Report: Bristol Bears Women 10-64 Wasps Ladies

Bristol Bears Women suffered a heavy defeat at the hand of Wasps Ladies at Shaftesbury Park.

It was a tough afternoon at the office for Kim Oliver’s side as the visitors ran riot in the West Country crossing the whitewash on ten occasions with replacements Settembri and Coles scoring for the Bears.

What happened?

Wasps began the game with a bang, opening the scoring in the first minute as they won a turnover from kick-off and Burton managed to find a way over the line.

The visitors soon doubled their lead as Boatman crossed in the corner after some fine interplay between Crake and Alder.

Wasps had the wind in their sails and could seem to do no wrong. A quickfire double from Burton and then Alder saw the visitors claim the bonus-point inside 20 minutes.

Further scores from Jones, Crake and a second from Alder saw Giselle Mather’s side take a commanding 45-0 lead into the sheds at the half.

In the opening stages of the second half, the Bears started stronger and began to enjoy some longer spells of possession, however, they were met by a stern Wasps defence who kept on disrupting the ball and killing any momentum.

Wasps scored the first try of the half as replacement, Ransley managed to burrow her way over the try line after the visitors elected to keep the ball tight in the red zone.

Halfway through the second period Bristol would get themselves off the mark. Settembri scooped up a loose ball at the tail of the line out and darted over the line.

The visitors would go on to score two further tries through Muir and Boatman before the Bears finished the scoring proceedings.

Coles, who entered the game in the second half, danced her way to the try line with the clock in the red to score a consolation try for the Bears.
