Match Report

Saracens Women scored eight tries as they stormed to a convincing 52 – 18 victory away at Trailfinders Women in the Allianz PWR.

Back-to-back bonus point victories for Saracens put them top of the Premiership, while Trailfinders winless in the league, despite another encouraging performance.

Saracens flew out of the blocks in the London derby, with World Rugby Women’s Player of the Year Marlie Packer burst through the Trailfinders defence, before scrum-half Ella Wyrwas sniped over for the first points of the game.

Ellie Green added two penalties of her own in the opening exchanges, but Trailfinders found it difficult to cope with the furious pace with which Saracens started the match.

Packer was again in the thick of the action in the 12th minute, bursting over the Trailfinders gain-line and releasing winger May Campbell for their second try.

Sarries harried Trailfinders at the breakdown throughout the 80 minutes, with Zoe Harrison the next to touch down after a quick counter-attack.

After already being heavily involved in two earlier tries, Packer scored Sarries’ bonus-point try in the 27th minute, breaking off the side of a driving maul to make it 26-6.

A positive note of the first half was the Trailfinders set-piece, with the home side’s pack impressing at scrum-time.

The second-half started in similar vain to the first however, with Saracens adding another two tries in the first eight minutes after the break.

Sophie Bridger glided through the Trailfinders defence to add their fifth try, which was swiftly followed by a Jess Breach wonder try. After gathering the ball in her own 22, she went on a mazy run all the way to the Trailfinders tryline to go 40 – 6 up.

Trailfinders had more attacking threat in the second half, and were rewarded through Abby Dow’s try after a deft Ella Amory chip into the corner.

Saracens replied in almost identical fashion on the hour mark, as Sydney Gregson latched on to a superb cross field kick to extend their lead to 45 – 11.

Dow added her second of the afternoon three minutes later, striding away from Sarries defenders in a 50m race to the line, after a delightful Julia Schell offload.

But Saracens finished the afternoon off in style with their seventh try, Sophie de Goede taking the visiting side past the half-century mark.
