Dorset & Wilts Division 3 North
Dreamers overwhelm Melksham
Minety 2nd XV 72pts – Melksham 3rd XV nil
An inexperienced Melksham back division wilted under pressure from their hosts, allowing Minety to run in a train-load of tries.
Up against a competent Melksham pack, Minety scrummaged well and kicked shrewdly to wear out their heavier opponents. When they set out to exploit the territory and possession they had gained, the young Melksham threequarters were unable to contain them and the game became a precession.
Minety scored 12 tries in total. Andy Edwards ran in five and kicked six conversions, while Milo Hartley and Sean Richards scored a brace of tries apiece. The other try scorers were Luke Smith, Lee Patterson and Andy Brown.
