Due to sickness and some players having other commitments, only six players were able to travel to face Horsham Hawks, but this did not dampen the team spirit and determination with the final result Horsham Hawks 31 - D&D 54.

The ladies team formed last year and had a tough season while they found their feet,. However, thanks to the tenacity and resolve of the core of the players and the welcome addition of some new players, they faced this season with a feeling of positivity and this bore fruit in this game.
