The game settled a little and there were many well-contested scrums within the centre of the pitch.

At half-time, coach Jason Lowde made some key changes, swapping out the entire front row and bringing on some fresh legs into the centres.

The second half started similarly to the first with fast-paced play, strong scrummaging and plenty of counter-rucking and hard tackling.

The visitors came out with renewed energy and had some strong runs down the centre.

With counter rucking at its finest from the Valkyries it wasn't long before Hannah Lewis made a break on the wing and crashed over to score.
