FULL-BACK Lewis Munster bagged 27 points as Wimborne overpowered Chippenham 42-21 in South West One East.

Chippenham had been responsible for the Minstermen’s heaviest league defeat when the teams met in December last year, but the visitors put those memories firmly behind them this time round.

Wimborne opened the scoring within three minutes when a flowing passing move resulted in Rob Best touching down. Munster converted and added a penalty.

Chippenham hit back with a converted try but a penalty from Munster put Wimborne 13-7 ahead at the break.

After the restart, Munster scored under the posts and converted himself, although the lead was brought back to six points by a converted try from the hosts.

Munster grabbed his second and then, after patient build up, Ashton Kerley outsprinted the defence to touch down.  The imperious Munster converted both and then kicked another penalty.

Chippenham scored a converted try late on and there was still time for Ollie Hamer to touch down after a pirouetting run. Munster added the extras.

Minstermen: Davies, Holman, Edwards, Best, Foley, Degeura, Kimber, King, Tipping, Roberts, Kerley, Mason, Hamer, Young, Munster. Replacements: Case, Taylor Adams.

NEW Milton kicked off the Hampshire Premier campaign with a thrilling 43-33 win over Tottonians II at Ashley.

Harry Busby touched down inside a minute and Ali Gunn converted, with Nathan Smith soon speeding away to score in the corner.

Tottonians pushed over from a line-out for a converted try but Gunn responded by breaking through to cross the whitewash.

The visitors bulldozed over for a second time and then levelled from a penalty goal.

However, Milton went into the break 24-17 up when Smith got his second try and Adam Lavis added the extras.

After the restart, a Tottonians penalty reduced the lead but following a rapid backs move at the other end, Gunn completed his brace of tries.

After another penalty from the visitors, Chris Conacher crossed and Charlie Osborn did the same following a trademark mazy run, Lavis converting both.

A couple of further Tottonians tries gave them a bonus point.

Milton squad: Booker, Wright, Frampton, Steers, Coe, George, Treacey, Royley, Lavis, Gunn, H Busby, Conacher, Smith, P Busby, Osborn, Santa Maria, J Busby.

SWANAGE & Wareham ran in no fewer than 16 tries as they destroyed Bridport 96-0 in Dorset & Wilts One South.

Relegated last season, Swans’ determination to get back up was underlined by four-try hauls from Harry Spyers and Tom Haw.

Lee Hardy, Matt Roberts and George Pavey crossed twice and Charlie Rowberry and Charlie Joynt also got in on the act.

Swanage & Wareham II lost 15-7 at Ellingham & Ringwood II.
