Boro Ladies get league campaign off to winning start

Boro Ladies welcomed West Norfolk Ladies to Fortress Fengate for their first league game of the season. From the outset, Boro looked to play attacking rugby. This saw the visitors having to defend, and this they did resolutely, as Nicola can testify. However, the Boro ladies showed excellent handling skills to score their first try, touched down by Nicola . The second came immediately after, when Nat caught the restart, sprinted through a non-existent gap, before passing to Abi to scorch to the tryline. The forwards were showing an aggression at the breakdown that allowed the backs to play on the front foot. Further tries, from Abi and Nat, followed as Boro Ladies played their best 35 minutes of rugby for a number of years.
Half time Peterborough Ladies 24 West Norfolk Ladies 0
The second half was not as straightforward. Heavy rain affected everyones handling skills, with the ball now 'a bar of soap', and also credit to the visitors who grew into what was their first ever league game. Further tries were scored by Canoe, Laura and another for Nat. Borough maintained enough control to see the match out.
Final Score Peterborough Ladies 41 West Norfolk Ladies 5.
Our thanks to West Norfolk for the game, played in an excellent spirit, and will get better as the season progresses, and to our match official.
Skipper Mel chose Joss and Nicola as her forward and back of the match, but that cannot have been an easy selection with all 20 Ladies in the matchday squad putting themselves forward.
Bring along was back to school. Your correspondent left as he could not remember that far back.
Next up, Buxton away on 8 October. Let Laura know if you are available to play, or support the team.
