Women's Super League Round Up

Just 2 games to cover in Women's Super League this week, with league leaders Leeds hosting Bradford and Wigan making the trip across Featherstone.

Leeds Rhinos vs Bradford Bulls

The Rhinos would open the scoring through a former Bradford player, the ever present Lois Forsell grubbering from dummy half and collecting her kick in the in goal to register first points, Courtney Hill converting. Bradford would retaliate through Amy Hardcastle after a barrage of attacks to level the score, Claire Garner on hand to convert. It would then be two quick fire run away tries for the Rhinos, first Danielle Anderson burtsting the line to go 35 metres, then Forsell from the restart would step past 3 defenders and race away to push the Rhinos out to a commanding 16-6 lead at the half.

The second half wouldn't start off much better for the visitors, a mistake inside the first minute of play gave Caitlin Beevers an opportunity to show off her pace, the Rhinos winger going into the corner from range. Just minutes later the Rhinos would strike again, Frankie Townend forcing her way over from the play the ball just a metre out, the Rhinos now leading 30-6 after 4 unanswered tries. Bradford would strike the final blow through Jess Courtman who found her way over with the last play of the game, the try becoming nothing more than a consolation as Leeds retained top spot with a 30-10 victory.

Featherstone Rovers vs Wigan Warriors

A string of successive penalties would see Featherstone open the scoring against the Warriors at the LD Nutrition Stadium, Chum capitalising on the field position to grab first points for the hosts. Wigan would clap back just 3 minutes later, Davis setting away Becky Greenfield to level the scoring inside 10 minutes. Wigan would soon take the lead, moving the ball to the right before Sibbald found her way to the try line thanks to a big overlap, the conversion missed making it 10-6. Wigan would soon be in full control thanks to Greenfield scoring out on the left, a smart pass at the line putting the fullback through as she stretched out to put down. Harrowell would set the game up for a close second half as she crashed over for the Rovers, sending the two sides into the sheds at 14-10 to Wigan.

A mistake from the kick off would give Featherstone first points of the second half, the try converted to see the Rovers lead for the first time since the 5th minute. The lead would be short lived as Wigan would take the easy two points on offer, Davis nailing the conversion.
