WEYMOUTH boosted their claims for a second-place finish with a resounding win at rivals Warminster.

Both sides entered the clash level on points in Dorset & Wilts One South but the visiting Seasiders ran riot, winning the game by a 38-point margin.

And the gap could have been greater according to Weymouth skipper Mark Sample.

He said: “It was a really good result, especially after losing to Bridport the week before. We started really well and were on the scoresheet in the first couple of minutes.

“We all over them in the first 20 minutes and had we been a bit more clinical with our final pass we could have scored even more points.

“We knew Warminster would try and come back at us in the second half but we kept scoring and made sure we had the final say.

“We played some excellent rugby in patches. Ryan Lewendon put in a really strong performance while Julian Quick was everywhere and caused Warminster all kinds of problems.

“Another positive is that Adam Poole came back from injury to play his first game since October. He’s got a similar knee problem to Manchester United’s Owen Hargreaves and we have to take it steady with him, but it was nice to have him back.”

A kick over the top of the last defender from Dave Allan put Steven Calbraith in for Weymouth’s first try before the former got on the end of a Will Quick grubber kick to add try number two, with Tim Peplow adding the extras for a 12-0 lead.

Man of the match Julian Quick was next to cross the whitewash and in the second period brother Will got himself on the scoresheet with a quick-fire double, both of which were converted by Peplow.

James Borrington touched down after Will Quick was denied his treble before Allan notched his second try of the afternoon.

Borrington then followed suit by completing his brace, following an interception, and Peplow’s subsequent conversion rounded off a fine day for the third-placed Seasiders, who welcome Warminster to Monmouth Avenue this Saturday in an immediate rematch.
