Rugby: RFL Women’s League round-up
The Challenge Cup was the main item on the agenda last week with some great Rugby League being played throughout.
There was an extremely close encounter between Wigan St Patricks and Nottingham. The home team battled their counterparts hard in the first half with the score 4-4 going into half time.
However, Wigan seemed to run out of steam in the last minutes of the match and let Nottingham find the gaps that were enough to secure the victory by the scoreline 16-4.
Try scorers for Nottingham were Amy Wilson, who helped herself to a brace, and Sarah Morecambe who scored and converted her try.
Sarah Roper knocked over the other conversion for Nottingham. Jenna Fazakerley had gone over for Wigan, early in the game to give them a surprise lead but it wasn’t to last.
In the other games in the Challenge Cup this weekend, Bradford were comfortable victors over Stanningley with the game finishing 58-6 in favour of the home team.
On the scoresheet for the rampant Bradford side were Amy Hardcastle, who continued her magnificent form this season with three tries, Ashley Prescott and Kirsty Moroney with two tries apiece, with Jamie Deon, Lisa Taylor and Rachael Twybell all adding one each.
Moroney was in great form with the boot, adding nine conversions of her own. Castleford travelled to Hunslet and produced a clinical performance away from home to win 48-18.
There was one league game played this week between Guiseley and Ovenden which was re-arranged following a previous postponement.
It was a comfortable victory for Guiseley with the final score of 44-4 highlighting the quality of their performance. Scorers for Guiseley were Nicola Heard with a hat trick of tries, Charlotte Booth and Kirsty Ryan, with two apiece and Devon Clegg who scored one.
Kimberley Clapham kicked four conversions, with Clegg adding another. Shona Hoyle scored the solitary try for Ovenden.
