Match Report: Saracens Women Dev XV 75-7 Worcester Valkyries Dev XV


Saracens Women Development Team continued their winning run with a 75-7 home win against Worcester Valkyries at Mill Hill RFC on Saturday 9 March.

The home team went into the weekend’s match full of confidence after a 44-24 away win over Wasps Ladies the week before.

There were a number of changes to the starting XV from that match, including the return of England prop Ellena Perry from injury.

Saracens though started as they meant to go one with two tries in the opening 10 minutes through Sydney Gregson and Georgie Lingham, with Rowan White converting the latter.

In total there were eight tries for Saracens in the first half with Gregson adding a second try to her tally and Emma Swords, Kat Robinson (2), Nina Vistisen and Chantelle Miell crossing the whitewash.

Rowan White’s three conversions meant that the half-time score was 46-0 in Saracens’ favour.

Five more tries followed in the second half for Saracens as Jeani Layola, Cara Wardle (2), Libby Lockwood and Miell got over the try line.

A conversion apiece to Lingham and White ensured that Saracens had their second highest score of the season.
