SWANAGE & WAREHAM RUGBY FOOTBALL CLUB LTD.

WEYMOUTH & PORTLAND 18pts SWANAGE & WAREHAM 34pts

​​Swanage & Wareham had to travel away to Weymouth in their latest league game, and after an uncertain start Swans took control in the first half.
​​Swans started badley giving away three penalties in the first seven minutes and with the last of these Weymouth landed one.(3 pts – nil). Swans were soon back in control as from a line out scrum half Chris Tomes crossed the line. Steve Woolley added the extras(3pts – 7pts). On 15 minutes a quickly taken penalty had winger Harry Spyers going in for a try out wide. Another penalty against Swans on their 22 enabled Weymouth to reduce the score to 6 points. After half an hour Swans went further ahead as flanker Luke Robinson scored following a five metres line out.(6pts – 17pts) Two minutes before the break Swans were in the hosts 22, and from a scrum Swans no.8 Kirk Jones powered over the line, to score Swans bonus point try. Woolley added the conversion, making the half time score Weymouth 6pts Swans 24pts.
​​Ten minutes into the second half a fumbled ball on half way line by Swans had a Weymouth winger picking the ball up to run in a try out wide(11pts – 24pts). From the restart Swans won a penalty and as the ball was passed along the three-quarters, centre Barnaby Knibb crossed the line to put Swans 11pts to 29pts up. The game degenerated to a scrum encounter but a loose ball enabled Weymouth winger to pick up the ball and broke clear to score under the posts(18pts – 29pts). Swans continued to attack and with ten minutes to go another 5 metres line out saw Swans other flanker Matt Roberts scoring out wide to make the final score Weymouth & Portland 18pts Swanage & Wareham 34 pts.
