Women's Rugby: Saracens involved in dramatic comeback win to maintain perfect record alongside Harlequins

Saracens Women

Last year's finalists kept their 100% starts intact as teams across the league have begun to build momentum.

Bristol Bears Women and Wasps Ladies returned to winning ways, and Richmond Women picked up their first victory of the season. Worcester Warriors Women and Waterloo Ladies continue to struggle as Loughborough Lightning fell to a narrow second defeat of the 2019/20 season. 

Firwood Waterloo Ladies 0-36 Bristol Bears Women
Bristol Bears Women thrashed Waterloo as they marched to back-to-back victories.

Lucy Attwood impressed with a double as Amy Coles closed the scoring on her Premier 15s debut. Becky Hughes also touched down on her first start of the season.

Loughborough Lightning 24-28 Saracens Women
Libby Lockwood's last-gasp try ensured Saracens maintained their perfect start to the season.

Sarries' effort was nothing short of impressive as they fought back from a 17 point half-time deficit. Despite letting the champions back into the game, Loughborough did leave with both a losing and try bonus-point.

Wasps FC Ladies 29-14 Darlington Mowden Park Sharks
Wasps bounced back from their narrow loss to Gloucester-Hartpury last week, taking all five points from their meeting with DMP Sharks.

Abigail Dow continued her excellent run of form, dotting down twice, after tries from Katie Mason and Hannah West.

Richmond Women 35-8 Worcester Warriors Women
Week three marked Richmond's first win of the season as they hosted Worcester.

The first-half was a tight affair with a 40th minute try putting the hosts five points ahead at the break. They built off that in the second-half scoring again within five minutes and kept the scoreboard ticking until they secured the bonus-point.

Harlequins Women 39-12 Gloucester-Hartpury Women
Quins kept their foot on the gas with their third successive bonus-point win on Saturday.

The league leaders took control early on with Leanne Riley's fourth-minute try. Just five points ahead at half-time, Shaunagh Brown's brace helped fight off a Gloucester-Hartpury comeback before Sarah Beckett closed the scoring.

The next round of Tyrrells Premier 15s will be played on the weekend of October 12th/13th with Bristol Bears vs Wasps looking to be the game of the round.
