Match Report

Harlequins Ladies secure 27-8 victory over Wasps FC Ladies

In round 10 of Tyrrell’s Premier 15s, Wasps FC Ladies were denied victory over Harlequin’s Ladies who beat them to a 19 point victory. It was a game of two halves as the score at half time sat only with 2 points between the teams. Harlequins, who currently sit ahead of Wasps in the table, made their mark in the second half running in four tries to Wasps’ one.

Wasps FC Ladies started the game strong, securing a penalty in the first 4 minutes after Harlequins were penalised for their work at the break down. In the same threatening fashion, Wasps continued to sting hard with the likes of Nic Smith hitting hard in defence and Louise Dodd in attack, continuously breaking through Harlequins line.

The next 20 saw a ruthless fight from both teams to maintain ball- with both Sarah Mitchelson (sponsored by Yes Mortgages) and Elizabeth Crake (sponsored by XL Driving) making steals to turn over ball and put Harlequins under pressure. Wasps pushed up hard in defence and shut down key speed player, Jess Breach, however, with the penalties building up against them, Wasps were left a man down after a team yellow was awarded to Amy Cokayne.

At 36 minutes, Harlequins no. 9, Leanne Riley, found a hole and made a break for the line to score the first try of the game. With four minutes left of the first half, and Harlequins in possession, Wasps were determined not to allow Harlequins another point- Abby making sure of this, tackling Harlequins back three into touch.

The second half started quickly with both teams scoring in the first 1o minutes. Harlequins centre, Fi Pocock, made an intercept, stealing possession from Wasps to run in a try in the first 3 minutes. However, reacting quickly and determined not to let the game run away from them Wasps turned up the volume. Following a Line out on the 22 to Wasps, the ball finds the hands of Louise Dodd who broke through Harlequins defence and popped up to Tina Veale who crosses the whitewash for Wasps taking the score to 10-8.

The next 20 saw Harlequins take possession and fight to keep the game in Wasps half, Wasps maintained solid structure in defence however key ball carrier and no. 6 for Harlequins, managed to dent Wasps defence to secure a try in the 50th minute. This was shortly followed by a penalty try awarded to Harlequins off a scrum on the 5m.

The last 10 minutes of the game saw an increase in intensity from Wasps as they fought in Harlequins 22 in search of the try line. Wasps worked through multiple phases off a line out, running continuously at Harlequins defence but were unfortunately denied glory and tackled into touch in the corner. Harlequins player Abbie Scott managed to squeeze in a final try in the last play after the hosts gained a penalty from a scrum which left the score at 27-8 at full time.

A score line does not always reflect the game and despite the loss, Wasps cannot be denied the pressure and intensity they brought to game against Harlequins. Next week Wasps take on Gloucester Hartpury where they will look to take forwards the intensity and lessons learnt from today’s to secure the win.
