Match Report

1st xv vs Windsor


​​In their latest game in SouthWest One, Swans had to travel to middle of the table, Windsor, and as expected it was a difficult fixture.
​​Swans started off quite well, but as soon as Windsor obtained the ball it was passed along the three-quarters to the left winger who scored a converted try after 5 minutes. Swans had a chance to reduce the score, but the penalty kick drifted wide. Swans were performing well for the first 20 minutes or so, but a penalty to Windsor saw them increase their lead to 10pts. However as Swans were putting some pressure on the hosts a second row forward for Windsor, intercepted a pass and cantered to the line. The conversion was missed making the score 15pts – nil after 30 minutes, which was the half time score.
​​5 minutes after the interval a penalty resulted in Windsor progressing to within 10 metres of the Swans line and a catch/drive move resulted in a try in the corner.(20pts – nil). Swans were putting in a serious performance, but whenever the ball came to Windsor they seemed to score. They scored a try in the 55th minute to increase the lead to 25 pts, and a converted try after 60 minutes to bring the advantage to 32pts – nil. However Swans were not disheartened, and after 65 minutes a period of pressure close to the Windsor line had Swans pushing the opposition pack over the line with second row Ollie Andrews coming up with the ball. (32 pts – 5pts) .Swans continued to attack the hosts line and after a series of phases centre Matt Roberts crossed the line out wide to make the final score Windsor 32pts Swanage & Wareham 10 pts.
