SWANAGE & WAREHA M RUGBY FOOTBALL CLUB LTD.
SWANAGE & WAREHAM 96pts BRIDPORT 0pts
Swanage & Wareham, having been relegated last season, were determined to get promoted back this season and started so I’m fine fashion.
It started in the first minute as Swans left winger Harry Spyers ran in a try in the corner. Centre Charlie Rowberry was next on the scoresheet two minutes later, with scrum half Lee Hardy making the score 17 – 0after only 8 minutes. Flanker Matt Roberts went in for Swans fourth try four minutes later, and by twenty minutes Harry Spyers went in again to make the score 27 – 0. It was becoming a one sided game, and six minutes later right winger Tom Haw went in at the corner. Matt Roberts went in for his second try before the interval, with time before the break for Lee Hardy scoring his second try of the game making the score at half time Swans 44pts Bridport 0pts.
The carnage continued in the second half as after 46 minutes Harry Spyers went in again, and replacement flanker George Pavey scored his first try for Swans. Both were converted(58pts –nil).
Second row Charlie Joynt was next on the scoreboard, and just on the hour mark Harry Spyers went in for his fourth try of the game(68pts – nil) A couple of penalties to Bridport put them into the game, but an attempt at goal drifted wide. In the final ten minutes winger Tom Haw ran in three tries down the wing, all of which were converted taking the score to 89 – nil and finally in the last minute George Pavey scored his second try of the match leaving the final score Swans 96pts Bridport nil.
Ellingham & Ringwood 2nd 15pts Swanage & Wareham 2nd 7pts.
