Lewis strikes as Wales Women stun Scots


Dragons Women back row ace Bethan Lewis scored a crucial first half try as Wales Women stunned Scotland Women with a late win.

Lleucu George showed nerves of steel to kick a last gasp conversion to secure Wales Women’s first victory of the Six Nations campaign.

It looked as if Scotland were going to be the team who were going to get off the mark in this year’s Women’s Six Nations when Chloe Rollie crashed over to give Scotland a 15-10 lead with three minutes to go.

But Siwan Lillicrap, who spilled the ball at the try-line in the first-half, made up for her earlier error to level the scores at the death.

And George slotted the conversion against a strong wind to claim victory with a stunning last kick to get Wales off the mark.

Lewis capped a fantastic first-half performance with a try to level the scores in reply to Scotland’s scores from Jade Konkel and Rachel Malcolm.
