Report: Bristol Ladies 48-0 DMP Sharks

The home side put eight tries passed DMP Sharks on Sunday to remain top of the table for the Christmas break.

Chantelle Miell (sponsored by Dambusters Rugby) hit home early, as the team got the ball out wide and the winger darted over in the corner to give the home side the lead three minutes in.

Claire Molloy got the second try of the afternoon with a stunning run through the DMP defence and beating the last defender to the line.

The third try came via a brilliant interaction between Poppy Cleall and Clara Nielson, linking up to send Meg Jones through under the posts, with Jones then converting her own efforts, taking the score to 17–0.

Darlington never really threatened the Bristol line, with the home team’s defence holding strong for 80 minutes. Abbie Parsons (sponsored by Empica PR) finished off a great team try by spotting the gap to get the ball over the line for her first ever try in Bristol colours. Jones converted taking the score to 24–0.

The second-half saw Bristol double their points tally with tries from Miell, Sarah Bern (Fifth Consultancy) and two from Amy Wilson Hardy (sponsored by Massey Cladding Solutions) – a great performance from Amy on her first run out in a Bristol shirt this season.

Bristol Ladies are back in action on the Sunday, January 8th away to Lichfield.
