Dorset & Wilts Division 3 North
Dellam leads the demolition
Minety 2nd XV 93pts – Melksham 3rd XV 0pts
Minety seconds went top of Division 3 North with a comprehensive victory over their Melksham opponents.
Playing downhill in the first half, the home side wasted no time in opening up their opponents’ fragile defence. Dellam Murray led the way with a try in the corner and his team mates were soon following his example.
The score was 43-0 at half-time and even though the slope was against them in the second period, Minety remained dominant in all phases of play and continued to pile on the points.
Tim Vaughan and Mike Edwards each completed a hat-trick of tries while Dellam Murray and Andy Edwards ended with a brace of tries apiece. There were tries, too, for Lee Patterson, Luke Bush, Mike Scott and Milo Hartley, plus one for Dellam’s dad Steve Murray, who also kicked a conversion. Edwards added eight more to make up a final tally of 93 points for Minety.
