MATT Roberts's try double helped Swanage & Wareham register a 33-11 victory over Southern Counties South rivals Walcot at Bestwall.

Swans' second league win of the season ended a run of six defeats on the trot and came following a stirring second-half comeback.

Fellow strugglers Walcot raced into an 8-0 lead after 23 minutes thanks to a penalty and an unconverted try.

But Swans were rewarded for their endeavours when scrum-half Chris Tomes found a gap to score close to the posts with Stephen Woolley adding the extras to make it 8-7.

However, another penalty saw Walcot leading 11-7 at the break.

Swans forged ahead when new recruit Joshua Ovey went over for his first try for the club before Roberts's touchdown, converted by Woolley, saw the hosts open a 19-11 lead.

Roberts's second try was also converted by Woolley whose kick hit both uprights and bounced on the crossbar before going over.

Adam Smith scored Swans' fifth try with Woolley adding the conversion to seal their first win since the start of November.

Swans: A Smith, Phillips, Roberts, Elford, Spyers, Woolley, Tomes (Cottrell, 44), Audley, Ovey, Wyburgh (Peters, 52), Dicker (L Smith, 55), Penney, Jones, McCaffrey, Desmond.

Ellingham & Ringwood secured an important bonus point win in Hampshire One against Ventnor but had to work hard in difficult conditions.

Centre Matt Raybould opened the scoring with a good try under the posts which was converted by Josh Butcher.

Dominic Pitt then scored a superb individual try which was again converted by Butcher to open a 14-0 lead.

Ventnor fought back well and scored a try but Ellingham lock forward Tim Linford crashed over for a try which was again converted by Butcher.

Ventnor came back strongly with a converted try to make it 21-12 at half-time.

The wet and muddy conditions in the second half made it difficult for both sides but Ellingham’s Dean Young scored a good try to secure the bonus point. Butcher kicked the conversion before Ventnor scored a further try late on.

Chris Conacher's try double proved in vain for New Milton as they suffered a 13-10 defeat at the hands of London Three South West rivals Warlingham.

Conacher opened the scoring before Warlingham edged ahead thanks to a try and a penalty.

His second touchdown saw Milton regain the lead, only for Warlingham to hit back with a try almost straight from the kick off, with all the points coming in the first half.
