Swans crash to another heavy defeat
SWANAGE & Wareham have yet to register a victory from their opening three league matches of the 2012-13 campaign.
Following heavy defeats at the hands of Marlow (44-25) and Newbury (66-0), Swans failed to get off the mark against Old Centralians on Saturday.
In the first match between the two clubs, Joe Desmond and Elford scored tries and Charlie Parish kicked a penalty.
But those efforts proved in vain as Old Centralians ran out 26-13 victors to leave Swans bottom of the table.
Swans: Wilcox, Blackmore, Triniman, Cotterell, Chadwick, Parish, Armstrong, Sheldrake, Elford, Wyburgh (Andrews, 24), Burgess, Richings (Jones, 49), Corsie, Tomes (Large, 40), Desmond.
- Wimborne slipped to a 28-10 defeat at Dorchester in Southern Counties South.
The All Blacks took an early 10-point lead at Coburg Road thanks to a penalty from Jamie Tryska and try from Steve King.
But that was as good as it got for the Leigh Park outfit, with Dorchester turning the screw to run out comfortable winners.
All Blacks: Hunt, Murphy, R Brokenshire, Napier, Jordan, King, Morris, Foley, Llewellyn, Tryska, J Brokenshire, Brown, Walter, Maltman, Epapara, Busby, Roberts, Priest.
- Ellingham & Ringwood got their London Division Three season off to a stunning start with a 43-27 triumph at home to Winchester.
Tries from Joe Evans, Dan Stewart, Rob Saltrick (2), Ross Whale and Ali Bennett and extras from John Firkin (three conv, two pen) and Charlie Cockram (one pen) saw the Es home.
- In Southern Counties South, Oakmeadians won 27-22 at home to Wootton Bassett, while East Dorset beat Puddletown 22-15 in Dorset & Wilts Two South. North Dorset, meanwhile, suffered a heavy 56-0 reverse at Sidmouth in South West One West.
