It was a long schlep to Brantford with limited numbers, in oppressing heat where the Scottish girls took on Brantford. Injuries and no shows necessitated the cancelling of the 2nds game.
While we maintained possession and territory for a larger portion of the game, the Brantford backs were deadly if given space and they took advantage of some inexperienced players and our own errors. They ran out wide and got around us too many times.
Our defence was solid in tight and the girls NEVER backed down or let their heads drop. The humidity was oppressive and not one of the starting XV or our 3 subs slowed down. We take 3 steps forward then 1 back but we are moving in the right direction regardless of what the score line may show. If we can stay healthy and have everyone show, then we are a side that can compete but we need the bodies at practice and on the pitch.
To those that made the journey to Brantford many thanks and special call out to Jade who came back strong from an injury, Mia who kept running forward all day; Jayda and Lauren who played “musical positions” as injuries during the match took their toll; Linda our WOM and Promise who once again was devastating on her ball carries.
