Friendly victory

Hornettes ladies travelled to Gordano for a friendly fixture and came away with a 15-5 victory.

HORNETTES ladies rugby team travelled the short distance up the M5 to Gordano to take on the newly-formed Gordano ladies in a friendly.

Conditions were not great and for the first 10 minutes of the game neither side made much impact with plenty of knock-ons and panic passing.

Hornets began to focus on their game and with great interplay by forwards and backs, Kerianne Williams picked up from a ruck and sprinted around the defence to score just wide of the posts. Emma Small missed the conversion.

The inexperience of some of the Gordano players began to show and Hornettes took advantage and began to dominate in the scrums and line-outs.
