Henley Hawks Women 41, Bristol Ladies 2nds 0
HENLEY made it back-to-back Women’s Championship South Division 1 wins with victory against Bristol 2nds.
The sun drenched Dry Leas on Sunday meant a firm track and opportunity to use the width of the main pitch.
The hosts got off a good start with Wheeler crossing wide after just two minutes. Despite the good ball retention and territory Bristol’s defence kept the Hawks at bay.
It was another 20 minutes before the line was breached. A series of quick rucks allowed Henley to stretch the Bristol defence for fellow back rower Simpson to squeeze in at the opposite corner.
