Match Report


​Swanage & Wareham had to travel to Trowbridge in their latest Southwest One fixture, but after a successful first half Swans lost the lead and had to settle for a losing bonus point.
​The first fifteen minutes were evenly contested with the only chance of a score was after 11 minutes when Swans fly half Phil Graves missed a chance of a penalty goal. However as Swans attacked he had a chance to redeem himself as on 17 minutes he slotted one over.(0pts – 3pts). The hosts came close to Swans line in the next few minutes, but the visitors cleared. A series of penalties took Swans back into Trowbridge territory and on 30 minutes Phil Graves added another penalty giving Swans a 6pts advantage. In the last minute of the half a Trowbridge centre made a break from halfway, but was tackled just before the try line, and Swans cleared their lines, so at the interval Swans led by 0pts – 6pts .
​From the restart Trowbridge had a penalty which took them into Swans 5 metre area, and with a scrum close to the try line Trowbridge scored a push over try in the corner. The conversion was missed 5pts – 6pts after 43 minutes. From the kick off the ball went to the hosts pack, who broke through the Swans defence and scored a second try, out wide.(10pts – 6pts). Trowbridge seemed to have the upper hand with the penalty count, and on 55 minutes they scored another try with another push over score.(15pts – 6pts). However Swans managed to match the Trowbridge defence and after 63 minutes after a couple of scrums saw Swans centre Matt Spencer forcing his way over the Trowbridge line in the corner. 15pts – 11pts. The rest of the game was even, but towards the end of the contest Swans’ winger Pat Adkins made a break down the wing , but just before the try line he was forced into touch, so ending a Swans come back.
