Sirens Secure Second Premiership Victory


It was a good weekend for the Stewartry Sirens as they sealed their first home win of the season against Stirling County.


The day was perfectly suited to rugby, but unsure of what to expect from the visiting side, there were some scrappy early exchanges.


A good steal from Clare Dooley in the Stirling 22 led to a strong carry from Iona St Joseph. An offload to scrum half Claire Manson saw her carry the ball down the wing and score out wide, giving the Sirens the lead.


Despite being one try up, the Sirens lacked a bit of the usual physicality.


Full back Jenny Yates gathered the ball from a kick and ran wide, opening up the space with a dummy pass out to the wing and scoring in the corner, taking the Sirens to 10-0.


After another good series of phases, prop Shannon Nicholson almost made it across the whitewash, but was unfortunately pushed out into touch just before the half time whistle.


The second half was played in a style more suited to a wet November afternoon, rather than a sunny October day at Greenlaw. The Sirens defended all half, but the Stirling team never really looked close to scoring.


A final score of 10-0 to the Sirens sees them currently sitting in fourth place in the BT Women’s Premiership table.


The next home fixture is on the 16th of October against RHC.
