Match Report

Swans vs Trowbridge


Swans welcomed Trowbridge to Bestwall last Saturday, but after a strong first half the home side lost the game in the middle of the second half.
​​After a couple of penalties were missed by each side, Trowbridge took the lead with a try by winger George Fowles in the corner after ten minutes. All most immediately Swans were awarded a penalty kick 30 metres out which fly half Phil Graves converted.(3pts – 5pts). From a line out in the Trowbridge 22, Swans put pressure on the visitors, and after several phases the ball went out to flanker Will Corsie who powered over the try line close to the posts. Graves added the extras(10pts – 5pts). Five minutes before the interval Trowbridge full back Ashly Chalk cut through the Swans defence to score close to the posts.(10pts – 12pts). However Swans replied in the last minute of the half, with a catch/drive move from the ten metres out, with hooker Robert Elford claiming the touchdown. Graves converted, leaving the half time score Swanage & Wareham 17pts Trowbridge 12pts.
​​For the first fifteen minutes of the second half, Trowbridge did not move out of the Swans 22 as they put substantial pressure on the Swans defence, which held firm. Once Swans had cleared their lines with a penalty, they made a mistake on their line out, which the visitors seized upon, and moved the ball along the backs for Fowles to score in the corner after 58 minutes.(17pts each). In the next five minutes two more Swans mistakes at lines out enabled Trowbridge to score two more converted tries to put the game beyond Swans reach.(17pts – 31pts). In the last ten minutes Swans got their game back on track, and put Trowbridge under pressure, but the game was gone.
