RUGBY: Melksham 2nd 23 Marlborough 38
MARLBOROUGH scored three tries in each half as they maintained their perfect winning record in the league.
Playing with the elements in the first half, the visitors opened the scoring in side two minutes when Amori Nailago, Waisale Navunidakua and Nathan Morgan combined to set wing Laurence Baker free to score.
Navunidakua and Jack Lynd also scored in the first half, Nathan Morgan adding two conversions.
Conditions deteriorated in the second half to such an extent that the players were forced off for a 10-minutes period because of hailstones.
But Nailago, Baker got a 2nd, and Lynd again crossed after the break, Morgan adding another two conversions to help wrap up the bonus-point.
