It didn’t take Wimborne long to add to their lead when Sean Murphy offloaded the ball to Maidment – who burst through the Frome defence at speed to score. Bolton added the conversion to give the visitors a 12-0 lead.
Jim Brokenshire and Tabard went over to seal the bonus point before the break, and secure a very healthy lead. Frome hit back with an unconverted try – but still trailed by 22 points after 40 minutes.
After half time, Wimborne were reduced to 14 men when Murphy was yellow carded – but the hosts couldn’t take advantage.
Frome were frustrated during a scrappy second half with both sides making mistakes. Wimborne finished on a high when Wright powered over for his first senior try to cap an impressive win.
Wimborne host Ivel Barbarians at Leigh Park on Saturday. Kick off is at 3pm.
