SAMURAI want to say a huge congratulations to Exeter Chiefs Women, who clinched the inaugural Allianz Cup during the Premier 15s competition on Saturday 23rd April.
Battling it out in the final against reigning champions Harlequins Women, Exeter Chiefs Women came out fighting, securing an early lead and by half-time, had the upper hand with 19 - 12 showing on the scoreboard. The second half saw a tenacious Chiefs team fighting hard to snatch the cup, taking the victory with a 57 - 12 win at their home stadium Sandy Park.
Initially formed in 1990, the Women’s Premiership competition now holds host to some of the most elite women’s rugby clubs in England. Briefly known as the Tyrrells Premier 15s in the 2017/18 season, this year’s Allianz Premier 15s was set to be the most exciting to date. Starting in autumn, the tournament ran throughout the season, seeing ten top-flight women’s clubs compete for a chance to take home the cup. After receiving the invitation to participate in last season’s game, Exeter Chiefs Women came back hungry as ever, and they did not disappoint.
SAMURAI are proud to supply and support these amazing players and their achievements that have earned them the well deserved Allianz Cup 2022 Champions title; congratulations to you all for an amazing competition.
