Warriors Women need your support!

Updated: Apr 13

In these times of continued uncertainty at Sixways, one thing has endured and that is the effort and endeavour shown by our Women's team. They remain on course for their best ever league finish, currently standing 6th in the table with two fixtures remaining. The first of these is away at Loughborough this afternoon.

The team has already been announced with on form winger Vicky Laflin captaining the side once again. Dynamic hooker and crowd favourite Carys Phillips will be keen to add to her impressive tally of 11 tries this season while Tori Sellors looks to build on her half-back partnership with Japanese international, Minori Yamamoto.

Loughborough Lightning are two places below Warriors in the Premier 15s table but have been scoring tries for fun of late with two big away wins against Wasps and DMP Sharks.

The reverse fixture in February was a tight affair with Warriors only pulling away in the second half to win 28-19.

With the climax to the season, and a final home game, being against Harlequins on Saturday June 3rd at 2pm, Jo Yapp and her team would dearly love to do the treble over Quins. Warriors pulled off a surprise bonus point win at The Stoop in the opening round of league fixtures and closed out a win in the cup at Sixways with a late try from rising star Abi Kershaw.

The team and coaching staff have stood up to be counted; now it's the supporters' turn. We have all seen the appeal for short-term funding to allow the team to continue operations over the closed season. One way of guaranteeing income for Worcester Warriors Women is to purchase tickets for match-days. 100% of ticket revenue at home matches goes to the rugby club. 0% goes to the owners of WRFC trading limited, so if you have concerns as to whose pockets you are lining by purchasing tickets you can be very much reassured.

We need a real community effort to get behind the only top tier rugby team remaining in the West Midlands. Bring the whole family along to see some major international stars of the Women's game. The club are targeting a crowd of over 1000 for the Quins game; this would provide a major boost both to team morale and club coffers as they look to close out the season (and the half-term holiday) on a high.

Tickets are available now @ £7.50 from the club website and include free parking. On the gate tickets can be purchased @ £10.
