First of 2 games for the last home fixture of the season
Strong start and a good game with a score that doesn't do justice
Both teams were equally matched for the first 15 minutes and play was back and forth. Bristol scored their first try after 7 mins with a sustained effort from the forwards that was strongly defended for several cycles but eventually Bristol made it over the line.
Chippenham restart and soon get a turn over ball, some great team play results in a pass out to Jess who makes run but is tackled just short of the 22, Orla secures the ball and makes a short run, rucked over and out to Poppy who scores.
Play goes back and forth fairly equal for the next few minutes but eventually Bristol put together a nice string of passes through the backs and score a try, which is converted.
Bristol are very strong from the restart, Chippenham defend hard with some fierce tackled but Bristol play very well and the forwards work away to push over the line. Converted
Into the final few minutes Chippenham play very well and it looks like try is imminent, but a loose ball is picked up by Bristol and run in from half way. Converted.
The score doesn't do justice to the game which was much more evenly matched than it appears, but Bristol were a good team playing well and the win was deserved.
