Women's rugby at university level is once again in safe hands after the Welsh Colleges ruled supreme for the second year running at the National Championship at Loughborough.
The Welsh team, coached by senior team members Gemma Hallett and Jenny Davies, went through the tournament unbeaten. Astonishingly, Welsh Colleges haven't lost a game in the competition since 2008.
In the opening game against South West, tries by Alex Stokes, Rosie Fletcher and Rhianydd Morgan gave Welsh Colleges a narrow 15-14 win before the students brushed aside West Midlands 20-7 with Stokes, Morgan (2) and Steph Williams touching down.
In the third game Welsh Colleges recorded a comfortable 38-12 win over South East with Rosie Fletcher leading the way with a hat trick while Williams and Jessica Smith both crossed twice.
Tries by Williams and Nadine Powell were enough to secure a 10-0 victory over East before the unbeaten run was completed against North East with a 41-0 trouncing where the try scorers were Powell, Fletcher Delyth Davies (2) and Stokes.
