On a dramatic night of rugby for Minety RFC the 1st XV travelled to Swindon for their re-arranged fixture under floodlights and came away with the vital win and bonus point to secure 4th place in the league, behind Bradford, Combe Down and Avonvale, but crucially above Warminster.
The final result at Swindon was Minety 39 Swindon 14 (the match was played at Swindon but was actually a Minety home match). The village side scored 5 tries in all.
In the evening’s other fixture, the 2nd XV put up a valiant fight against the runaway division champions Corsham but eventually went down by 26-10 at Minety Fields.
A full match report on the 1st XV game will be available on this site tonight or tomorrow morning.
The 1st XV have one final match, away at Avonvale, on Saturday afternoon.
