Oxford Roos (2nds) vs University of Nottingham 4ths

It was third time lucky for the Roos, as they got their first win of the season on Wednesday. In previous matches, the Roos have struggled to break the opposing centre pass and often the conversion rate of any interceptions that have been made has been disappointing; this has been the focus of recent training sessions. However, it was a different story this week: Kirsty McCann and Laura Hindley in particular were on fire in defence and some fantastic shooting converted the turnovers resulting in a comfortable 41-29 victory. Roos Captain Annabel Wood was awarded player of the match.
