Bletchley Ladies moved to within a point of second place in Midlands 2 after seeing off Shelford for the second time in seven days.

Following last week’s 58-12 crushing at Manor Fields, the away leg was a much tigher affair, but Bletchley once again came out on top, winning 25-19.

Bex Driscoll scored the opening try, but Shelford converted a try to lead 7-5.

Emily Castle restored Bletchley’s lead, but another converted effort from Shelford, and then a third try saw them open a 19-10 lead.

But three unconverted tries, from Beth Metcalf, Rachael Taylor and Caroline Collie saw Bletchley overturn the deficit and secure the victory.

Next up for Bletchley is Worcester, who sit second in the table.
