WARRIORS EARN WIN IN COMPETITIVE OUTING

The Gloucestershire Warriors may have earned the win but both sides will have gained much from this entertaining friendly.

WARRIORS EARN WIN IN COMPETITIVE OUTING

GLOUCESTERSHIRE WARRIORS 60 – 30 SWINDON ST GEORGE A

The match was arranged to give the Warriors’ young players more experience and to give Swindon’s newly-formed second team a competitive game.

It was certainly that and more as despite the scoreline blowing out in the third quarter, both sides showed neat touches in attack and determination in defence and both scrum halves scored hat-tricks as the sides shared 16 tries.

Despite conceding two early penalties, the Warriors were first on the scoreboard, Sam Goatley slicing through to score from distance before Dean Cooper dodged over from close in three minutes later.

There was barely ten minutes on the clock when Liam Rowe scored a simple try after his high kick had been comprehensively missed by Kieran Cox to get the Saints on the board.

Almost immediately, Goatley scored his second – though he was nearly dispossessed in the in-goal as he looked to improve the angle – and Cox added the goal for a 16-6 lead.

After four tries in the first 15 minutes, it came as something of a surprise that it took a quarter of an hour for the next to arrive. Both sides had chances the best coming to the Warriors but Charlie Gaulder was bundled into touch on the corner flag.

Finally, resistance was broken and Goatley completed his hat-trick, Cooper adding the extras. Rowe then used his sidestep and electric pace off the mark to grab his second try of the day but the Warriors captain Sean Roberts found a way through from close range to give the home side a 16-point interval lead.

Rowe grabbed his second score after the Warriors made a mess of the second half kick off but the home side then took control with four unanswered tries.

Hector Silva ran a good line for the first before he added a second, swatting off tackler after tackler to thump the ball down over the line. Roberts and Cooper exchanged passes before Cooper strolled over by the posts for the next and from Goatley’s long break, Ben Roche finished well in the corner.

Rowe stepped over for his third try but, after he had spilt the restart, Gaulder scored out wide from the resulting scrum.
Roche added the Warriors’ 11th try of the day with another neat finish, though the pass looked suspiciously forward. Cooper was wide with the difficult kick.

Swindon had the last word as Ben Bown snapped up a dropped ball in midfield and raced away to the posts with Gwyn Jenkins keeping his perfect record with the boot by adding his fifth goal of the day.

Both coaches agreed that the game was a good workout for their players and a rematch has been tentatively arranged for 30 July in Swindon.

Swindon also completed a double as their first team won 42-14 in Cheltenham to go top of Pool 2 in the West of England league.
