TOWCESTRIANS 74pts SWANAGE & WAREHAM 9pts

​​Swanage & Wareham ended their season with their furthest away trip to Towcestrians, close to Northampton. Towcestrians had won the league and Swans were relegated so a difficult game was expected.
​​In the first few minutes Swans made ground into the Towcester 22 and won a penalty just outside and Phil Graves slotted it over after 3 minutes. Almost immediately Towcestrians scored with an overlap as their full back scored out wide after 8 minutes(5pts – 3pts). Swans were playing well in the first 20 minutes, keeping the ball in the forwards, and won a penalty outside of theTowcestrians 22, which once again Phil Graves converted(5pts – 6pts) after 22 minutes. From there on once the ball was won by the Towcestrians three – quarters their line speed and power told. By the 36th minute the hosts had added three more tries to take the score to 31pts – 6pts before on the stroke of half time a third penalty goal by Phil Graves took the half time score to Towcestrians 31pts Swans 9pts.
​​In the second half it was mostly Towcestrians on the attack, realising Swans defence frailities the Towcestrians ran in a series of tries which Swans could not contain, mostly scored by the Towcestrians three-quarters. By the 50th minutes the score was 50pts – 9pts, and by the end of the match Towcestrians had advanced to 74pts – 9pts.
