OA Saints ground out a late 13-12 win at home to Blackheath to preserve their unbeaten start to the Women's Championship South season.

Trailing by two points with just minutes to go they were awarded a penalty for a Blackheath player going off her feet at a ruck.

And Caz Collie proved to be the coolest person in Woollams as she calmly slotted the kick.

Albanian had grabbed the first try in a cagey opening, Steph Plunkett touching down in the corner, but they trailed 7-5 by half-time.

Chloe Allcorn crashed over from short range in the second half but a Blackheath try nine minutes from time had seen the visitors snatch the advantage back until Collie's late interjection.

Head coach Sarah McKenna said: "This game will put us in good stead for the rest of the season.

"We were in a challenging place and I'm glad we've had this lesson early in the season."
