Your News North Women triumph at Lymm

THE North Senior Divisional Womens team got their programme back on track after a narrow open day defeat with a hard fought 34-22 win over the South West at Lymm RFC yesterday. (Sunday, March 6).

The outcome was only settled in the last minute when replacement Corrine Allmark (Waterloo Ladies) crossed for the Norths fifth try which fly-half Beth Stott (Leodiensians) converted.

Prior to that the balance of the game had fluctuated, with the visitors opening the scoring with a try by wing Lucy Demaine which Ceri Large converted. The North replied with a fine score by Leodiensians wing Ruth Laybourn, who was put into space and out paced the cover to score, Stott converting.

Penalties by Stott and Large then levelled the scores before the North went ahead again with Laybourns second try to lead 15-10 at half-time.

In the second-half the North forwards started to exert real pressure and this brought a brace of tries from Darlington Mowden Park's Sophie Spence and her team-mate Jen Edwards, Stott adding one conversion to give her side a 27-10 lead.

The South West then launched a fightback with a try from full-back Clare Simpson and followed that up with another touchdown from Juliet Short that Ceri Large converted to put the visitors within a score at 27-22.

The North, however, had the last word when Allmark crossed to seal the win and boost morale ahead of the teams final game against London & South East at Luton RFC on March 20.

Note: The RFUW Divisional Programme forms an integral part of the RFUW Player Pathway, which can see players from Under 15s upwards progress from playing club rugby to potentially representing their country. Current England stars who have qualified through the player pathway included Margaret Alphonsi and Emily Scarratt.

Players selected for the Divisional Programme have been selected by their Constituency Body and if successful they could progress to an England trial this season or qualify for the Under 18s and Under 15s RFUW National Talent Development Groups, which looks to develop the future talent of England Womens rugby
