Tyrells Premier 15s semi-final first leg: Gloucester-Hartpury 0 Saracens Women 62

Saracens Women are halfway to the Tyrells Premier 15s final after a 62-0 success away to Gloucester-Hartpury in the play-off semi-final first leg.

Saracens scored an incredible four tries in the opening 20 minutes as Marlie Packer was driven over, before 18-year-old Helena Rowland ghosted through to dive beneath the posts.

Prop Samantha Martinez-Gion added a third, before Charlotte Clapp got the fourth after a Zoe Harrison intercept and dart, which saw her stopped just before the line.

Clapp sliced through the line again soon after, with Bryony Cleall this time on hand to get over the line and give Sarries a 33-0 lead at the break.

Hannah Botterman added the sixth with Packer going over for her second on 55 minutes with Garnet Mackinder getting herself on the scoresheet.

Poppy Cleall had Saracens’ ninth on 68 minutes with Mackinder’s second rounding off a fine afternoon’s work for the visitors.
