Your News Deepings Ladies 15 - Harlow Ladies 15

Harlow travelled to Deeping for this their second league game. The weather was considerably much more suited to the game of rugby than the last outing as the sun had gone and the rain had given the turf a good soaking.

Harlow brought a team of 17 and as such the game was played with 15 either side. Deeping also had a full squad with a massive 5 subs on the bench. The game started well for Harlow as they displayed an impressive defensive line at rucks, only committing the bare minimum of players, with quick recycling. They took no time in getting the ball out to their backs which had considerable pace. Thankfully the Harlow backs were stopped by some solid hard tackling which resulted in Deeping winning the ball. A period of excellent play by Deeping lead to the first try of the game by winger Jess Logan.

After the re start there was more positive play from the Devils and the pressure from the forwards took them once again close to the Harlow 22. A line out ball cleared up by the Deeping ladies resulted in a well deserved second Deeping try from pack leader, Mary Glenwright.

Deepings coach Angie Charity started the second half and proved that she hasn't lost her touch as she chased the ball from the kick off to tackle the Harlow receiver in her own 22.

The home sides backs showed they have good hands and linkages to exploit Harlow's defensive line which was nowhere near as impressive in the second half.

After a period of unrest Harlow piled on the pressure which proved too much and resulted in their first try. The game restarted with Deeping playing well and gained ground by hard yards and backs linking with forwards off quick ruck ball. This resulted in Deepings third try by the hard working scrum half Sadie Sharman in the last 10 minutes of the game.

Harlow came back right from the kick off and stole possession off Deeping to run in their second try. In the last minutes of the game Harlow's pace out wide once again resulted in them scoring a try resulting in the 15-15 draw.

This was a positive performance by Deeping who were unlucky to let in the last try. The scrums were strong throughout the game as were the lineouts. Forward player of the match went to Gemma Hempstead with Kate Tyler as back of the match. Noticeable performances also came from Sam Scott-Mance and Becks Renshaw on her debut performance for Deeping.
