Bonner makes England Women U18s debut

Reneeqa Bonner made her debut for England Women U18 against France the final match of the inaugural Women’s Six Nations festival.

Women's U18 Six Nations
England 10-72 France

England were in action in the day’s finale taking on a France team who beat them 29-7 just four days previously.

Once again, France looked well drilled from the off and were first to get on the scoreboard after just eight minutes when scrum-half Maewenn Magnabal dotted down. A second quickly followed after an England handling error gave Lina Tuy a simple try to make it 10-0.

The third score of the half was the pick of the bunch with a flowing France attack ending with some clever quick hands, giving Marilou Le Calvez the chance to dot down.

Amalia Bazola added a fourth try not long after, but England did finally have something to short about just before half-time.

A clever up-and-under was well read by Katie Shillaker who gathered superbly and scored to narrow the gap.

But a brilliant burst from Suliana Sivi restored France’s advantage just after the break with a clever sidestep and acceleration to get away from the England defence.

Both sides exchanged further scores with Molly Luthayi and Mariam Niakate both dotting down, before a French flurry in the closing stages.

Oyanna Capon and Bazola’s second, Aminata Niakate, another from Sivi took their side up to ten tries in total, before Maya Grat went over in the corner.

And there was still for another from Grat to get the final word, wrapping up the win by a score of 72-10 to France.
