Sat 12 Jan 14:15 - South West Division - Wadworth 6X Dorset & Wilts 2 North Full time

Swindon RFC 2nd 7 - 24 Frome RFC 2nd

Having secured a season highlight victory at home earlier in the season (64-0) Frome knew this would be a tough encounter facing Swindon on their home ground...

Having secured a season highlight victory at home earlier in the season (64-0) Frome knew this would be a tough encounter facing Swindon on their home ground and from the kickoff, it was Swindon who started the stronger team pressing Frome, with some excellent attacking intent, deep into their 22.

Frome defended resolutely and managed to hold Swindon at bay. After 10 minutes Frome were able to counter attacked with both the Forward and Backline stretching Swindon right across the field. The visitors managed to spot a mismatch on the blind side and Frome Fly Half Ben Eley outpaced the opposition Fullback to score in the corner.

The 2nd try came from a lineout on the opposition 22 which saw the Frome pack drive their opposition back to their try line. After patient phases, Second Row Simon Travers quickly picked and went, taking 4 players with him over the line.

Swindon got back into the game following multiple penalties which led to the No.8 diving over after a build up of phases.

Having not played a competitive fixture since the Christmas the visitors knew they required another push to get the game back on track. The next try saw the Frome backline, organised excellently by Club Captain John Benstead, swing the ball out to Winger John Spencer used his pace to beat both the opposition winger and fullback to score in the corner.

Half Time: Swindon RFC 2nd 7 - 17 Frome RFC 2nd

Frome started the second half the better team and kept the pressure on the Swindon line. However, Frome can be thankful for the covering tackles of Benstead, who stopped multiple counter attacks. Frome scored the final try of the day with an interception by Outside Centre & Man of the Match Ben Tiley who outpaced the defence to score under the posts.

Final Score: Swindon RFC 2nd 7 - 24 Frome RFC 2nd

Special mention must go to Inside Centre James Gallop who produced a mammoth defensive display. Frome could, and perhaps should have had more, Winger Steve Morris knocked on when running onto a sublime kick over the top by Jordan Talbot. Matt McCarthy forgot what game his was playing and tried dribbling the ball halfway up the pitch only to be caught by the opposition fullback who dotted it down for the final whistle to go. An outstanding, resilient performance all round. 13 wins from 13, bring on Trowbridge next.

The Frome RFC 2nd xv play Trowbridge RFC 3rd xv at home on Saturday looking to continue there great run of form and 14 out of 14.
