Fantastic display of girls rugby today with the TWRFC & Sevenoaks U15 girls, the #A21, playing Dartfordians in their league match at Sevenoaks in perfect rugby conditions.
A massively strong start saw #A21 new girl Mary score out wide from outside centre, after some strong forward play and good backs hands.
Same again a few minutes later with winger Molly doing similar.
Then Scrum-Half Faith scored her first try putting one between the posts after a phased attack. Iona added the two.
The half finished with a Darts counter attack making it 17-5.
The second half started with more swaps of players giving everyone as fair a crack as we could. Dart took great advantage of this and ran in three tries, but only after FlyHalf Iona planted one between the posts after a run from her own 10m line….and added her own two.
With Darts getting close, a concerted effort by tired bodies drove the Darts back in a ruck & maul festival ending with Oaks No8 Hannah going over.
The #A21 kept the pressure up until the last blow of the whistle, finishing 29-20.
Special mentions to Molly who stormed back after 5 weeks injury layoff, and Rosie who played her first game and fitted in perfectly.
Also welcome back Maddie who played a stormer on the wing, and stepped into the second row to help out in the last 5mins and “proper loved it”,
The win rounded off Head Coach Simon’s birthday weekend (we won’t say how old), also making up for Saturdays World Cup disappointment. The squad also took time to celebrate with tomorrow’s birthday girl Nicola.
Tries: TW Mary Smith, Molly Bignell, Faith Adams +Iona Con, Iona Woodhouse +Con & Oaks Hannah Walton.
Other TW girls: Nicola Perry, Rosie Hewitt (new), Heather Croker, Maddie Steger, Belle Raine (VC), Kirsty Jones, Bella Sullivan, Daisy Glasheen
