Turtle Power ? Nice to see more new, and returning faces.

On a great afternoon for rugby, the Peterborough Ladies traveled to Sleaford , looking to keep their unbeaten run going.
From the outset, Boro were looking to play expansive rugby. But looking to draw in the home defence, in order to make the most of the space it created. After five minutes, Michelle was able to finish off a flowing move, with the backs showing some slick handling. The hosts were growing into the game and making the Boro Ladies have to tackle. Nat was next onto the scoresheet, as she was able to sprint away to the tryline. Next to score was Steph, when from pressure in their own 22, some very good hands saw the ball reach Jess on the left wing, a step, a hand off and she was away, eventually tackled 70 metres down the pitch. Quick recycling saw the the ball reach Steph who was able to score in the right hand corner. Two more tries followed, from Sarah, showing great awareness and support running, and then Jess who was able to finish off some more quick hands to score in the corner.
Half time, Sleaford Ladies 0 Peterborough Ladies 25
Coach Rich was able to make the most of a healthy squad and allow everyone some decent game time. The second half followed the same pattern as the first, but Boro were unable to finish moves off. However, skipper Mel did score a try, before Steph scored her second, following a long period of Boro pressure in the home 22. Mel was successful with the conversion. The match finished with Boro in control, but unable to score any more points, but keeping Sleaford from scoring, due in no small part to some great last minute tackling.
Final score Sleaford Ladies 0 Peterborough Ladies 37. Our thanks to Sleaford for the game, played in the right spirit, and to our match official.
Rich chose Laura and Nat as his forward and back of the match.
The bring-along was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle related, and most did. No idea, must be an age thing.
Next week, Mellish at Fortress Fengate in the Ladies last game of 2017. Be there, it will be awesome.
ps - At least Liam had a good excuse not to run the line !!
