1st xv vs Sherborne

SWANAGE & WAREHAM RUGBY FOOTBALL CLUB LTD.

SHERBORNE 22pts SWANAGE & WAREHAM 6pts

​​For their first league game of the Swans had to travel to Sherborne. Although Swans put up a good show in the first half Sherborne dominated in the second period.
​​Playing with the wind in the first half, Swans were soon on the scoreboard, when from a scrum the ball came back to full back Stephen Woolley who dropped a goal which went over after hitting the crossbar after 4 minutes(0pts -3pts). A penalty was awarded to Sherborne after 10 minutes which they put within 5 metres of the Swans line and from the resulting line out the home side pushed the Swans pack backwards for a push over try. The conversion was missed(5pts – 3pts). 5 minutes later Stephen Woolley scored from 25 metres with a penalty to take Swans ahead at 5pts – 6pts. The rest of the half was evenly fought but Sherborne seemed to have the edge, but there was no more score before the interval.
​​After two minutes of the second half another push over try by the hosts put Sherborne 12pts – 6pts up . Swans countered with a series of attacks on the Sherborne defence, but the defence was secure. On 58 minutes Sherborne cleared their lines, and a break down the right had the hosts going in for a try in the corner on the hour mark.(17pts – 6pts). Much of the play was in the centre of the park, but a scrambled try after 77 minutes gave Sherborne their bonus point try making the score 22pts – 6pts which was the final score.
