The Amazons welcomed unbeaten Wimbledon to a cold, bright and breezy Woodbridge hoping to find their form and avenge the away game defeat. The visitors started aggressively driving into the home 22 only to get penalised twice. The Amazons sensed an opportunity and their forwards drove hard over halfway, denied Wimbledonís backs sustained possession and pinned them back for the first quarter. From a lost penalty the íDons missed touch and Rickard ran around the drawn defence and scored a converted try. The League leaders were clearly shaken and retaliated with several phases in the Amazons half. Tremendous defence, kicking to clear and follow-up tackling enabled the Amazons to hold off the continued assault and lead into half time.

The second period saw more Amazon mistakes but Wimbledon incapable of exploiting them. The wind made line-out ball and kicking a lottery for both sides and so it was left to the forwards to make the ground. Woodbridge defended well in their own 22 for prolonged periods but still looked the more dangerous, launching attacks from deep. Eventually, against the run of play, Capt EJ Stearnís dogged determination paid off and she ran from her own 10m through confused defence to score on 20mins. Ten minutes later Rickard carried to the halfway and off-loaded in the tackle to Stearn who carried to score and ruin Wimbledonís unbeaten run with an unmatched 17 points
