Red Roses fight back to beat Canada

Amber Reed started at inside-centre in the Red Roses’ 19-17 comeback victory over Canada in round two of the Women’s Super Series.


What Happened?

The opening twenty minutes saw neither team give way until Canada broke the deadlock through Tyson Beaukeboom after a series of pick and drives.

The score remained 0-5 to the Canadians until half-time and soon after the re-start former Bristol Bears Women back-rower, Gabby Senft was sin binned for a late tackle on former teammate Amber Reed. However, Canada were next to score as Paige Farries raced away from the English defence to extend her side’s lead.

With their backs up against the wall the Red Roses flexed their muscles and earned a penalty try after a strong scrum five metre out two bring themselves within one score.

Kelly Smith’s second try of the tournament saw the Red Roses take the lead for the first time in the game until Farries’ second try swung the scoreboard in the favour of the Canadians.

With five minutes left on the clock the Red Roses piled on the pressure and another dominant scrum allowed captain Sarah Hunter to dot down over the chalk to complete the comeback and secure a 19-17 victory.
