Wimborne 25 Trowbridge 15
WIMBORNE Rugby Club continued a winning start to their Southern Counties South campaign with a victory over Trowbridge
The Wiltshire side made a bright start at Leigh Park – but the Minstermen took the lead after the visitors were reduced to 14 men following a yellow card.
Nick Bolton's penalty opened the scoring before Charlie Samways took a quick tap penalty in front of the Trowbridge posts to go over for his first senior try. Bolton added the conversion to give the hosts a ten-point lead.

Wimborne thought a driving maul had given them a second try, but the referee ruled the ball had been held up, and no try was awarded. The visitors ended the first period on a high with a converted try reducing the deficit to three points.
Trowbridge took the lead early in the second period with an unconverted try, and a penalty kick from each side ensured the away side held a slender lead midway through the second half.
Wimborne captain Steve King powered his way over the line to restore the lead, with Bolton's conversion handing the home side a five-point advantage.
The Minstermen started to take control and replacement Jack Mason fought off two tackles to score a try on his senior debut. The home side hung on to maintain their unbeaten record and third straight win of their league campaign.
