeen minutes but despite pinning the home side in their own half, found Ayesford back in the game when Catherine Spencer executed a text book number 8 pick up at the scrum too drive over. The former England captain’s score gave the home side confidence. Half time arrived with the score remaining 5-8.

The second half saw Worcester drive home their superiority, fatigue seemed to set in and the Bulls penalty count grew, this gifted Worcester the best of the opportunities, which they happily took. Tries came from Samantha Bree, Sian Williams, Steph Johnston (2) and Lisa Campbell, with Megan Goddard in immaculate form with the boot taking all the extras. Final score 5-43.

About the Author:

My name is John ‘Max’ Maxwell and I am the MD of RuckinRugby, a website design and hosting company focused on all things Rugby. Rugby is a huge part of my life and after meeting Catherine Spencer some years ago, I became interested in the women’s game at the highest level.

The World Champion team of 2014 were something very special and I immediately became aware of how important our domestic game would become in maintaining the sort of national side that I, and many others love to watch. This inspired me to do whatever I can to promote Women’s Elite Rugby in England.
