MAX Tipping racked up 18 points and bagged his first senior try in Wimborne's 28-19 win over Oxford Harlequins in South West One East.

Wimborne got off and running at Leigh Park when Marcus Atkins broke into the visitors' 22 and scrum-half Tipping dived over and then converted.

Tipping extended the lead with a penalty, only for Harlequins to hit back with a score from a well-rehearsed lineout move, before a converted try gave them a 12-10 advantage.

Deep into first-half stoppage time, a Tipping penalty put Wimborne 13-12 in front.

After the restart, Mitch Stainer and Joe Bartlett broke from their own half and Ryan Maidment took the final pass and touched down out wide.

A converted try edged Oxford into a narrow lead but the final quarter was Wimborne’s.

Following good work by Atkins, the ball was swiftly recycled and Paul Roberts just made the line. Tipping converted and soon after swept over a further penalty to complete the scoring.

Minstermen: Bartlett, Stainer, Roberts, Mason, Mitchell, Maidment, Tipping, Foley, Degeura, Walton, Starr, Lofts, Galdes, Atkins, Davies. Replacements: Ashton Kerley, Warren, Vivian.

Swanage & Wareham climbed out of the Southern Counties South relegation zone after claiming a losing bonus point from their 12-10 defeat at Corsham.

The visitors twice took the lead at Lacock Road but were eventually overhauled by the high-flying Wiltshire outfit.

Hooker Joshua Ovey went over to register the opening try for Swans.

George Beavis powered over at the opposite end and Kalif Barnes's conversion had the hosts 7-5 ahead at half-time.

After the break, second-row Joe Desmond scored Swans' second try but after Alex Twigg touched down at the other end, Corsham landed victory.

Swans: Smith (Barton, 45), Phillips, Roberts, Elford, Spyers, Woolley, Hardy, Audley (Scott, 62), Ovey, Wyburgh, Dicker, Desmond, Dennett, McCaffrey, Jones (Foskitt, 68).

Will Machin's try double proved in vain for New Milton as they suffered a 27-17 defeat at the hands of London Three South West rivals Old Tiffinians at Normans Way.

Machin's brace, coupled with a fine conversion from Ryan Morrell, saw New Milton reach the break on level terms at 12-12.

But Tiffs dominated for long periods in the second half before Ben Russell broke through to score New Milton's third try in the closing stages.

Adam Harrison touched down for Ellingham & Ringwood II in their 17-5 loss to Sherborne II, while Ellingham III won 36-17 against Lytchett Minster II.

Jack Norris scored a hat-trick, Will Searle grabbed two and Matt Painter also touched down, while Zack Barnes added three conversions.
