Cup triumph brings Rugby Club revenge
Wimborne 67pts, Dorchester 10
WIMBORNE rebounded from the previous week's loss in the league at Dorchester to record a resounding victory in the preliminary round of the Dorset & Wilts Cup at Leigh Park on Saturday.
With both sides fielding much-changed sides Wimborne quickly took the lead. Debutant fly-half Tom Moysey set up a lineout deep in the Dorchester 22 with a long touch-finding penalty and Andy Unwin, returning from his honeymoon, burrowed over for the try.
Five minutes later Moysey again found a long touch and this time Richie Brokenshire scored with Moysey converting.

Three more tries soon followed, the first set up by a strong run by Ben Hunt and the ball was quickly recycled and a kick ahead by Moysey was gathered by Tom Brown who touched down for the fly-half to convert. The next two scores both came from attacking lineouts as first Sean Murphy and then the impressive Declan Foley scored tries.
The sixth try of the half came just before the break when Brown ran a superb line to break through the centre for a try which Moysey converted to give Wimborne a 34-point lead at the interval.
Dorchester scored the first points of the second half when Wimborne conceded an unnecessary penalty. The kick was quickly taken and the visitors went over. Wimborne soon restored their advantage when Jimmy Brokenshire went through to score wide out.
A long break out of defence by Marcus Atkins set up Ben Hunt to score the next try and then second rower Matt Warwick went over for a score with Moysey converting both. Dorchester did not give up and scored the next try when Wimborne were dispossessed following a five metre scrum.
The intensity of the game slowed as both side made replacements but as the final whistle approached Wimborne scored two further tries. The first came when left wing Scott Maidment marked his first 15 debut with a searing burst of speed and then Brown was on hand to complete his hat-trick following a flowing move through many hands. Tom Moysey converted both to complete a memorable afternoon.
