An April meeting at Romford & Gidea Park had ended in a 44-29 loss, but raised £300 for cancer research.

And Essex came up short in the rematch, as Kent’s strong scrum and pace in the backs proved key, despite a final try from Romford’s Anna Castley-Macdonald.

The average age of the Essex team was 37 and held over 200 years of playing experience, ranging from just one year to 27 years.

The Essex Vets are looking to return against new opposition in April and any women interested in trying rugby in 2018 are invirted to the Romford Ravens Inner Warrior event at Romford & Gidea Park’s Crow Lane base on Saturday, January 20.
