Using their brand of off-loading rugby, the Saints racked up 35 points in the first half and 40 points in the second, all of which were tries.

The tries were scored by Katie Robertson, Lou Blunt, Nicky Cameron (two), Chloe Allcorn, Sophie Tyler (two), Jodie Rettie, Alice Finn, Emma Cramphorn, and Katerina Josephides.

Robertson also got half a season’s worth of kicking practice in one afternoon, converting 10 of 11 attempts.

Try of the match was scored by wing Lou Blunt. Fly-half Cameron spotted space behind the New Ash Green defensive line and, taking the ball on the Saints 10-metre line, put in a perfectly judged cross-field kick that was chased down and picked up by outside centre Allcorn who beat three players before off-loading to Blunt to finish from the 22.
