​​Swans welcomed Salisbury for this fixture after Salisbury hadnot fulfilled the fixture earlier in the season.
​​After an initial penalty to the visitors, Swans were soon on the attack and a penalty took the home side into the Salisbury 5 metres line and from the resulting line out after 3 minutes flank forward Marcus Seaton crashed over the line. Steve Woolley added the extras(7pts – nil). The play was even for much of the next 15 minutes but Swans were always on top. On twenty minutes a penalty took Swans into the 5metres line and this time the other flank forward Sam Turner was on hand to score out wide.(12pts – nil). From then on Swans were on the offensive and centre Matt Roberts was next in for a converted try after 28 minutes. Four minutes later, from a drive, hooker Joe Scott powered over the line for a converted try,(26pts – nil). From a scrum on Salisbury’s 22 a fine move from the backs had winger Lee Hardy going in for a try in the corner. Half time Swans 31pts Salisbury 2nd XV nil.
​5 minutes after the interval a line out was secured by Swans second row Will Long who forced his way past a couple of defender to score a fine individual try. Steve Woolley added the two points(38pts – nil). After 52 minutes once again a fine move along the three quarters had winger Lee Hardy scoring close to the posts. Woolley converted(45 pts – nil).
