18 players of the Ladies 1XV played a mix of Edenbridge & East Grinstead in their first proper run out since early December.
The festival started with joint training covering Tackles, Rucking & Mauling, with 1XV John Petty lending Simon & Hannah a hand as his sister Emilia was trying rugby for her first time.
After the training, a 40min game ensued with Wells down 14-0 at HT having spent a lot of time on the attack, losing ball and points to well worked break away tries. We did cross the line, but alas Emma McGreivy learnt that marching over the line on her knees isn’t allowed….everyday’s a school day
Wells continues in fine attacking form but failing to cross the line during a tiring 2nd half.
With the result looking at 28-0, Tammy Samuel finished her first full(ish) game for the club with a Head-Down charge, scoring for our pride!!
It stayed 28-5 as Simon forgot to unload the T from the car a mile away, meaning a drop goal bounced of the post as the whistle went.
A strong showing from the Tunbridge Wells players which was only marred by not being able to convert all their time in the opposition 22 into points, but that is something the coaches will work on.
Congratulations to Fiona Horne in getting the Player of the Match nomination, given to her and her opposite number for playing their first game of full contact.
Next week we are away to Sheppey and look forward to our progression
