Corsham RFC 1st 34 - 27 Frome RFC 1st

Frome RFC 1st travelled t o Wiltshire side Corsham RFC 1st on Saturday....

Frome started strongly looking to carry on from last weeks performance and were exerting pressure on the home line but a loose ass went to ground on the opposition 5 metre line with the home Winger reacting the quickest sprinting 90 metres to score a converted try.

Corsham continue to display some great rugby which has seen them perform well in the league and with two more breakaway tries and Frome were suddenly 21 nil down . However the visitors continued to press with Forwards carrying well supported by hard running Centre partnership of Alistair Frost and Calum Bonallo. This build up of play finally resulted in a try for Frome Winger Campbell Taylor in the corner, unfortunately the conversion going just wide. this left the visitors 21-5 down at half time.

Half Time: Corsham RFC 1st 21 - 5 Frome RFC 1st

The task ahead got even harder when Corsham converted a penalty and then capitalised on Frome defensive mix up to increase the lead to 29-5 but the resilience of Frome that has been showcased all season came into play and after a great run by Centre Frost followed up by powerful runs by the Forwards including Man of the Match Mickael Lanes led to an opening for prop Elliott Bowler to cross over. Frome continued to dominate the contact and set piece and from 5 metre scrum a massive effort by the entire pack allowed No.8 Phil Meenan to crash over for a try.

The visitors momentum was briefly halted when the home side broke away to score and increase the deficit to 34-15 . Frome knew that a huge effort was required to get something from the game and up'd the pressure on the home line this resulted in a bonus point try for replacement prop Dan Chaventre. Frome continued to press and with time running out took a scrum from a penalty and after several phases of play Bowler went over for his second try. This was converted by John Benstead for Frome to end the game with a second bonus point.

Final Score: Corsham RFC 1st 34 - 27 Frome RFC 1st

Head Coach Toby Culff commented "It was fitting, i suppose, to end the season this way. Once again, we dominated possession and played some superb rugby for the last 60 minutes. Unfortunately, we decided to give Corsham - a very good side - a 21 point head start. As has happened away against Trowbridge and Marlborough in recent weeks, the team fought back heroically and never gave up, but they'd left themselves too much to do. The frustration, as it has been all season, was that we gifted points to the opposition through moments of carelessness, poor concentration, ill discipline and a failure to perform basic skills; most notably a failure to tackle. With all that said, the team once again proved its ability to compete with the very best teams in the league, and its first class character and deep reserves of determination and courage. This is a team which, in the next two seasons, can and will win the league."

This finished off a mixed season for the Frome RFC 1st XV who finished 6th in Southern Counties South having sustained a multitude of injury woes but led to the opportunity to field and blood new players. The Club would like to thank all of the Supporters, Sponsor, Players and staff for another season.
