Hammersmith & Fulham arrived at Woodbridge the underdogs - lying last in the league with the Amazons second. An expectant home crowd quickly became aware though that this was not going to be a walk over as the visitors took play straight to their host’s 22. The first scrums went the Hammer's way as the Amazons pack, normally reliable, were slow to fire up. Play remained in the host's end before Captain ‘EJ’ Stearn and Sam Burton broke out on the right for Emma ‘Magic’ Johnson to score after 10 minutes. The Londoners quickly pinned the Amazons back in their half, using their solid forwards and effective defence to leave the Amazons battling to find any space to make progress. Indeed H&F very nearly scored after their forwards spun it out to their dangerous winger Althea Binfor requiring a try-saving tackle from Johnson.

The second half saw the Amazons pack take many against the head and their runners tried first the blind side and then out wide until Nick Pitman at 10 switched sides and the three-quarters found the overlap for EJ to score. The visitors again recovered fast and dictated the flow of the game, disrupting and interfering the Amazons back play and tempting them to run at them rather than around them until Binfor beat wing and full back to score on 30mins, converted by Tauchert. Three minutes later they did it again, this time unconverted but enough for the final whistle to raise a deafening cheer from a clearly exhilarated Hammersmith & Fulham.
