Preview: Firwood Waterloo Ladies (A)
FIRWOOD WATERLOO LADIES
Head Coach: Giles Heagerty
Last Season: 9th
Firwood Waterloo Ladies had a difficult 2017/18 campaign, it’s fair to say. The Merseyside outfit finished 9th out of 10 teams in the debut season of the Tyrrells Premier 15s, winning twice all year.
Their home form left a lot to be desired with both victories coming on the road and their only points coming from draws against Darlington Mowden Park and Worcester Valkyries.
However, Waterloo’s fortune may differ this term after the introduction of a new head coach. Gile Heagerty who joins having previously coached England Under-18s and been director of rugby at Macclesfield.
Heagerty’s side will host reigning champions Saracens before heading on the road to face Richmond.
Two players to look out for are Sarah Beckett and Tysh Harper who were part of England’s Under-20 Tri-Nations Cup victory over Canada in the summer.
