Gloucester-Hartpury give Buckingham Swans 99 problems

Gloucester-Hartpury give Buckingham Swans 99 problems

Gloucester-Hartpury’s women’s team nearly racked up back to back centuries as they look to keep the pressure on their closest rivals Worcester ahead of their top-of-the-table showdown.

Susie Appleby’s team more than doubled Buckingham Swans points against tally as they were runaway 99-5 winners in their most recent Women’s Championship Midlands 2 clash.

The victory saw the Gloucester-Hartpury ladies maintain their 100% league start with five bonus point wins from five games, not far from matching Hartpury RFC’s own eight game bonus point opening streak in National League One this season.

There were hat tricks for Mary-Ann Gittings and Leah Carey while braces from Millie Wallis, Annouska Gregovich and Beth Hicks as well as scored from Lauren Graham, Chloe Limbrick and Courtney Preyer saw the women run in 15 tries and 12 conversions in their 99 point haul. 

Appleby said: “I’m really pleased with the continuity that the team are showing and how we’re developing. We have a lot of young players improving every week and it’s pleasing to see.

“Buckingham are not a bad side at all and for us to go out without [Welsh internationals] Hannah Jones and Rebecca de Filippo as well as Gemma Sharples it was a really mature performance from everyone involved.”

Appleby’s squad will now turn their attention to the second round of their cup before fixing their sights on second placed Worcester who currently sit four points behind them in the table.
