Report: Wimborne RFC put in thumping display to thrash Ivel Barbarians
WIMBORNE Rugby Club cruised to victory against Southern Counties South strugglers Ivel Barbarians at Leigh Park.
The 82-8 scoreline didn’t flatter the Minstermen as they dominated from start to finish.
Wimborne were able to rest several players ahead of next weekend’s cup clash with Swanage and Wareham – and still scored 14 tries against Ivel - including four from Jim Brokenshire and two from Will Wright.
“I’m pleased in that we got through it injury-free, pleased that we were able to rest players and rotate players” said Wimborne head coach Jim Kelly.

“We’ve got a tough game coming up next week, so it was always in our minds to keep our players as fresh for next week’s game.”
The All Blacks looked like scoring every time they had possession, keeping the ball in hand.
The visitors struggled to cope with the confident passing lines from the Wimborne backs, and were punished as the Minstermen scored six tries before the break.
“The scrum went very well as did the set plays. We looked threatening and dangerous – but we made too many handling errors” added Kelly.
“We need to work on our running lines, and changing the angles on the attack. On the whole, there’s no complaints with 82-8.”
“I think the team as a whole gelled – Ryan Maidment was especially good today. He had a fabulous game. He was the standout player as far as I was concerned. Andy Unwin was also brilliant in the pack for us.”
Wimborne, who have won every game this season are in second place in the Southern Counties South league table. The Dorset side are three points behind leaders Wells RFC.
