Women's Rugby Super Series: England 20-18 France

3 Gloucester-Hartpury players in the squad. Very big England win with Kelly Smith scoring England's opening try...in a very tight match....the inevitable Emily Scarratt seems to have won the match single handed (reminds me of an old Jonny Wilkinson joke)

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-union/48947273

After the victory in San Diego, England are three points clear of New Zealand, who they play in their final game of the Series on Sunday.

A win would ensure Simon Middleton's team officially become the world's best side.


It is quite amazing how far Gloucester-Hartpury have progressed since they were formed in the Tyrells Professional League and looking to see more of their games being played at Kingsholm.

I watched the match last night.

French defence was very good and they counter attacked really well. Pressure told in the end and a few too many penalties swung the result England's way.

Poppy Cleal the blindside is an absolute machine, a good old fashioned 6 who tackles like crazy and carries like a bull. I'm not sure who got player of the match, maybe Emily Scarratt for scoring most of the points. Cleal does for the women's team what Hinckley does for the juniors.

Looking forward to the Eng v NZ match this weekend.

Ah the netball.....I think next week that's going to be a thread all of its own!
QPB has already called me a dirty old man for expressing what I consider to be a healthy interest in it.

Good Morning Folks - Its really encouraging to see the support for Elite Women's Sports, especially your rugby girls.
Do any of you work for a Company that might consider some sponsorship/support of the Women's programme at Gloucester/Hartpury?
