Wymondham played their first home game of 2012 on a pitch where the going was heavy before disintegrating into a quagmire. In true Wasp style they camped in the opposition 22 from the kick off. Pressure soon resulted in a turnover and from a drive initiated by Taylor a rolling maul ensued touched down by Dyche to open the scoring.On receipt of the kick off Wymondham again attacked and worked their way down field. A loose ball was snapped up by Crook who stretched for the line for the second score. With a cushion of two scores and some gentle encouragement from the coach the Wasps started to play a wider game and good clean hands on a muddy ball released the reinvigorated DeVaux on the wing who outpaced the defence to score under the posts. Dyche converted.A small slip in Peterboroughs ruck defence was spotted by Dyche who powered through an attempted tackle to run almost fifty metres to score her second of the day. With scoring potential in the forwards and out wide the Peterborough defence was stretched to the limit. Gaps began to appear and on 21 minutes Crowther exploited one such gap and scored her first of the day. This was to be the first of five for Crowther who within ten minutes had bagged her hat trick. With seven first half tries and three conversions Wymondham had for the second game amassed 41 points in one half. This score line did not reflect the pressure Peterborough had applied for long periods only to be held at bay by an impenetrable defensive display by the whole Wymondham team.The second half began with Peterborough again applying pressure from powerful runs around the fringes only to be repelled by Wymondhams defence led admirable by scrum half Gomez. Pressure absorbed and turnover won, good ball was released to the backs and Crowther broke free from the mud shackles and sprinted to the line.A good attacking passage of play from the kick off again created space for Crowther who ran her fifth of the day completing her second five try haul in two games. Converted by Dyche. Almost immediately from the kick off Dyche managed to wriggle her way through the smallest of gaps and break free of the pursuing defence and score her third of the day again converted by Dyche.More pressure from Peterbrough brought more defence from Wymondham which held firm often gaining ground. Front foot defence provided opportunities for Dyche and Taylor to jackal. Turnover ball left an undefended blind side which was exploited by Lockwood who scored the final try of the game despite close attention from the Peterborough cover defence.The referee brought an end to the game at the point when he could no longer tell the teams apart due to the mud layer both sides were enveloped in.Squad: Walsh ,Lockwood, Bendle, Taylor, Pigg, Dyche, Gomez, Crook, DeVaux, Clarke, Crowther, Sweetman, Elgar, Hanser, Lewin, Brumpton, Perry, Broomfield, Plunkett, Spruce, Elliott.
