HAVING lost at home to this Waterloo outfit, The Chargers were expecting a battle as they travelled up to Liverpool last Sunday and were not disappointed.

Waterloo have taken no prisoners this season in their drive for a cup playoff to the Premiership.

The Chargers on the other hand had a point to prove after the misery of a home loss, the first in a very long time.

However, Waterloo proved a cut above the rest disrupting and capitalising on the slightest error, sucking in defenders and then shipping the ball out to the backs to work their magic.

Down to 14 players early on following a yellow card, it was only a matter of time before Waterloo would reap the benefits, scoring under the posts and converting to take the lead. The Chargers didn’t panic turning a well flighted kick off back into attack, but Waterloo stayed strong in defence to regain possession.

As they made inroads Camp Hill again lost shape allowing Waterloo another easy score before half time.

The second half proved a similar story to the first, Waterloo scooping up more points.

Time for a change and The Charges brought on some fresh legs. A tactic that paid off as Ruth Matta ran in Camp Hill’s only try towards full time.
