TWO brothers crossed swords when Royal Wootton Bassett Vets played host to the touring Mold RFC side on Saturday.

Mold had expressed an interest in visiting the town famous for its role in the repatriation of Armed Forces – and it also allowed the opportunity for some sibling rivalry.

Owen Richardson, 32, is Bassett's second team captain and Clubman of the Year; his 34-year-old brother Mark was one of the tourists.

What took place was a try spectacular and while Owen played his part in Bassett's handsome 60-5 victory, Mark won the brotherly bragging rights as the only one to get on the score sheet, when he went over for Mold's only try

Bassett RFC will be running a 3rd XV next season and welcome any interested players to contact the club.
