Your News Blethcley 10 - Swanage & Wareham 3

Once again Swanage & Wareham had to travel to the edge of Milton Keynes to play their league game against Bletchley.

Swans started quite strongly penning the home side in their own 22. However Swans gave away two quick penalties taking Bletchley into Swans 22. From a line out ball after 6 minutes, a couple of phases had the heavier home sides forwards worked their way over for a try in the corner. As the rain fell both sides had trouble with handling the ball and it became a contest dominated by the packs. Bletchley missed with a penalty kick but Swans had problems getting into attacking positions, and it was 5pts – nil at the break.

In the second half Bletchley continued to put pressure on the Swans defence and they increased their lead after 48 minutes with once again driving over the line in the corner to lead by 10 – 0. Swans defended stoutly but they could not get out of the 22, spending the next twenty minutes there. However as time was running out a couple of penalties relieved the pressure and Swans moved up the field. A kick ahead took Swans close to the Bletchley 22. As Swans piled in the Bletchley full back was penalised for holding on to the ball and with the last kick of the game Charlie Parish landed the three points that ensured that Swans at least came away with the losing bonus point.
