the middle of the park and the players not wanting to run to far until there

missed opportunities on both sides where the players had not played together

(or had not played) as a unit for some time, and the first half finished


In the second half Weymouth made some changes to Ensure that all of the

players that turned up took some part in the game, Including Father and Son

pairing of Prop and Hooker "Tony & Dan Curley". These changes where quickly

paid dividends when after a flowing move involving all of the back row

resulted in "Anthony Cowburn" crossing the line in the corner to give

Weymouth the lead, Veteran fly half "Andy Tanner" Duly missed the

conversation. From the restart Weymouth attacked with renewed vigour and

where rewarded again with a try from " Glyn Arnold" under the posts and Andy

Tanner completed the conversation (could not miss from that range. Paignton

as the Weymouth legs where beginning to tire and the where duly rewarded

with a try under the posts which was duly converted. Weymouth Scored

another try from " Bill Gates " which was easily converted by "Andy Tanner"
