REPORT: Wasps Ladies 18-26 Bristol Ladies

Bristol Ladies completed the double over Wasps on Sunday with a 26-18 win at Twyford Avenue.

With the visitors’ England international contingent returning to the side, Bristol made a flying start as Philippa Tuttiett touched down inside ten minutes.

Tilly Vaughan-Fowler added a second before the interval, while Sue Neumann converted to put her side 3-14 ahead.

On the hour mark, Sydney Gregson rumbled over for Bristol’s third try and, although Wasps hit back with three successive tries to set up a nervy finale, Olivia Jones raced in after an intercept to confirm an impressive away day victory in the RFU Women’s Premiership.

Next Sunday, Bristol Ladies return home to face Darlington Mowden Park Sharks at the Portway Development Centre.
