FYLDE coast rugby has built up a reputation for producing top try-scorers – and Dani Wiseman is following the trend set by the likes of Brendan Hanavan, Mark Preston and Nick Royle.

Dani, 24, has raced to the top of the national try-scoring charts in the women’s game.

The Ansdell ace has racked up a remarkable 20 tries in just six matches.

Free-scoring full-back Dani notched a stunning seven tries in her latest league match for Waterloo Ladies as they beat Team Northumbria 76-5 at Blundellsands.

She now stands seven tries clear of her nearest rival, having outscored rivals from 55 teams across three divisions of the women’s rugby union Rapture League.

Dani, who has been playing rugby since her university days, said: “Working with a team opens up massive scoring opportunities and has helped me along the way. Without them I wouldn’t be anywhere near that tally now.”

The form of the pacy Championship North player is helping Waterloo push for promotion into the Premiership.

Their head coach Rich Freeman said: “Dani is an exceptional player. She is committed to her rugby and to Waterloo.

“Her pace and ability to link effortlessly with the rest of the team has generated a high number of tries for herself and the team this season”

Rugby runs in the Wiseman family.

Brother David played close to 200 matches for Fylde and is now an assistant coach at the club, while Dani’s mum Julie plays for Fylde Vixens.
