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.
