Supermarine Ladies kept hot on the heels of league leaders Trojans with victory against Rosslyn Park Ladies.

Both teams battled hard against the strong winds at Supermarine which proved to be a real leveller in the match.

Rosslyn Park Ladies had the wind in their favour in the first half but Supermarine defended well and eventually grabbed the first score of the match.

After Nat Williams had kept the ball in play, some quick passing and hard tackling led to Claire Chard touching down for the first try.

With the wind in their favour in the second half, Supermarine scored two tries in quick succession.

First, flanker Sam Gooch went over the Rosslyn Park whitewash before centre Harriet Marshall added another score.

An injury to Rosslyn’s prop with 20 minutes remaining caused both sides to play uncontested scrums for the rest of the match.

Supermarine captain Claire Wilson scored another try for the hosts with Williams adding the conversion.

Coach Jamie Barrett described his side’s second-half performance as “an exhibition of rugby”.

Supermarine return to action on December 13th when they travel to Wimbledon Ladies.
