Minety’s fine 32 – 15 win over Warminster has moved the village team up to 9th in the table, one point above Calne, 8 above Marlborough and 13 above bottom club Bradford on Avon.
Surprise wins for 8th placed Trowbridge at 6th placed Frome and for 7th placed Chippenham at 5th placed Sutton Benger has tightened up the middle of the table but wins for top of the table Avonvale (53pts), Melksham (49pts) and Royal Wootton Bassett (47) probably means that the winner of the league will come from one of these three teams, 4th placed Warminster gaining nothing from their defeat at Minety Wadworth Dorset & Wilts Division 1 NorthAvonvale34:0CalneFrome7:22TrowbridgeMelksham48:5Bradford on AvonMinety 32:15WarminsterR W Bassett54:12MarlboroughSutton Benger7:28Chippenham
In Division 3 Minety conceded their match at Warminster through lack of available players (I believe we had just 3 when the decision was made). Only one match was played in Division 3, with 5th placed Cricklade defeating 9th placed Swindon. Minety’s concession costs them another 5 point penalty and leaves the village side 7th on 0 points, 24 points behind 6th placed Cricklade and 21 points behind bottom club Melksham.
