It was a dry Sunday afternoon when Tewkesbury hosted our second home game against Bromsgrove.

Both teams are newly formed this season but this was Bromsgrove’s 1st game.

They were short of numbers so we lent them 3 of our players including a very experienced Ellen(Alan) Wells.

The game kicked off and instantly number 8, Rebecca Woodward ran through from outside the 22 for our 1st try.

The girls then put over a succession of tries with Olivia Rendell getting her first ever try.

The tries were aplenty with Rats and Jess also getting their fist tries.

Scrum half Gemma Green found her previous form and scored twice, Rachael Green and Shannon also scored.

Therza Peters got our third hat trick of the season.

Kayleigh Bartlett converted 4.

Final score 63-0

Although the score looks one sided, I assure you that the Bromsgrove girls did not take things lightly.

After a reshuffle in their pack they started pushing us and contesting well.

They were very close to scoring several times but only held at bay due to a very tight Tewkesbury defence.

The girls should feel very proud of their performance and I am sure they will continue to improve.

We look forward to visiting them in march for our return fixture.

All in all a great display of rugby by all.

Following the changes announced by the Government on Wednesday 9 September in relation to the ban on groups of more than six people meeting socially indoors and outdoors. Although social gatherings of more than six people will be banned in England from Monday 14 September, the Government has confirmed that organised sports and activities that have been through return to play protocols can continue. With the exception of clubs impacted by local lockdown restrictions, we remain at Stage D on the Return to Community Rugby Roadmap. The rugby community can continue to organise non-contact fixtures with other clubs using Ready4Rugby and other touch rugby activity.

Please see our Clubhouse page for more information about Track and Trace and face-coverings.
