Review

Bristol started brightly in the first half, and opened the scoring with a well-executed drop goal from the boot of Elinor Snowsill. Snowsill continued her recent form, by slotting in a penalty won by Bristol after exerting pressure on the Saracens defensive line.

Saracens stepped up the pace and hit back with two first half tries, taking the score to 10 – 6 with 20 minutes played. Bristol returned the pressure, testing the home sides defence with a series of strong carries around the fringes. The continued pressure resulted in a try for Captain Sarah Hunter, before Bristol let Saracens in again – conceding the final points of the half out wide. The score at half time was 15 – 13.

After the break the home side came out strongly, claiming the next two scores, with a refreshed back three causing issues for the Bristol defence. As the game progressed Bristol continue to create breaks, but were punished for a lack of accuracy in possession. Saracens used their experience and strength to their advantage – pushing hard and keeping Bristol from staging a comeback. The final scored ended 32 – 13

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.
