And just like that even stevens at half time – 25-25. With England scoring 10 of the last 12 goals at my count – the Ferns were leading 23-15 before the Roses got a run on. Similar to Q1, but three quick turnovers caused the tide to turn.
EUB replaced Mentor at GK to start the quarter.
Clarke came on at WD with Cobden to the bench part way through.
Ferns unchanged. Be interesting if Noeline gives Nweke a go. I felt Metuarau’s work rate was waning toward half time.
Right, off to the gym. Hope the Ferns continue in a similar vein but think the momentum is with the Roses.
