Wasps team to face Valkyries

  • +1

Wasps FC Ladies are set to face Worcester Valkyries in penultimate round of Tyrrells Premier 15s

Wasps FC Ladies last took to the field against Bristol Ladies in a nail biting fixture. With the score board left empty at the half time whistle, with both teams stuck at gridlock to each other’s defence- it was down to the second half to decide the game. Wasps FC Ladies just topped the South West team scoring four tries against their two to take the win.

Rocky Clarke, Abby Dow, Anna Glyn Davies and Danielle Waterman all edged themselves over the white wash to set Wasps ahead by 14 points in the 26-12 victory. Waterman’s try, testimony to her skill, was the show stopper of the match, a “moment of genius” as described by DoR Giselle Mather.

After adverse weather and frozen pitches saw their game against Firwood Waterloo postponed, the swarm are eager to return to the pitch. A slight change in the back line this week with Tina Veale at fullback and captain Kate Alder in at 10. Your pack sees a new front row combination with Kany Afilaka, Hannah West and Claire Purdy leading the forwards.

The last encounter against old rivals Worcester Valkyries saw Wasps FC Ladies seal a win with a 46 point lead. On home turf, they will be looking for a repeat.
