RUGBY UNION: For the third Sunday in a row, tired bodies were put to the test against a determined and irrepressible side.
And once again West Norfolk Ladies came out victorious by an emphatic margin, romping home 65–0 against Norwich Medics at Lakenham Hewitt.
Wests carried a depleted front row due to injuries and illness, however the Medics had an inexperienced pack and it was determined that the scrums would be uncontested.
Pitch conditions were far from ideal – areas of the pitch at best slippery and at worst a bog, which severely limited Wests’ backs’ ability to run the ball through to the try line.
Mary Hegarty ran in the first try but resolute Medics retaliated, however, awesome tackling and physical play from the forwards resulted in the ball being turned from a threat five metres from Wests’ try line, into the next try.
The Medics continued to press but it was in vain as Wests took their chances to gather a 36-0 half-time advantage.
The second half saw Wests score a further 29 points through continued pressure.
Forward of the match Nerea Fernández Rodríguez was among the scorers, despite playing out of her usual position.
Scrum-half Amber Wadlow was back of the match.
Wests’ next fixture is at home to St Neots on March 19, 2pm.
Training is on Wednesdays from 7pm at Gatehouse Lane, North Wootton. All ages from 12 welcome.
