Wimborne defeated at Trowbridge

Strong second-half comeback wasn't enough

Tries: Carter, Moysey, Ashton Kerley, Maidment
Conversions: Moysey(3)

Wimborne travelled to Trowbridge for only their second visit to the Wiltshire club’s impressive new ground.
In their only previous visit Wimborne found themselves on the end of a large defeat, and with 55 minutes of today's match gone, found themselves 0 - 31 down and staring at an equally one sided result. A four try fight back brought them a bonus point and perhaps left them thinking what might have been if the first half performance had been anywhere near such levels.
The week off probably did not help Wimborne at all, and with six changes in the team from the comprehensive win over Dockers, they looked out of shape and out of sorts in the first half. With a leg injury to Ollie Hamer, Tom Moysey moved into the centre and Ryan Maidment, back from a spell in Canada, came into the team. Joe Bartlett and Nathan Warren both returned after a number of weeks out. Veteran prop Russ Tinsdale was on the bench and entered the fray in the second half for his first outing for over two years.
Trowbridge racked up 17 unanswered points by half time and with two further converted tries early in the second half Wimborne were on the brink. They showed great spirit though by not lying down and only permitted the home side three more points via a penalty goal. In response Wimborne ran in four tries of their own to secure a losing bonus point.
Ed Carter burrowed over from a driving maul. Tom Moysey was on the end of a sweeping move after Ashton Kerley broke from deep in his own half. Maidment then put Kerley over in the corner and then wriggled through for the bonus point score himself.
There was still time left when Wimborne could have secured a second losing bonus point but a couple of near misses went begging in the final minutes.
