Wasps pushed hard in bonus point victory against Worcester Valkyries

Wasps scored five tries in a hard-fought victory over Worcester Valkyries to secure their third win of the season

Wasps scored five tries in a hard-fought victory over Worcester Valkyries to secure their third win of the season. In a nervy affair, it was Wasps that ceased control early in the second half to seal a 29-10 victory. The fitness of both sides shone though on a very warm summers day at Tywford Avenue.

Wasps had most of the first half territory but a high penalty count and resolute Worcester defence held the home side out for the first 30 minutes. Eventually pressure told as a strong scrum created a great attacking platform, the ball was spread wide and found Amy Wilson Hardy who used her pace to beat the last defender.

Worcester hit back shortly afterwards with their first trip into the Wasps 22m, Zoe Bennion scoring for the visitors. Claudia MacDonald ensured Wasps led at the break, as she scooped up a loose ball from the base of a ruck and dashed in from 40 metres to score her second try of the season. The score meaning Wasps had a 12-5 lead at half-time.

The hosts came out firing early in the second half with two quick scores. After quickly regaining possession from the kick-off, the ball found Katie Mason out wide, she used her strength to fend off the tackle and dot the ball down. Wasps were back on the attack shortly afterward, set piece dominance creating another solid platform for the backs. This time an inch perfect pass from midfield put Abby Dow in the corner.

With a 24-5 lead Wasps continued to apply pressure but the Worcester defence held firm. Wasps eventually sealed the win with 10 minutes left on the clock. A well-placed chip in behind the Worcester defence was pounced on by Katie Mason, before excellent handling saw Tova Derk race in for the score.

Worcester enjoyed a period of pressure late in the game, and scored just before the final whistle, Lydia Thompson bundling over from close range.

The victory is Wasps’ third of the season and sees them maintain their place-off position. The hosts have a week break before travelling to last year’s Champions and undefeated side Saracens.
