Firwood Waterloo Ladies 22-29 Gloucester-Hartpury Women

Firwood Waterloo Ladies lose away to Gloucester-Hartpury Women as the home side scored two quick, consecutive tries in the dying minutes of the game.

The Visitors once again showed front pack dominance with great tackling and set piece play. Attacking well from the start and pulling together multiple phases that linked the forwards and the backs. This strong start led to Sarah Beckett crashing over the try line, her effort was deemed to have been held up, but Firwood Waterloo would not give up on this chance for points. A superb effort in the following 5m scrum led to a try by Claire Hutchinson, Bethany Stott adeptly slotting over the conversion, taking the Ladies into a 0-7 lead 4 minutes after the kick off.

From the restart Firwood Waterloo pressured Gloucester’s attack, causing a number of handling errors and once again the visitors ploughed forward. Firwood Waterloo’s pack gained ground with a series of rucks resulting in a well-deserved 1st Tyrell’s Premier 15s try for Chloe Garner. This 2nd try gave Gloucester-Hartpury the kick they needed, the home side upped their attack and pressured Firwood Waterloo’s defence. The pace of Gloucester’s backs broke through the gain line, setting up Rachel Lund for a try on 19 minutes. With the conversion missed the score was 5-12.

The Ladies came back strong, regaining composure and controlling the tempo of the game. Firwood Waterloo kept the ball with the forwards, pushing up the field to get Garner over the line for her second try, another conversion from Stott made the score 5-19 at half time.

Gloucester-Hartpury’s team talk did the trick, the home side came out of the break fighting. Feeding the backs more of the ball forced Firwood Waterloo to scramble in defence against some great running. Upping the pace, they scored two tries in the opening 10 minutes of the half. With one of them converted Gloucester had pulled themselves back within 2 points of the visitors making the score 17-19.

Firwood Waterloo built up possession, stringing together a series of phases in an effort to extend their lead. Looking to the reliable boot of Bethany Stott the visitors only managed to come away with 3 points making the score 17-22. Gloucester were more than capable of punishing any mistakes Firwood Waterloo made, and the visitors going down to 14 players for the end of the game allowed the home side more second half dominance, scoring two more tries and one more conversion in the last 5 minutes of play making the final score 29-22 to Gloucester-Hartpury.

Firwood Waterloo’s performance showed the strength in their squad’s depth as injury side-lined a number of key players, however, being unable to turn pressure into points once again came back to haunt them. The visitors had three tries held up in the first half which made all the difference at the final whistle. Gloucester-Hartpury come away with their fifth win of the season and despite close games and passionate performances Firwood Waterloo still searches for their elusive first win.
