UWE Women’s Rugby dominant from start to finish as Exeter soundly beaten 81-5

A scintillating display at Lockleaze on Wednesday 13 November showcased the talents of many UWE players. Almost every time UWE had the ball, their superior passing and movement led to a try against an Exeter 2nd team who offered little competition.

It only took six minutes for UWE to open the scoring, with the team showing early strength down the left wing. In a first half of utter dominance, there was not much to report in terms of a fightback from Exeter.

The home team scored six before half time, a blistering start that began to quieten the number of away supporters on the balcony. The only thing UWE may have considered for improvement would be their conversions, but because the tries were mainly scored on the wing, and the wind was strong, it was difficult for the kickers.

The score was 36-0 at the interval.

The domination continued after the break with another try for UWE seconds after the whistle. As the weather worsened over the course of the half, the players turned to sliding across the try line.

Exeter didn’t get on the scoresheet until after UWE’s eleventh try, but it did spark ironic wild celebrations from the away players, bench and supporters. This was short lived, however, as UWE completed the rout with another try.

The whole team had performances of note, but a special mention for Amy Morgan who scored four tries, Paige Allen and Bianca Coltellini who got two, and Danielle Hand who scored one try, but successfully converted four others.

The final score was UWE 81-5 Exeter 2nd.
