Your News Swanage & Wareham 10 - Salisbury 64

Swanage & Wareham welcomed Salisbury to Bestwall last Saturday, but it turned out to be one of Swans heaviest defeats.

Swans started well attacking the Salisbury line, but after eight minutes a loose pass enabled the visitors winger Tom Pottage to intercept on his own 22 metres line to score a try out wide. Four minutes later Salisbury scored another converted try to lead by twelve points. Charlie Parish reduced the lead with a well taken drop goal . (3 – 12). However as soon as Salisbury got the ball their three quarters ran riot scoring four tries before the interval as Swans subsided to 3pts – 40 at the break.

Swans defence was no better at the start of the second half, conceding two tries in the first three minutes of the half. ( 3- 52). Swans at last put up some resistance but could not get further on the score sheet. Salisbury scored another try on the hour mark but a few minutes later Swans managed a try scored by centre Matt Roberts under the posts. Charlie Parish added the extras. (10 – 59). However with ten minutes to go Salisbury added their tenth try to give them the victory by 10pts – 64pts as Swans suffered this heavy defeat.
