Eton Manor Women



Ladies XV

Match Report

On Sunday 21st November, Thamesians Women set off for their first away game of the season. The team got stuck in with enthusiasm and energy, ready for what was going to be a physically demanding game against an unknown opposition. 

Eton Manor Ladies proved physical and quick to disrupt getting a lead early on. After impressive phase play, Emily Ward fought her way through the defence and put the first points on the board for Ts. With solid defence from Ts, Eton Manor had no choice but to play wide and the points crept up. Before the end of the first half, Ts newbie, Amber Sheppard made an unforgettable run the length of the pitch to score under the posts. With a conversion by Jemma Smith, Ts were buzzing and ready for more. 

Unfortunately, it was not to be. With Ts lacking troops from the start and with too many injuries, Eton Manor had the run of the second half. The game was called at 55 minutes with a final score of 34-12. 

Although disappointed, the score didn’t dampen anyone's spirits. With wonderful hosts, Ts took the opportunity to celebrate rugby, team and milestones. Turning 18 last week, Lia Leonard made an outstanding debut into woman’s rugby, with Jemma Smith named Forward of the Match and Jess Kieser named Back of the Match.
