Lakenham Hewitt 45 v 10 Buckingham Swans


Buckingham Swans took the 3 hour bus trip across to Lakenham Hewett (Norwich)

A game where the Swans were unable to really get going.
Having gone 2 tries down fairly quickly, the Swans did manage to get themselves back into the game through Kat Cook, as she managed to power her way to the try line.
Whilst Kat was powering through, Bec Bray took an awkward fall in contact forcing her off the pitch. This had all taken place within 15 minutes.
The game then evened itself out, with both sides wrestling for possession. It would have been a much better viewing for all had the referee dealt with the breakdown as rucks got very messy and ball was extremely slow for both sides.
Lakenham Hewett took a 21 point lead into half time,
With the wind now blowing in favour of the Swans they looked to play a territorial game and play in the right areas. Lakenham defended very well, and the Swans forced the play, understandably being more than 20 points down.
The home side outpaced the travelling Swans on a couple more scenarios.
The Swans were then forced to go down to 14 players as Sophia Maynell had to leave with field with 20 minutes to play.
Katie Clark profited from a decent scrum and powered her way to the try line.

Swans forward of the match was Nic Lepper. The more game time she gets the more her confidence improves. She drove well around the fringes often putting us on the front foot.
Back of the match went to Charlotte Dennis. Charlotte has come on leaps and bounds in her first season with the swans, looked strong in the contact, and covered a lot of ground in defence.

Buckingham Swans have had a tough season, but a good one too with plenty of positivity around the camp.
