Stretching the point!
On a personal note – always good to be at Hornets RFC, as one of the 1968 “re-founding fathers” I can usually bump into an old mate or two and on this occasion it was Bill Dryden. A good support group of Used-to-Bees was on hand as usual and Nanaimo, your ground, lights and clubhouse is the envy of many, including CW! Thanks for the memories.
Further news from Women’s Prems:
Manager, Chris, provides us with a synopsis from Saturday’s game Vs Nanaimo. “True to the commitment to player development, both teams had players very new to the game and adopted a rolling sub system so everyone would get plenty of playing time and this gave coaches an opportunity to review things with rookies as play continued. This was Ashley Garnett's second game and she made a few 'crushing' tackles after her conversation with Coach Jess as a classic example of this “learn and play” policy!
CW prop, Jessica Hardy, scored two tries - the second was at the end of the game, a result of some patience and serious hard work by the forward pack. Our other try scorers were Sara Einerson, (again fleet of foot, out-pacing the defence) and Brooke Bazain. Brooke also converted one try for a final score of 22 points to 15. It was good news to have Frelen Gorst (started with CW in grade 11) and Julia Folk back for another season with C W. A great team effort!”
