Rugby: Melksham 34 v Warminster 15 Second half fight back earns impressive win

Warminster started with great intent from a chip overhead, collected and run in for their first converted try of the game.

Melksham were slow to get through the gears until a ball to the outside centre, Matt Glover, was too hard to stop charging in from deep. Callum Hurn adding the extras to level it.

Handling errors from both sides dogged the first half, the home team compounding matters giving away a penalty in their own 22 to see the visitors up by three points at half time. Melksham gradually found their momentum in the second half, Hurn slotting the posts from a penalty to level the score again.

Confidence returning, a ball whipped out to winger Luke Cador outpacing the defence to score, Hurn adding the extras. Minutes later Hurn hit another well struck penalty to take the home team clear by two scores.

Warminster had picked up their game, but it wasn’t enough to stop centre Kieran Jenkins crashing through to score, Hurn slotting the posts to keep easing away from Warminster.

The continued pressure from the home team was rewarded when Captain Charlie Radcliffe, in control of the ball from a maul, burst forward to score the bonus point try, Hurn adding the conversion. Warminster had fought hard all through the game and worked their way up field to score the final points of the game in the last minute. Melksham securing the win 34-15.
