Thomas and Snowsill triumph over Scotland with Wales

Wales Women left it late to secure their first victory of this year’s competition as they defeated Scotland Women, 17-15 at Scotstoun on Friday evening.

Lleucu George showed nerves of steel to kick a last gasp conversion to secure Wales Women’s first victory of the Women’s Six Nations campaign.

It looked as if Scotland were going to be the team who were going to get off the mark in this year’s Women’s Six Nations when Chloe Rollie crashed over to give Scotland a 15-10 lead with three minutes to go.

But Siwan Lillicrap, who spilled the ball at the try-line in the first-half, made up for her earlier error to level the scores at the death.

George slotted the conversion against a strong wind to give Rowland Phillips' side their first win in this years Women's Six Nations competition. 

Wales Women prop Amy Evans said: “We knew it was going to be a tough match after our last two encounters against Scotland being so close and we’re all elated to get the win.

“This game was about putting those two elements together and we managed to score two tries and keep them out when we needed to. 

“When Scotland scored at the end, our heads dropped slightly, but Elinor Snowsill gathered us behind the posts and said ‘It takes 10 seconds to score a try, we’ve got six minutes left, and we just need belief.’

“We all knuckled down, believed in ourselves, and it was just down to pure hard word and graft in the end.”
