Your News Woodbridge Amazons leave Ealing Jades jaded

On a bright sunny Sunday with a bone-numbing end-to-end wind in Ealing‘s favour the Amazons started strongly, the kick-off let scrum half McAlpine pass to winger Mead who scored within a minute. The Amazons forwards held the scrum convincingly to provide good ball to their backs who looked decidedly more energetic than the visitors and after a brief counter from Ealing they moved ball quickly out to full back Johnson to score their second from some poor tackling. The kick off saw Captain Stearn carry and offload for Welsh international Lou Rickard to score. Play remained central until finally the impasse was broken with a try from Stearn, followed by a run around Ealing’s winger for her to score another try before half time.

The second half started like the first with plenty of home pressure before Johnson scored in the right hand corner despite refreshed opposition. The half was decidedly more scrappy than the first with both sides conceding penalties for defensive infringements, several unforced errors and a number of injuries. Ealing suffered at the hands of a clearly fitter home team and frequently lost territory in attack as the Amazons were quick to tackle their backs in mid flow. Towards the end of the half a penalty was rewarded with a rare forwards try by Jay and moments later another quick distribution got the ball out to Rickard who scored with a defender still attached. To seal a confident performance Stearn then ran from her own 22 to score a converted try under the posts against a tiring Ealing Jades keen to get back on the coach.
