VIDEO: Bristol Ladies 48-7 Wasps Ladies

Eight tries from Bristol earned them a bonus point win, finishing the regular season on 60 points and top of the table.

Sunday's bonus point victory over Wasps Ladies set up a home play-off semi-final against Saracens Women on Sunday, April 9th and the focus now turns to the Senior Plate final next weekend, and progressing through the play offs.

The home side put five tries passed Wasps in the first-half, with the forwards showing their dominance. Returning international Izzy Noel Smith (sponsored by Prior Park Schools) set up the first try of the afternoon, breaking through several Wasps tackles to send Clara Nielson over the try line on eight minutes.

Four minutes later Poppy Cleall (sponsored by The School of Dance) ran a beautiful line and dotted the ball down under the posts. 

Cat McNaney scored a phenomenal solo try moments later, stealing the ball from the opposition mid tackle and running the length of the pitch to get the third of the afternoon. A well executed scrum resulted in Nielson getting her second of the game, whilst a strong ball carry and break almost saw Kayleigh Armstrong (sponsored by Maidenhead Aquatics) score, however unselfishly she passed the ball onto Sarah Bern (sponsored by Fifth Consultancy) to secure the points for the home side. Two conversions from the boot of Lucy Attwood took the half-time score to 29-0.

Wasps reset at half-time, and scored minutes into the second-half as Bristol were slow out of the blocks after the break. However, this sparked the home side back into action, and Bern showed her pace as she received a well timed offload from Captain Buckland-Hurry to get her second of the afternoon. 

Bern then secured her hat-trick with the last play of the game to score directly under the posts. Cleall also added a second try to her tally on 65 minutes. Sarah Graham took over kicking duties during the second half, with two successful conversions ending the game on 48-7. 

Eight tries from Bristol earned them a bonus point win, finishing the regular season on 60 points and top of the table. Lichfield, who have always been hot on our heels all season, finished second on 59 points after their win over Richmond on Saturday.

The play-off semi-finals are now set, with Bristol facing Saracens, and Lichfield facing Aylesford Bulls - both games due to be played on the Sunday, April 9th (KO 2:45pm).
