Successful Marlborough team before Saturday's match at Wimborne
Wimborne 32 - 37 Marlborough
On Saturday, Marlborough made their way down to Wimborne on the back of a good win over Trowbridge the previous week and opened the scoring after the first five minutes of play with an impressive long-range penalty kick from Will Grant in testing conditions, 3-0. Within three minutes Wimborne struck back with a converted try following some poor defending by the visitors. The score was now 7 -3 to the home side.
