Your News Swanage & Wareham 20 - Marlow 25

Swanage & Wareham welcomed old friends and rivals Marlow to Bestwall last Saturday.

Swans got off to a fine start pressing the visitors back in their own half, and within five minutes scored their first try as a move all along the backs had winger Lewis Oliver turning the ball inside to full back Paul Dunsford to score a try in the corner. Six minutes later Swans increased their lead with a penalty by Charlie Parish (8 – 0). Marlow came back into the game as centre Mikes Noble scored with a penalty on the half hour mark. Almost immediately Swans increased the lead with a well struck kick by centre Darren Wilcox to winger Jason Chadwick who picked up and scored in the corner.(13 – 3). However the visitors replied just before the break as winger Ben Veitch scored a try in the corner. 13pts – 8pts at half time.

The second half started disastrously for Swans, as within two minutes a break by Marlow centre Matt Saunders had him scoring a try under the posts. Noble added the extras.(13 – 15). That was not all, for three minutes later a second try in the corner by Ben Veitch, converted by Noble had Marlow leading by 22pts – 13pts. Swans played well for most of the rest of the game but too many mistakes at the break down stopped them scoring. Noble added a penalty for Marlow with three minutes to go, but at the death of the game, Swans added a third try with the last move of the game with second row Dan Collins going over from a driving maul. Parish added the conversion to leave Swans with a losing bonus point having been defeated by 25pts – 20 pts.
