FOLLOWING the frustration of having several competitions cancelled recently due to Storm Ciaran and other appalling weather, the Wight Wolves women's rugby team were glad to be back in action.

In New Milton for their third touch tournament of the season, the Wolves were in for a tough day — able to field seven players, but with no substitute cover. 

Up against Fordingbridge, with two of the players en route to the ground, the Islanders borrowed a couple from New Milton and lost 3-0. 

In their second match against a joint team from Salisbury and Aldershot & Fleet, Phoebe scored in their 1-1 draw.

Up against New Milton's seconds, with the Wolves this time borrowing Andover players to help with substitutes, the Islanders won 3-1. 

But New Milton's firsts beat the Wolves 2-0.

In their final match against Gosport and Fareham, the Wolves plundered one of their players to boost their side and, despite the wolf pack playing well, lost 3-0.

The Wolves finished sixth.

Their next touch tournament is in Salisbury on Sunday, December 3, with their home event, at Wootton, scheduled for Sunday, January 21.
