Minety 2nd XV v Wootton Bassett 3rd XV
Dorset & Wilts Division 3 North
Spirited seconds come first
Minety 2nd XV 12 pts – Wootton Bassett 3rd XV 7 pts
Minety seconds showed what they were made of with a gutsy winning performance against a Wootton Bassett third team fortified by fixtureless second team players.
Playing downhill in the first half, Minety opened the scoring with a short-range try from prop Matt Oliver, driving over from a ruck.
Outside centre and Minety man-of-the-match Simon Newman broke several tackles as he sped in for his try, and a successful conversion kick by Gareth Peirce made it 12-nil to Minety at the end of the half.
