Harlequins 47-26 Leinster

Leinster were beaten by Harlequins in a historic first women's club match at Twickenham.

The game was played after the men's Harlequins side played Leicester Tigers in the Premiership on Saturday evening.

The visitors started well, but couldn't convert their early possession into scores, and they were duly punished.

England international Jess Breach scored two tries to settle Quins into a lead they would hold until the end.

Leinster finally register a try of their own as Daisy Earle got over from close range, with the help of her teammates.

It would prove to be a false dawn however as Rachael Burford quickly added a third try for the hosts, before Anna Caplice finished a well-worked move for a fourth.

Lyndsey Peat makes a break

Breach then completed her hat-trick, as Harlequins took a 33-12 lead into the break.

Former Dublin footballer Lyndsey Peat gave Leinster the perfect start on the resumption, powering over from close range, but again Quins responded quickly though Amy Cokayne.

A try for each team, from Dabanovich-O’Mahony and Fiona Fletcher completed the scoring in west London.
