RBS Women'S Leagues Round-Up

More favourable weather this weekend saw a number of teams in action yesterday (Sunday 21 October) in the RBS Women's leagues.

In RBS Women’s Premier Division B, Cartha Queens Park stay at the top of the table after a 15-0 away win over Dundee University.

Says Cartha’s Sindy Tsang: “It was hard going for both teams. We went into the game knowing that the scoreline would be closer in this second meeting of the season as Dundee Uni would step up their game after they had had more training sessions.

We played most of the game in their half of the pitch, but Dundee's defence was strong so we had to work hard as a team and mix up our game plan.

The three unconverted Cartha tries came from Joan Hutchison, Liz Tiller and Bex Mains. There were also good runs from Glasgow University's Jenni Wallace and Natalie Kennett who came along to help out with the numbers.

Adds Cindy: “Recognition also has to be given to the referee, Rob Lambert, who was very fair in applying the new IRB laws."

The other Premier B game saw Watsonians overcome Aberdeenshire Quines 67-5 – Stirling County had a bye. Next week Cartha host Watsonians and Stirling are away to Quines.

In RBS Premier A, Hillhead / Jordanhill defeated Melrose 60-0. The try scorers included Amanda Moore (3), Megan Gaffney (2), Hannah Smith (2) and Mairi and Jemma Forsyth. The epic score of the game however, was a try from prop Heather Lockhart who ran in her five-pointer from the halfway line.

In the division’s other game, RHC Cougars were just edged, 15-20, by Murrayfield Wanderers. That means the Hill Jills currently top the table with four out of four wins. Next Sunday, Wanderers host Melrose and Hillhead / Jordanhill visit RHC.

There were no games this weekend in Premier C and the one match in National League, between Oban Lorne and Stewarty, was postponed.
