Dorset and Wilts Division 1 North action returns to Minety on Saturday 13th January when Minety 1st XV take on Warminster in the first match of the second half of the season.
5th placed Minety, with 33 points from their 11 matches, face up to 3rd placed Warminster (with 38 points from theri first 11 matches) at Minety Fields with a kick off of either 2pm or 2.15pm.
The top four teams in the league are all away from home, but Combe Down, Bradford and Avonvale are all expected to win against much lower placed teams. This gives Minety a chance to make up significant ground on Warminster and stay in touch with the top of the table.
The last time the two teams met was in the league back on 16th September at Warminster when the home team dominated the first half but had to hold off a spirited comeback in teh second to win by 31 – 22.
Tom Claxton’s team will have to be on their best form if they are to beat classy opposition on what is likely to be a very muddy playing surface at Minety.
Full match report will be available on this site on Sunday and MTV will return with the match action next Wednesday.
