RUGBY: Combe Down 10 Bradford on Avon 16

First published in Sport News

BRADFORD on Avon produced a solid second-half effort to maintain their push for honours in Dorset & Wilts One North.

Having not played for a month the visitors were understandably rusty in the early stages as Down defied both the slope and the sun to take an early lead with a try.

Dan Bright, playing at inside centre, got Bradford on the board with a penalty.

The away side were much improved after the break, despite playing up the slope.

Bright kicked a second penalty to nudge his side in front and then scored a try, after being set up by Charlie Holton, and added the conversion.

A further Bright penalty put the game beyond Combe Down, despite them scoring with the final play of the match.
