Leicester Tigers centre Katie Childs marked her birthday with a try and four conversions in a win at Worcester on Sunday but insists every game is a development opportunity in the Women’s Championship North.
Tigers made it a trio of league wins from the start of the season with the 58-7 verdict at Worcester, though the scoreline did not tell the full story.
“It was definitely a hard-fought game,” said Childs who turned 23 on matchday.
"It always feels good to win, but there’s always things to work on. They had some good carriers and we had to work hard in our defence. We put a lot of work into that and it pays off.
“The scorelines look impressive and it is exciting to see what is ahead of us on this great journey, but we know every game is going to be tough and you always take away something to work on. We've focused on development this season. It’s all about playing, working together and improving the performances.”
Tigers scored 43 unanswered points in the first half at Worcester, but conceded the opening points after the break before Childs got on the scoresheet.
“We’d just conceded that try and we wanted to come straight back at them,” the centre said. “I had two people outside but they weren’t going to get the ball!”
