RUGBY: Minety 26 Swindon 2nd 5
5:00pm Tuesday 15th October 2013 in Latest Sport News
MINETY went second in Dorset & Wilts One North after a storming first half performance.
The pack got things off to a fine start with a well-worked catch and drive from an attacking lineout, number eight Jack Ward breaking from the back to power over for the opening try of the game.
Ward then picked up from the base of a scrum on the 22 and popped to winger Elis Garland for the second.
Garland helped set up the third try, flinging a long pass to fellow winger Duncan Simpson, who galloped over and the bonus-point score arrived as Simpson left his marker for dead and scored in the corner.
Luke Radcliffe added a penalty before the break, but Swindon roared back in the second period, although it was 20 minutes before they broke through and Minety added a further penalty before the end.
Minety’s second string seconds got back to winning ways with a 31-3 success against Devizes 3rd in Dorset & Wilts Three North.
