Women’s National Championship South East Two: Romford 10 Hampstead 32

Hampstead made it three Women’s National Championship South East Two wins in a row with a 32-10 win at Romford.

Wing Micha Palmer opened the scoring for Hampstead by sprinting in a try which was converted Kathryn Davey.

This was followed by a powerful run from hooker Trish Brown, who blasted through a succession of Romford defenders to cross the line.

A phase of quick offloads from the back line sent the ball out wide to Palmer, who again outpaced the opposition to score.

A quick pick off the back of a ruck and offload to Brown saw her score her second of the day.

Palmer later completed a first-half hat-trick and though Romford scored a try of their own, Hampstead led 27-5 at the break.
