VIDEO: Bristol Ladies 43-10 Saracens

Bristol Ladies secure a place in the Premiership Play-Off Final at Sixways Stadium on Sunday, April 23rd.



A well earned seven try victory over Saracens Women in the sunshine at Cleve RFC put Bristol into the final for the first time in the clubs history.

Poppy Cleall (sponsored by the School of Dance) set the home side up well as she stormed over the try line within three minutes of the whistle.

Bristol continued to build on this platform, with long spells of possession and dominating territory. Hooker Clara Nielson got the next score of the game, after Sarah Bern (sponsored by Fifth Consultancy) made a line break and worked brilliantly with Phoebe Murray who put Nielson in under the posts.

Seven minutes later Irish international Claire Molloy scored as Sydney Gregson ran a beautiful line through the middle of the Saracens defence. Amber Reed (sponsored by Colston's School) slotted two conversions, taking the half-time score to 19-0.

The second-half started in a similar vein to the first, with Molloy scoring from a driving maul two minutes in.

Kayleigh Armstrong (sponsored by Maidenhead Aquatics) scored her first try in Bristol colours this afternoon, as she showed her strength to power over the line.

Cleall got her second of the afternoon on 60 minutes, with Chantelle Miell taking the try total to seven for Bristol.  Saracens showed good heart and resilience to get two tries of their own before the end of the afternoon. Reed added two more conversions and the final score ended 43-10 to Bristol.

The final will take place at 3pm on Sunday, April 23rd at Sixways Stadium in Worcester.
