Gordano re-grouped after half-time and spent time attacking through several phases, but were unable to penetrate the Hornettes’ defence. Good play between the forwards and backs saw Kim Sweeting score try number seven, Emma Small kicking the conversion.

From the kick-of, Hornettes again combined to drive back up the field and Charlotte Cooper-Cox took a short pass to score the eighth try. Ten minutes later following a sustained period of defence, Constable broke out to score, Small adding the extras.

Hornets scored their 10th try following a scrum which allowed Williams to run in from 15 metres.
