Match Report

1st xv vs Witney

SWANAGE & WAREHAM RUGBY FOOTBALL CLUB LTD.

SWANAGE & WAREHAM 7pts WITNEY 33pts.

​​Witney, from Oxfordshire, were the visitors to the Memorial ground at Bestwall for the latest game in Southwest One. Witney were fourth in the standings, so Swans were expecting a tough fixture.
​​It took just two minutes for Witney to take the lead, as a lock forward charged through the Swans’ defence, made ground, passed inside to a centre Lewis Collins who scored close to the posts. Fly half George Lewis added the extras. (0pts – 7pts). In the next ten minutes swans gave away a series of penalties, but Witney could not capitalise. Swans were playing well from thereon and had most of the play in the opposition’s half, but a lot of niggling injuries interrupted play for most of the first half. However, on thirty minutes from a scrum, Swans released the ball to the three-quarters, it travelled along the backs to full back Callum Young who dived in for a try in the corner. Phil Graves added the difficult conversion to bring the scores level. (7 pts all at the interval).
​​The second half started well for Swans, as they attacked the Witney line, but they gave away a penalty, Witney took it quickly, Swans wre not aware and on 46 minutes Witney added a converted try.( 7pts – 14pts). Four minutes later, Witney broke through again, scored a try close to the posts which was converted. Swans did not realise what had hit them, as on 54 minutes Witney added a fourth try to give them a 7pts – 26 pts lead. Swans came back to put some pressure on the visitors, but could not score, and with ten minutes to go Witney added another converted try to leave the final score Swans 7pts Witney 33pts.
