HORNETTES hosted Westbury ladies at The Nest and completed a comfortable 41-0 victory.

Hornettes started well and turned over the ball and through excellent support play from the back line, resulted in Kerrianne Williams scoring the first try of the match.

It was not long before MJ Jenkins crossed the line, with Sara Curtis kicking the conversion. Westbury pinned Hornettes back in their 22, but the hosts turned the ball over again.

Williams got the ball to fly-half Jenkins who offloaded the ball to Beth Ryall. She interlinked with Lou Watson and Ryall went over to score. Curtis slotted the ball between the posts.
