Minety 2nd XV v Combe Down 2nd XV


Dreamers endure a Combe Down come down

Dorset & Wilts Division 3 North

Minety 2nd XV 7pts – Combe Down 2nd XV 38pts

A strong Combe Down team proved too much for Minety’s second string.

Short of players due to injuries and late cry-offs, Minety struggled against highly mobile opposition. Coming downhill in the first half, Combe Down secured four tries without conceding any and the sides turned round at the break with the visitors 24 points ahead.

Hard tackling and the steep slope were not enough to stop Combe Down scoring in the second half either. They added two more tries while Minety’s only points came from a try by Will Howse that was converted by Andy Edwards.
