Report: Saracens Women 29–12 Bristol Ladies

Kim Oliver’s side slipped to their third successive defeat against unbeaten Saracens at the Allianz Stadium on Saturday. 

Bristol Ladies took a slender two-point lead into the half-time break [5-7], thanks to a try from Lucy Atwood which was converted by Reed.

Saracens were the more ruthless and clinical side in the second half, scoring four tries before Lagi Tuima scored in the closing stages of the game.

What Happened? 

Bristol Ladies gave their unbeaten opponents their biggest test if the season thus far. From the first whistle, it was evident that both sides were not going to back down.

After Poppy Cleall had been sin-binned for Saracens, Lucy Attwood opened the scoring for the visitors, while Reed converted.

Saracens got on the board midway through the first half as hooker Kat Evans found herself on the end of an overlap to get over the line.

The start of the second half saw Saracens come out of the blocks faster than Bristol, scoring twice in the opening ten minutes of the half through prop El Perry as well as winger Lottie Clapp, who scored a smart counter attacking try. 

Saracens added a further two tries through former Bristol Ladies players Marlie Packer and Poppy Cleall who both finished from short range.

Tuima’s score in the final stages meant the game finished Saracens Women 29-12 Bristol Ladies. Attention now turns to next week’s fixture against Loughborough Lightening at home.
