SWANS GAME v AVONVALE

AVONVALE  17pts SWANAGE & WAREHAM 26pts

 

            Swanage & Wareham had to travel to Bathford for the game at Avonvale for this postponed fixture from last week, and after a scare in the second half came away with a bonus point victory.

                        It was a curious start to the game as Swans spent the first 20 minutes in the Avonvale 22, but could not score. It was a combination of mishandling, wrong options, and good defence by the Avonvale team but after a line out to Swans, flank forward Tom Holland powered over the line to give Swans a 5pt advantage. Fly half Will Slack added the extras. A couple of penalties took the hosts into the Swans 22 when from a few phases and a line out Avonvale secured a try in the corner after 30 minutes. From the restart Swans were back into the Avonvale 22, but could not increase their lead so at half time it was Avonvale 5pts Swans 7pts.

            It was a different start to the second half as Swans worked their way into the Avonvale 22, and from a scrum the ball was passed all along Swans three-quarters to winger Ollie Dillon to score a try in the corner. Will Slack converted(5pts-14pts). The Avonvale fly half had a good boot on him, and from a penalty he put Swans in their own 5 metres line and with a drive they scored a try in the corner.(10pts- 14pts). after 50 minutes. Swans started to give away a few penalties and after 62 minutes they gave one to the opposition which they put into the corner and with a catch/drive move Avonvale scored close to the posts. This was converted ( 17pts -14pts) Swans continued to attack and on 70 minutes from a maul the ball came back to full back Lewis Reeves who forced his way over the try line. Will Slack added the extras (17pts – 21pts). Swans were still looking for the bonus point try and put Avonvale under severe pressure but eventually they got it as once again the ball came back to Lewis Reeves and he scored a try out wide. Final Score  Avonvale 17pts Swanage & Wareham 26pts.
