Some rugby was also played

Sasha and Jess's post match celebrations on one of the drier bits of Saracen's pitch. This, and 43 other pictures from the game can now be found on Phil's rugby archive (or in the slideshow).

And, while on the subject of yesterday's game, a word of praise to the forwards - and especially the front row - who played brilliantly. The work of forwards is often overlooked as their names rarely feature on the scoreboard, but they held - and even pushed back at times - what was probably a larger Saracens pack. They were also a major reason why Saracens - although they often got within inches of the line - could never get over it

They also totally dominated the line-out, Emily out-jumping (with Laura and Rosie's help) Saracens by a foot or more. Phil's picture is typical - and shows that the training at the start of the season is working well.

Rosie and Ellie also made many hard yards, sucking in the opposition to give room for all the backs to make their runs.

So well done to everyone - you were all outstanding.
