England Women beat Italy 34-0 at Esher


Four Bristol Ladies helped England return to winning ways in style last Saturday, romping to a 34-0 victory over Italy at Esher RFC.

Sally Tuson and Amber Reed started in the backline, while Kate Newton and Sophie Hemming were second half introductions from the bench.

Sally Tuson crossed for a first half try, while the accurate boot of Amber Reed kept the scoreboard ticking over.

Head Coach Gary Street said: “It was not just the win today that was important but the response of the players who came back from two defeats.

“Everyone says you learn a lot from losing and we certainly did.  In the first half everything that we worked on during the week came to fruition and that is a coaches’ dream.  The second half was tougher but the players dug deep.”

Meanwhile, Claire Molloy represented Ireland, while Rachel Taylor and Elinor Snowsill were part of the Wales side that beat Scotland.
