SWANAGE & WAREHAM RUGBY FOOTBALL CLUB LTD.
TROWBRIDGE 47pts SWANAGE & WAREHAM 0pts
Swanage and Wareham Rugby club had to make a difficult away trip to Trowbridge in Southern Counties league, and so it proved.
Played under a rain soaked conditions, it took the hosts just two minutes to score their first converted try, and it did not get any better for the visitors. After 15 minutes another try out wide took the score to 12pts – nil. Swans could not get into the game and after 22 minutes Trowbridge piled on the pressure and scored a penalty try (19pts – nil). Before the half hour the hosts landed two more converted tries taking the score to 33pts – nil at the interval.
Swans suffered some injuries, and the game was reduced to uncontested scrums, which for most cases favoured Swans. However after 55 minutes Trowbridge scored their sixth converted try taking the score to 40pts – nil, and finished the game with another try 12 minutes from the end, making the final score 47pts – nil.
