Leicestershire ladies played in their third match at Birstall RFC of the qualifying rounds against Cheshire in what wasn’t just a match but a fight for a place in the semi-finals.
Both teams had won their previous two games, so neither were going to give up without a fight. Leicestershire were the stronger team on the day, but Cheshire certainly did not give up fighting right through to the end. Leics defended strong and refused to let them through. We scored a final try in the closing minutes to guarantee our spot in the semi’s. FT 34-17.
We now play Eastern Counties away on Sunday 20th May. Venue details TBC.
