OA Saints shut out Blackheath to book their spot in the quarter-final of the RFU Intermediate Cup.

Although it threatened to rain and was windy throughout, the Saints were able to move the ball and scored five tries unanswered to win 33-0.

Two tries in the first half from fly-half Nicky Cameron either side of Jodie Rettie’s score, and followed by front row Debbie McHugh’s try just before half-time sent Saints into the break 28-0 ahead.

Blackheath rallied in the second half, although Saints scored again in the corner in the first minute of the half, which proved to be the last points of the game.

Saints go through to the quarter-finals and await the draw to discover who will be their opponents on February 22.
