Match Report

1st xv vs Wimborne



​​Swanage & Wareham travelled to Wimborne for this local derby game, and found that the hosts had improved since the cup semi-final six weeks ago, and the visitors suffered their fist defeat of the season.
​​Swans had the fist attempt at scoring points but full back Steve Woolley missed with a penalty after two minutes. 5 minutes later a charge down by Wimborne in the Swans 22, the ball was kicked through and the hosts were 5pts up. With 15 minutes gone a break by Wimborne’s fly half Tom Moysey s to set up full back Joe Bartlett to score under the posts. Moysey added the extras (12pts – 0pts). However, Swans came back at the home side, and from a scrum in the hosts 22 , Swans passed the ball all along the three-quarters to winger Callum Young who scored in the corner. Steve Woolley added the conversion.(12pts – 7pts), after 24 minutes. Swans continued to pressurise the Wimborne defence, and from a scrum close to the Wimborne line, Swans’ hooker Robert Elford went in for a try to level the score at half time at 12pts each.
​The hosts came out in the second half and within a minute Tom Moysey went through Swans’ defence to score in the corner.(17pts – 12pts). Wimborne were on the offensive, and despite Swans having a series of penalties, Moysey’s kicking kept Swans pinned back in their own half. After a series of scrums on the Swans’ line, Robert Elford was yellow carded after 63 minutes, and immediately afterwards Wimborne pushed Swans over their line.(24pts – 12pts.). Just before Elford returned Wimborne added another try in the corner to take the score to 29pts – 12pts which was the final score.
