T-Birds on song again

Try scorer Sarah-Jane Earwicker

Trojans 0, Thurrock T-Birds 24

THURROCK’S ladies continued their improvement after a disappointing start to the season with Sunday’s win at Trojans.

Try-scorers were Samantha Willmott, Sarah-Jane Earwicker, Lizell Heather and Nikita Akintade, with heather adding two conversions.

Coach Andy Yarrow said: “Today was important for many reasons, we proved we could perform on the road but also kept Trojans scoreless in a fantastic defensive display.

“The new look squad continues to grow and today you really see the girls try to apply our new game structures to break down a gnarly Trojans side.

“The phase play and also the ferocity at the break down were fundamental in our success.

“We are now back in the top three and building nicely. Next Sunday we host Henley Hawks at Oakfield so a big crowd would be fantastic!”
