Meanwhile, Edinburgh University Ladies’ are through to the BUCS Championship final at Twickenham next week.
The capital side went into Wednesday’s semi-final with Durham University at Peffermill in fine fettle.
They had already won the BUCS Premier North league this season and had their Scotland players back from the 6 Nations.
Durham started strongly, but it was Edinburgh who led 7-0 at the interval.
The second half continued much the same way, with Durham putting phases together and Edinburgh never really getting into their stride.
Durham pulled a try back, but this was quickly followed by Megan Gaffney re-establishing the lead for Edinburgh.
Durham then crossed to close the gap to two points before in the last six minutes of the match two tries from Lisa Thomson meant a 22-10 victory for the Scots.
