Bristol Ladies stormed to a huge 106 – 5 win over Aylesford Bulls this afternoon, with their biggest victory of the season by far. The victory takes them to third in the Premiership table, with the final game of the season next Sunday (18th Jan).
16 tries from 8 different players, combined with 13 conversions from the boot of Amber Reed gave Bristol a score line to be proud of.
Sydney Gregson, who scored four during the game, got her first within 30 seconds of kick off, with May Campbell and Tilly Vaughan Fowler adding two more within 10 minutes.
The first half progressed steadily, with Aylesford fighting hard to curb the Bristol attack. Gregson got her second on 14 minutes, followed by scores from Lucy Demaine, Amy Wilson Hardy and Devon Holt. Aylesford found a way through just before half time and got a try of their own, only for Nolli Waterman to come straight back and cross the try line twice in quick succession.
Gregson scored her third and four before being replaced by Rosie Kells on 48 minutes, leaving Amy Wilson Hardy to add three more of her own, Vaughan Folwer to get her second, with Captain Amber Reed closing the game with a fine try and conversion.
Assistant Coach Pete Reakes was thrilled with the result ‘We started well today and the girls executed the game plan perfectly. We got the ball out wide giving the backs the chance to run with it, and there were some brilliant breaks and lines being run out there today. We’re disappointed to have let Aylesford get one back, but everything we’ve been working on fell into place this afternoon and the girls were magnificent’.
