Haringey Rhinos ladies made it back-to-back wisn to start the season as they sealed a 46-0 win against long-time rivals Hampstead.

Haringey made the short trip to Hampstead look to build on their season opening victory against Royston last week.

They were first to kick off and learning from past experience immediately put pressure on the Hampstead attack, forcing turnovers in open play and playing quick ball off the ruck.

Hampstead were equally formidable in their pressure, taking advantage of penalties and making use of their 10’s boot to come within yards of their goal line several times.

However, the Rhinos’ persistence were rewarded in the first half with two tries from Louise Bonnet and Emma Langley, and a boost of confidence at half-time.

Small setbacks occurred when Louise Waldock had to be taken off with a shoulder injury after stellar work in her second game as centre, followed by scrum half and playmaker Noemi Nemes with an ankle injury.

Aine McMahon easily stepped in as nine to keep up the momentum, and Fran Gamble, in her first time ever playing rugby, immediately made an impact on the pitch with a quick fire try and a second one soon after following Shauna Kiernan’s breaking of the defence down the centre of the pitch.

This set the ball rolling for the rest of the second half as Molly McNamara, not to be outdone, earned her Player of the Match award with fantastic support play and two tries of her own, Holly Mee more than earned her winger stripes with some fancy footwork to make her mark on the scorecard, and Rhiannon Ellis crossed the line for her last game before her departure to university.

Bonnet’s third and final successful conversion signalled the end of the game and a well-deserved 46-0 win to Haringey.

With two wins from two the ladies will be putting in all the work over the next few weeks ahead of their third league game against Kilburn Cosmos to stay top of the table.

They will take on the Cosmos on Saturday, October, 7.
