Trowbridge RFC 3rd 5 - 36 Frome RFC 2nd

Frome RFC 2nd xv made the short trip to Trowbridge at the weekend....

After good preparation Frome started the better team within the opening minutes, but an injury to an opposition player forced a pitch move and both teams to restart again. After various disruptions, making the game very stop start, Frome failed to fall into their usual game pattern which has devastated previous teams so far this season. The first try of the day came from Frome after 5 minutes, the Frome forwards had battled hard into the opposition 22, this allowed Hooker Geoff Taylor to take a crash ball and force his way over the try line.

The next try came due to excellent scrummaging from the Frome forwards, whom dominated the scrum all game. A quick pick by Frome No.8 Stuart Elliott drew in defenders and allowed Scrum Half Steven Morris to step the opposition Winger and score under the posts.

The remainder of the half was hard fought with good Trowbrige tackling and the wet conditions leading to Frome frustrations. However, thanks to a number of successive penalties, Frome found themselves in the opposition 22 again and opted to tap and go quickly. Elliott took the ball in with a trademark hard run eating up the defence. This allowed Flanker James Milton to take the ball, and with quick feet, find a small amount of space to dive over the line.

Half Time: Trowbridge RFC 3rd 0 - 19 Frome RFC 2nd

Frome started the half brightly. Fullback James Gallop found himself in space around breakdown and bulldozed over to score.

Frome were starting to find their shape and Trowbridge were struggling to handle them. A lovely chip over the top by Morris found Winger Jordan Talbot who stepped and weaved past a number of opposition players to score.

Again dropped balls and Frome errors prevented them from truly running away with this fixture. The final Frome try started with a play from Talbot, who was now playing at Scrum Half switch the play to go blind and find man of the match Loukas Ives, a lovely draw and pass saw Prop Keiran Storey receive the pass with grass to run into outpaced the opposition fullback to score.

With the final whistle fast approaching, the Trowbridge fullback intercepted a short pop ball going to a Frome forward and, despite James Gallops electric pace at fullback, managed to run the length of the pitch and score. A well deserved try and a resilience performance from the home side.

Final Score: Trowbridge RFC 3rd 5 - 36 Frome RFC 2nd

Captain Dean Marshall commented "I found the game frustrating as the team never really “got going” as they have in previous weeks. However, to score 36 points, away from home, only concede 5 and secure the maximum bonus points and still be disappointed shows the high standards the Frome RFC 2nds have set themselves this season."

The Frome RFC 2nds have a gap in fixtures this weekend as they prepare for the biggest contest to date when they host current league leaders Marlborough RFC 2nds (Nomads) on October 20th. With Frome currently sitting second in the league with only points difference separating the two sides.
