Lutterworth Ladies 4 tries

Lionesses started as though they hadn’t been away from match play over the summer, taking the game to Lutterworth, who play in a league two levels higher than the Lionesses.

Lutterworth’s natural running game and fluid attacking moves were disrupted by the Lionesses. The Lionesses, as a team, put in an outstanding performance coming close to scoring on two occasions with strong forward running lines, good passing and handling in the contact area, and fast back line moves. This continued to prove the day’s events with Lutterworth attacking well with ball in hand and the Lionesses challenging hard and counter rucking at every opportunity to win ball back for Rugby.

The second half started strongly from the Lionesses but the Lutterworth attacks didn’t falter and the whitewash was crossed on several occasions with the Lionesses being stretched across the pitch by hard hitting forwards, releasing some experienced backs to break through the tiring defence.

n The Lionesses are currently looking for more Ladies to give them depth. If you are interested in playing women’s rugby and are over 18 then please contact the Rugby Lionesses on or Facebook or call Gemma on 07788 951512.
