A great day of rugby was had today with nearly 40 female players representing our club in the Brewin Dolphin under 15 cup, under 18 shield final and finally our senior team in the post league split match vs Melrose Ladies.
The task was to continue our unbeaten run, having already won the premier league and maintain our strong defence and challenge ourselves to further develop as a team and play free flowing exciting rugby.
Wandies started well as Annabel scored a try with a powerful and jinky run through the middle of the Melrose defence. Some dynamic rucking by the forwards provided our backs with the opportunity to move the ball easily as Melrose retreated.
Jen ‘mother of 5’ Cram made a fantastic cover tackle on Lauren Harris as access was denied to Melrose towards the end of the 2nd half.
Half time score 19-0
As usual this roving reporter cannot recall in detail every try however she does remember tries from Megan, Katy Green
Machine, Annabel again, Spanish Cris, Randy Ruth and Shorty. The Wandies offload game came into force into the 2nd half with some great breaks and support play from all players on the pitch. The players played at a high intensity throughout in what was a very hot day right to the end.
Full time score 65-0
A clean sheet was kept and now the challenge is to produce a repeat performance next week away at Royal High Corstorphine in what will undoubtedly prove to be the usual grudge match.
