Thurrock T-Birds 29 vs 7 Bath

ANOTHER good day for the T-Birds. A structured, fast paced first half that Bath had no answer to was enough to earn a victory and climb back into the top three. The bonus point was wrapped up in a second half performance that highlighted our defensive patterns.

Final score:

Thurrock T-Birds 29 vs 7 Bath

Try scorers:

Ellie Lawther, India Harvey (c), Lizell Heather, Annalie Kerley and Niketa Akintade

Lizell Heather added two conversions.

Coach Andy Yarrow said ‘We have worked the girls tirelessly in training the last month or so & it is amazing to see the attacking structures being put into practice so successfully.

“We have stepped up the last two games and put ourselves right back in the title picture. We need to keep this momentum moving forward.

“The first half tempo was outstanding today to get a bonue point win against a Bath side who caused us so many problems earlier this season just highlights how far the squad.”

Next week T-Birds travel to Swindon to face bottom side Supermarine who have been improving in their results week by week. Thurrock aim to come away with another bonus point win.
