After a disappointing loss to Birmingham uni, Tornadoes were keen to make a mends and next up was another trip up to Manchester, this time Manchester City were the opponents. The team in orange made a slightly brighter start edging out the early exchanges 3-2. The game continued to grow in pace and ability and with that Manchester City began to get a better foot hold onto the match and ended the half on top.
Continuing on from where they left off Manchester city grew and grew and a valiant effort from Leicester went unrewarded as they succumbed to a 17-9 loss. Positives all round as the new free pass move had a successful first outing with Ant being the beneficiary. Special mention to the tornadoes girls their all round effort kept everyone going and Chloe getting her first goal for the club was a particular highlight along with Sam scoring her first double and Rachael scoring her first for the season. Signs of great things to come from the girls of Leicester Tornadoes.
