Your News Salisbury 35 - Swanage & Wareham 13

Swanage & Wareham travelled to Salisbury, in this league this is Swans nearest away fixture.

Swans were still without some of their more influential players due to injuries but they could only play the squad that was available.

Salisbury started well putting Swans under pressure and after five minutes Rory Davis put the home side 3 – 0 with a penalty. Six minutes later Swans replied as Charlie Parish landed one for the visitors. Swans increased their lead a few minutes later as Parish landed another penalty. Swans continued to attack for much of the rest of the first half but it was not until close to the break that from a maul prop forward Ollie Andrews forced his way over the try line. Parish added the extras giving Swans a 3 – 13 half time lead.

However two minutes into the second half a kick ahead had Salisbury winger Luke Tanabuna won the race for the ball to score a try. Swans found that whenever they kicked off Salisbury, using the wind, pumped the ball deep into Swans territory so Swans were just defending. Salisbury added a second try 15 minutes into the half to level the scores. Davis added a penalty to put Salisbury ahead, by which time Salisbury were on top and were able to add four more tries before the end as Swans never managed to get into the Salisbury 22 in the second half, with Salisbury winning by 35pts to Swans 13pts.
