Harlequins Women’s Cumbrian captain Abbie Scott says the quality within the Quins team makes her role easy.

After three matches this season, Harlequins and Saracens lead the way in Tyrrells Premier 15s, having won all of their league fixtures so far this term.

On Saturday, Harlequins earned a 39-12 win over Gloucester Hartpury, running away with things in the second period after they had held a 12-7 half-time advantage.

"That was a really big test for us, our hardest game so far," Keswick's Scott said.

"To go in at half-time under quite a lot of pressure and to put on the second-half [performance] that we did, putting the points on, getting the bonus point, I think the girls are delighted.

"We’ve shown that, under pressure and under the cosh, we have got the doggedness to come out on top."

In the first half, Leanne Riley and Italian Giada Franco scored tries for Harlequins, before Shaunagh Brown crossed the whitewash twice after the restart with Sarah Beckett also scoring, while fly-half Ellie Green heavily contributed, too.

This Saturday, Harlequins travel to Darlington Mowden Park Sharks.

“That poses a different type of challenge,” 26-year-old Scott told the Harlequins club website.

“It’s a long trip and it’s going to be our first big away trip, so it’s going to be interesting to see how everyone travels. But I think everyone will be up for it.”
