Here are the results and tables from Dorset and Wilts Division 1 North and 3 North, both featuring Minety teams.
In D&W1N all four top team won, Bradford mainatining their unbeaten record in a close 13-8 victory over Minety, but dropping their first Try bonus point of the season in doing so. Combe Down kept up the pressure at the top with a comprehensive win ove struggling Wootton Bassett while Warminster saw off Supermarine by 94-5 at home. 4th placed Avonvale, whose only loss of the seaswon was at Warminster on the opening day, enjoyed a win over struggling Pewsey Vale whose sole win this season has been cancelled out by a concession recently against Combe Down.
The real surprise of the round was the 111 points scored by Chippenham, whose form this season has been very up and down; convincing wins in their last two home matches have been more than balanced by some heavy defeats on the road.
Saturday’s fine win by the 2nd XV over Melksham keeps Matt Stone’s team at the top of the middle part of the table. All four teams above Minety won matches against teams from the lower half of the table.
