Minety 2nd XV v Calne 2nd XV

Dorset & Wilts Division 3 North

A cricket score for the Dreamers

Minety 2nd XV 53 pts – Calne 2nd XV 3 pts

Fitter and faster than their opponents, Minety seconds ran away with this home tie against their counterparts from Calne.

Although the visitors opened the scoring with a penalty goal, that proved to be their only source of points in what turned out to be a highly one-sided affair. Minety had the better pack and were better organised and markedly fleeter of foot than their opponents. Working as a team, they consistently converted possession into points.

In all, the home side scored nine tries, four of them going to the outstanding Luke Radcliffe. There was a brace apiece for Andrew Hibbard and Andrew Tucker and one for the ever nimble Milo Hartley.

This Saturday, Minety seconds travel south to play the Warminster 2nd XV.
