Your News Weymouth 46 - Puddletown 8

Played in near perfect conditions this contest was still very much in the balance at the break with the scores at Weymouth 10 Puddletown 3, but when 19 year old first team debutant flanker George Carter gathered up a looses ball directly from the second half restart and touched down beneath the posts for veteran fly half Dave Allan to stroke over the conversion the visitors resistance seemed to desert them.

Until then Puddletown had given as good as they got and with a little more luck may have gone into the break on level terms. However it was Weymouth who took the chances they created resulting in a pair of tries from hooker James Borrington, the first in the eighth minute and the second just shy of half time with the visitors only response coming from the boot of Dan Udell with a penalty.

As Weymouth tightened their grip on proceedings lock Rich Polley was next to touch down followed by giant prop Tim Comben with the first of a pair of tries converted by Allan.

Weymouth mounted another onslaught only to turn the ball over and the Villagers made best use of the gifted possession with Josh Hiscock running half the length of the park to ground the ball for a deserved try.

Comben crossed for his second touchdown of the afternoon followed by scrum half Craig Barther to make the score 41 points to 8 the Seasiders.

With full time beckoning, Barther burst clear again to complete the scoring with his second try of the game.

After the dust had settled Weymouth skipper Tony Worle said: Our best performance so far this season, but there is still room for improvement. I would like to welcome our debutants, full back Steve Calbraith and young George Carter who is a very talented sportsman, football clubs have been courting him and he is also a quality amateur boxer, but is up to us to convince him that rugby is the game for him.

Our pack did well today and in the early stages of the game when Puddletown were coming at us I kept telling the forwards that if we kept up the tempo then our effort would pay off in the latter stages and that is just what happened.

I noticed that there were a couple of visitors from other clubs in this division coming to have a look at us, so I hope their trip was worth it, but I can promise them that there is lot more to come from Weymouth this season.
