Holders Wimborne out of Dorset and Wilts Cup at first hurdle
DORSET and Wiltshire Cup holders Wimborne RFC crashed out of this year's competition at the first hurdle at the hands of Swanage and Wareham.
The Minstermen took an early lead at Bestwall thanks to a penalty from James Mikolajewski – but the Swans took the lead with the first try of the game.
From a line-out the hosts moved the ball wide - allowing Charlie Rowberry to score in the corner. The winger doubled his tally soon after with a fantastic solo try - giving the Swans a seven-point lead at the break.
Wimborne were on the backfoot from the restart - with a well-practised catch and drive routine allowing Dan Collins to score the home side's third try.

Wimborne struggled to break through the Swanage defence - but a quick penalty from Charlie Samways allowed replacement Will Wright to score a try in the corner - to bring Wimborne within one score of sealing a dramatic comeback.
However, the Swans pack remained strong and made sure of the win when Charlie Parish scored a penalty kick to secure their place in the next round.
The Minstermen hope to get back to winning ways when they visit Weymouth in Southern Counties South on Saturday.
