Match Report – Trailfinders Women vs Exeter Chiefs 10-40

Trailfinders Women’s return to PWR action following the Women’s Six Nations ended in a tough defeat, losing 40-10 to Exeter Chiefs Women at TFSC.

Two late tries from Abby Dow ensured the home side did not endure a whitewash from the rampant Chiefs.

Exeter opened the scoring 12 minutes in through Irish international Cliodnha Moloney, crashing over the line off the rolling maul after successive Trailfinders penalties. Robyn Wilkins converted.

A smart Wilkins 50-22 put the Chiefs in excellent position again just three minutes later, which they fully capitalised on through Maisy Allen as she was the next beneficiary off of the powerful Chiefs rolling maul.

In a tough half for the home side, Rosie Inman looked the most dangerous threat as she burst through midfield with a quick inside step thirty minutes in, but the move broke down a few phases later.

Things went from bad to worse for Trailfinders after the break as Elisa Riffonneau was sent to the sinbin, and it only took one phase for Exeter to take advantage through Wilkins, who burst through a gap in the line 10 metres out to score. She converted her own try.

Despite the defeat, congratulations to Shannon Ikahihifo who was our Arnold Hill Player of the Match
