After three rounds of the new Tyrells Premier 15s, a picture is beginning to emerge. There seem to be some big discrepancies in the quality between some of the sides who make up the 10-team league.
Saracens, Gloucester-Hartpury and Harlequins are three sides who seem to be head and shoulders above the rest. They all enjoyed big wins in Round 3 – Saracens beat Worcester 74-0, Quins beat Loughborough Lightning 40-19 away and Gloucester-Hartpury beat Richmond 29-0 at home.
Saracens have Marlie Packer in their ranks for this season, and she got her debut off to the perfect start when she scored six tries in the 74-0 rout of Worcester.
Loughborough’s defeat to Quins did contain this excellent try from Charlotte Pearce. This score made it 14-5 to the hosts but they ultimately succumbed to a 19-40 defeat.
There were some other great tries from the weekend which you can find below.
And here’s this weekend’s fixtures.
