On this surprisingly sunny Wednesday in October we achieved our first win of the season; hurrah!! What's even better than that? We beat last year's league winners! Supported by our fellow team members and alumni, (Tara you babe), who made their way down to Berrylands despite being injured (we love you all), the team showed some of the greatest teamwork to date, with us winning an incredibly intense match!
The game started off in our favour, with a strong push up against our competitors and an impressive defensive line, causing us to dominate the pitch for the first half of the game. Scrums stayed strong throughout the game, with us winning all of ours and even stealing theirs! Sussex increased the pressure in the second half and really gave us a run for our money, making this one of the most physical games we've played. However the girls showed immense perseverance with the forwards making strong tackles and the backs creating some great lines and scoring our winning try!
In the last quarter of the game we held our own and stuck to the set plays despite Sussex's determination to score, and we have never been more grateful to hear a whistle blow! Phew! One of our hardest games to date, but we put up a fight and the win was one of the sweetest we've tasted. A big thank you to the Sussex team for a great game and for the amazing photographs of all of us in action!
