Report: Firwood Waterloo 0-14 Bristol Bears Women

Bristol Bears Women made it back-to-back Tyrrell’s Premier 15s wins with a 14-0 victory on the road over Firwood Waterloo Women on Saturday afternoon. 

Kim Oliver’s side travelled to the Merseyside club for their first fixture of 2019 and came away with the goods thanks to a try in each half from Cat McNaney and Lucy Attwood. 


What Happened?

McNaney opened the scoring for the travelling side after the Bristol Bears Women turned defence into attack with an interception. The Bears then showed great patience to go through the phases and the allusive full-back crossed the chalk to put her side 5-0 up, which was soon made 7-0 with a conversion from the boot of Attwood. 

The visitors enjoyed the lion’s share of possession and territory for the remainder on the half but were left frustrated as they couldn’t quite find the decisive pass to cross the whitewash. 

It wasn’t until midway through the second period that the Bears extended their lead and they did so through none other than Lucy Attwood. 

The centre picked up where she left off in 2018 as she set off on a trademark run, stepping her way past multiple defenders before sliding over the whitewash and converting her own score. 

Bristol Bears Women pressed for another score to seal the game but they were unsuccessful, however, they managed to shut out the hosts for the remainder of the game and secure victory.
