Dorset & Wilts Div Three North

Trowbridge III 41

Minety II 0

SHORT-HANDED Minety seconds were soundly beaten by Trowbridge thirds despite the hosts’ sporting loan of three players after the visitors arrived with only 12 men.

Though the new front row recruits put in a sterling effort and the visitors fought hard, their disorganised defence proved insufficient to hold back their hosts.

Injuries gradually reduced the visitors’ numbers in the second half. Scrums were uncontested but Minety ended back with only 12 players on the field.

In total, Trowbridge ran in seven tries. There was a brace for Ryan Jones and touchdowns for Ben Deadman, Tom Davies, George Leat, Josh Hayden and Sam Butcher. Paul Taylor kicked three conversions.
