RUGBY: Minety 10 Bradford on Avon 5

First published in Sport

MINETY put in a gutsy 15-man performance to overcome their county rivals in Dorset & Wilts One North.

Bradford had the advantage of the slope in the first half and when Minety spilled ball in their own 22, the visitors were onto it, scooping it up and flicking it to flanker Sam Awdry, who skated through desperate defence for the opening try.

Minety worked their way across the halfway line and executed a classic catch and drive from a lineout, mauling hooker Wes Clamp going over the line for the levelling try.

Playing downhill after the break, Minety swarmed all over their opponents, driving them back in the scrums.

A home penalty attempt failed but when Bradford gained little ground with the clearance kick, inside centre Michael New galloped down the touchline to score.
