MANON JOHNES

MAD DOG.

Abbie Ward (JMPUK)

Ward put in a colossal performance in her first outing in Bear Country as the dynamic lock lead the charts in dominant carries (5/8 - 63%) across the  80 minutes. 

Phoebe Murray (JMPUK)

Murray opened the scoring at Shaftesbury Park last weekend with a scything run through the Chiefs defence and she topped the clean breaks stat charts with 3. 


Three players to watch:

Zoe Aldcroft

The powerful lock has been named in the Cherry Whites second row and will go head-to-head with her Red Roses teammate Abbie Ward in the pack. 

Natasha Hunt 

Gloucester-Hartpury's skipper will look to drive her powerful pack forward whilst providing a threat around the fringes of the breakdown. 

Kelly Smith

Smith is an experienced operator in the wide channels with a set of wheels and she has enjoyed success in the past against the Bears.
