Swansea Women’s RFC completed a great weekend for the club with a demolition of Pencoed WRFC in the first round of the Women’s Super Cup. The Whites as defending back to back cup holders were determined to put the off colour performance of 17th February and the loss to Pontyclun in the league behind them. This was illustrated by an early score from wing Lowri Norkett. Tries soon followed from Alecs Donovan, Emma Hennesey and Natalia John. Sasha Bailey on the opposite wing ended a productive first-half with a brace of tries herself and Outside-half Jodie Evans weighed in with three conversions for a commanding 36 – 0 lead at half-time.
Lowri Norkett commenced the second-half as she had started the match by crossing for her second try before Bailey completed a deserved hat trick, Evans adding the extras for a 48 – 0 score line. There was still time for skipper Robyn Lock and replacement Courtney Edwards to cross the whitewash and Jodie Evans to kick both goals for a full-time score of 62 – 0.
With Swansea’s squad set to get stronger after international duties, the talent in depth was an encouraging sign for the Whites as they await the draw for the second round. Swansea WRFC should certainly fear no one in the competition if this level of performance can be maintained.
