SWANAGE & WAREHAM 14pts DEVIZES 48pt
Swans welcomed Devizes to Bestwall last Saturday, and the visitor’s class clearly showed.
In the first ten minutes it was pretty even, with Swans dominating the scrums, but once the ball was
fed to the Devizes backs after 12 minutes they scored their first converted try. Swans responded but could not score, and once again the Devizes centres crossed the try line after 18 minutes, (0pts – 14pts). Before half time the visitors added two more tries making the half time score Swans 0pts Devizes 24pts.
The carnage continued into the second half, with Devizes adding tries after 43 and 46 minutes taking the score to 0pts -36pts. However a couple of penalties to Swans took them into the visitors 22, and with Swans still dominating the scrums, Devizes collapsed a scrum on their own line and the referee awarded Swans a penalty try.(7pts-36pts). For a few minutes Swans were on top and after 62 minutes after a series of
scrums replacement hooker Craig Foskett went over for a try. Steve Woolley converted(14pts -36pts). In the last ten minutes Devizes added two more tries to their total bringing the final score to Swans 14pts Devizes 48pts.
