Bournemouth pre - season


SWANAGE & WAREHAM 21pts BOURNEMOUTH 2nd 56pts


Swanage & Wareham entertained a Bournemouth XV on Thursday evening, but it was scheduled to be a game against Bournemouth 2nd XV, but the visitors had several first XV players in their line up.

The game started with both teams setting up position to score, but defences prospered and it was not until the 15th minute when Bournemouth scored with a pass to the winger. This was converted. Swans immediately replied with a maul as Kirk Jones powered over the try line. Steve Woolley added the extras(7pts each).

After a break both sides put on some substitutes, but this benefitted Bournemouth most. The visitors scored two tries before the half hour mark taking the score to 7pts – 21pts, and Swans made some ground, but the Bournemouth fly half kicked Swans backwards so that it enabled them to catch/drive, or with just a few phases to pass along the three-quarters, to register two more tries before 50 minutes(7pts-35pts), before they stopped for a break.

Bournemouth made it 42pts three minutes after the break, but a penalty to Swans took them into the visitor’s 22 and from a line out Swans added their second try by prop forward Zach Wyburgh diving over. Woolley converted(14pts – 42pts). Swans had plenty of the play, but a breakaway had Bournemouth adding their seventh try. A few minutes from the end of play Bournemouth put their score to 56 pts, but from the restart a move to winger George Crouch had him beating a couple of defenders to score half way out. Woolley added the extras.(21pts – 56). It was a good work out for Swans, and they probably learned a lot playing against a superior side.
