At Dorchester RFC.

The Seasiders never managed to recover from a disastrous first quarter when they shipped 10 points with no reply courtesy of two tries one converted.

They did however manage to put three points on the score board in first half injury time through a penalty from fly half Tim Peplow.

Always struggling to secure their own ball in both scrum and line out Weymouth had to live off the scraps of possession that fell from the Blandford plate, but when they did manage to get their hands on the ball all to often it was spilled and then turned over.

The Seasiders raised the stakes after the break and unsettled Blandford who also began to buckle and following a period of pressure Number 8 Julian Quick drove over from the back of a scrum and with Peplow’s conversion the Seasiders were back in contention.

Against the run of play Blandford charged downfield and crossed for a try in the corned that was converted off an upright then added three more points at the death with a penalty kick.

Weymouth made one more sortie into Blandford territory, but time ran out and it is Blandford who travel home with the silverware.
