REPORT: Darlington Mowden Park 10-67 Bristol Ladies

Bristol Ladies cruise to another impressive victory in the Women's Premiership at Kingston Park. 

Fly half Meg Jones played a huge role in the first three tries, passing the ball out wide to Tilly Vaughan Fowler (sponsored by Macron) for the first.

The second came from a great kick chase and offload to Nolli Waterman, and the third off the back of a storming run, eventually passing out to Chantelle Miell.

A well-executed set piece and driving maul provided the platform for Waterman to dance over the line for her second of the afternoon, and just before half-time Sarah Hunter darted over for the bonus point try. The score at half-time was 0-29.

The second-half started in the same vein with Bristol winning a penalty from the off. A forward pass from Bristol gave DMP the put in at the scrum, but Bristol come away with the ball and Lottie Holland (sponsored by Gooch and Housego) scored.

DMP enjoyed a few moments of possession, although both Amber Reed and Carys Phillips put dents into their attacks with great turn overs.

The pressure continued to build and Poppy Cleall charged over the line from close range. Amber Reed (sponsored by Colston’s School) converted to take the score to 0–41.

Moments later Sasha Acheson scored from the half-way line, powering down the wing and adding her name to the score sheet.

DMP continued to work hard and were rewarded a try, as Zoe Aldcroft put five on the board for the home side. Kat Hobson got a second for the team ten minutes later.

Cat McNaney come onto the pitch as replacement for Waterman, and within two minutes found herself on the end of a good spell of passing play and scored, with Reed converting.

Chantelle Miell got her second after picking up a Snowsill kick, and she completed her hat trick on 78 minutes. The final scored ended 10 – 67.

Roy Davies spoke to us after the game:

“There were lots of positives on show today, and our set pieces was really solid and provided a great platform for us to play from.

"We didn’t quite manage to get to the standard of performance we would have liked and we were not as accurate at the breakdown as we could have been."
