Your News Swanage & Wareham 2XV 38 - Salisbury 2XV 7

Swanage & Wareham’s 1st XV did not have a game this weekend, but this 2nd XV Cup Semi-final was an attraction.

In the first minute, Salisbury missed with a penalty attempt but Swans were soon on the attack and scrum half Scott Smyth broke from a scrum and scored Swans’ first try. After 20 minutes a break by full back Danny Bennett resulted in his going in for a try, which was converted by fly half Tim Marshall(12-0). Swans continued to press the Salisbury line and went further ahead as winger Toby Price scored in the corner. 17 – 0 at half time.

Early in the second half, once again Danny Bennett evaded the Salisbury defence to score his second try. Marshall added the extras. Salisbury came back into the game and on the hour mark went over for a converted try (24 – 7). Almost from the restart Swans went further ahead as flank forward Jesse Scott powered his way over the try line. Marshall added the conversion. Salisbury tried to come back into the game and put Swans defence under some pressure, but just before the final whistle winger Toby Price broke clear to add a further converted try, giving Swans 2nd XV a 38pt – 7pt victory, and a passage into the final.
