An overcast but rain-free Portland morning saw a Worcester win over the hometown Portland Women. The first half ended in a tight battle, 12-7 to Worcester. Worcester were a bit stronger in the mid-field and this strength proved telling in the second half as they created several try-scoring opportunities. When Portland moved the ball to their strike runners at 13, 14 & 15 they were very dangerous. Worcester however put 3 tries on the board to Portland's two in the second half, adding 2 conversions to Portland's one for the final 31-19 scoreline. Well-played by all on a perfect rugby day.

Referee: Gary Devoe
