Loughborough Lightning 29 - Firwood Waterloo 0
A strong running performance from Loughborough Lightning secured their bonus point away win against Firwood Waterloo Ladies.
Poor defence by the home side, who are still chasing their first win in the new Premier15s league, allowed the visitors to run in five tries.
Charlotte Pearce’s return to her former club but this time as a Lightning player was rewarded with a number of tries as the fullback capitalised on breaks in the home side's defence line and overlaps created by the quick Lightings.
However, the scoreline does not reflect the true nature of the game where strong runs from the North West Premier15s team did see them threaten Loughborough’s try line but they were unable to maximize on their chances.
The second half was a much stronger performance by Firwood Waterloo ladies, with neither side scoring for the 30mins of play. However, solid breaks by the visitors allowed them to create space with the home side's defence and secure two more tries, this time converted before the final whistle.
