Your News Coney Hill 46 - Swanage & Wareham 10

Swans travelled to top of the table Coney Hill, in Gloucester on Saturday, and after the long away journey the hosts had no mercy and took Swans apart.

It only took Coney Hill five minutes to score their opening try, and for much of the opening period Swans were on the defensive. Coney Hill added another try as the left winger went clear and after 15 minutes and the hosts added a penalty goal(15 – 0) By half way through the half Coney Hill were pumping the ball downwind into the Swans half and another mistake by Swans meant they added another converted try.

(22 – 0). However a dropped ball by Coney Hill saw Swans winger Charlie Rowberry hacking the ball towards the Coney Hill line, and he outran the defence to score in the corner.22 – 5. The home side were not to be dismissed that easily and before half time they added two more tries leaving the score at the break 34 – 5.

Swans were much better in the second half, but could not penetrate the home defence. It took Coney Hill until 15 minutes into the half before they scored another converted try to lead by 41 – 5 and as Swans tried to get some points back another breakaway by Coney Hill gave them another try, ten minutes from the end of the game. However in the last few minutes the ball was passed out to Charlie Rowberry who went down the touchline to score a consolation try for Swans leaving Coney Hill winning by 46pts – 10pts.
