Bristol Report

Bristol Ladies continued their impressive form to ease to a 42 – 3 win over Aylesford Bulls, having not conceded a try for a second successive game.

A tense first half saw both Claire Molloy and Marlie Packer break through the Bulls defence, only for ball handling errors to thwart the efforts just short of the line.

After 20 minutes, Abbie Parsons saw yellow for an offence at the breakdown, with Aylesford taking the lead through a penalty. It looked as through the score would stay this way into the half time break, however a determined Marlie Packer stormed through the Bulls back line, supported by Sarah Bern (sponsored by Fifth Consultancy) who expertly picked up the ball and dotted it over the line. Amber Reed (sponsored by Colston’s School) converted, taking the half time score to 7 – 3.

The message at half time focussed on being patient in attack and to keep doing the basics right. Aylesford brought a lot of physicality to the game, and Bristol knew they had to bring the same level of accuracy and determination in the 2nd half to see the game out.

The points started off quickly for Bristol for in the 2nd half, with Reed kicking a penalty three minutes in.

From this point Bristol took control of the territory, putting pressure on the Aylesford set piece, and patience paid off as a drive from a well-executed lineout saw Carys Phillips get the ball down – taking the score to 15 – 3.

Shortly after, Poppy Cleall slid into the corner getting her name on the score sheet and the third try of the afternoon for Bristol. As the home side grew in confidence Reed took the opportunity to kick for the corner, securing a line out 10m from the Aylesford line and Lottie Holland (sponsored by Gooch and Housego) got the ball safely down for Bristol. Reed’s conversation attempt bounced of the post.

Marlie Packer (sponsored by Jones Building Group) added to her two tries from last weekend with one of her own today, and secured the five-try bonus point for Bristol. Two more tries followed, with replacement Chantelle Miell making a stunning break to score, and England Captain Sarah Hunter showing her class by getting one of her own too.

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.
