Report: DMP Sharks 17-10 Bristol Bears Women

Bristol Bears Women crossed for a score in each half but couldn’t prevent DMP from fighting back to win 17- 10 at the Motorpoint Arena.

What happened?

After a cagey opening to the first half it would be the visitors to strike first. The forward pack flexed their muscles at the set-piece and won a line-out close the DMP line, setting up a destructive rolling maul that would see Ellie Mulhearn dot down over the chalk for her second score in three games.

Both sides struggled to get a foothold in the game as the first half progressed and neither side would put any further points on the board, which would see the Bears go into the sheds 5-0 to the good.

As the second half progressed the Bears would manage to cross for a further score through live wire Keira Bevan, who typically spotted a gap at the breakdown to dart through extend her side's lead. 

However, the hosts clawed their way back in to the game during the second forty and managed to cross the whitewash on three occasion to come back and a claim a 17-10 victory at the Motorpoint Arena.
