Minety 2nd XV v Devizes 3rd XV

Saturday 24 March 2012

Devizes hang on

Dorset & Wilts Division 3 North

Minety 2nd XV 17pts – Devizes 3rd XV 20pts

Minety seconds came back strongly in the second half but still couldn’t catch their determined opponents.

Playing down the slope in the first half, Devizes thirds ran in three tries. Slow to get under way, the home side’s response was a single try from lock Ralph Wells which made it 5-15 at the break.

Increasing the pressure in the second half, Minety attempted to close the gap. Wells scored his second try and there was a try too from Minety’s man of the match, flanker and ace tackler Vishal Nashi, who crossed the whitewash with three opponents vainly trying to bring him down.

But Devizes scored a fourth try and the final whistle saw the visitors win by a narrow three-point margin.
