could not score. The game was evenly matched during the first half, until a penalty to Swans in the last minute had fly half Matt Spencer slotting the ball over so the half time score was Swans 3pts Yeovil 5pts

Swans came back with a couple of penalties taking them into the Yeovil 22,and a quick move had full back Rory Ferguson scoring close to the posts. Spencer added the extras.(13pts – 10pts). It was mostly Swans on the offensive and after 62 minutes from a scrum close to the Yeovil line Swans no.8 Marcus Seaton powered his way over the try line.(18pts-10pts). From a Yeovil penalty which did not reach touch, Swans full back Rory Ferguson took the ball in his own half, broke clear, shrugged off three tackles and scored a try under the posts for a fine individual score.
