Hammers 2nd XV Women put in a spirited performance.

A loss never felt so much like a win. After a solid warm-up, the Hammers were ready and raring to kick off.

Reading got off to an impressive start and scored 4 trys during the match, however a good defensive effort and some excellent dominant tackles prevented Reading’s score line from increasing.
As well as shining defensively, the Hammers were a cohesive unit with an excellent attitude and excellent communication. Although not meant to be, consistency from the forwards followed by speed and skill from the backs set us up for a few try near-misses.
Sunday’s performance was a sign of things to come for the Hammers 2s, as with regular training to fine-tune key points for improvement, the Hammers 2s gave the makings of a formidable side. NC1, we’re coming for you.

Back Of The Match – went to Sian for her impressive work rate throughout the game

Forward Of The Match – went to Mirriam with a splendid return to match day rugby. Bossing it at hooker, making metres and strong tackles across the pitch.
