HARLEQUINS fell 17-5 to defending Capital Rugby Union women’s champions Spartans in the CRU 7s pre-season finals on Sunday at the Monier Rugby Park.
Spartans’ Jill Yallon was too quick for her Harlies opponents, scoring two tries in the first seven minutes, with play-maker Yarowena Morofa converting one.
At 12-0, the Harlies replied with speedster Cassandra Sampson’s classic try set up by halfback Taleh Bagitato close the gap to 12-5.
Spartans regrouped and played wide, scoring another try to Yallon to stretch their lead.
Spartans are expected to create more upsets when the season proper 10s competition which starts in April.
