TROWBRIDGE head coach Dan Jeffries hopes his side have delivered the result to make the rest of the Southern Counties South division take notice after they destroyed county rivals Devizes 80-5 at Doric Park on Saturday.

Jeffries' men ran in 12 tries as the Saddlebacks, themselves among the contenders at the top of the table, were swept aside.

James MacFarlane led the rout with a hat-trick of tries, while Lewis Jordan bagged a brace of touchdowns.

Lee Fairclough, Matt Howard, Ashley Chalk, Sam Edwards, Joe Knight and Adam Sullivan, in his first game back after suspension, plus a penalty try also got on the scoresheet, while Tom Weaver booted seven conversions and Connor James added three.

Jeffries said: "It was not what we were expecting at all. Devizes are up there and this was one of our target games to try and keep us in there behind (leaders) Sherborne.

"It all clicked. We've developed our discipline which makes it very tough to get a route into us and we just have to keep playing with intensity and keep the pressure on.

"I hope it will send a bit of a message to the rest of the league.''

Corsham’s see-saw form took another upwards turn as they dramatically edged out struggling Yeovil 26-25 at Lacock Road on Saturday.

A rollercoaster game saw both teams looking to play open attacking rugby and Corsham took the lead with a penalty try after a series of scrum infringements by Yeovil who struggled to handle the power of the home pack on their own line.

The visitors then replied with a try to level the scores just before half-time.

Early in the second half, two quick tries by Will Chivers and Liam Snape, the second converted by Matt Draper, took Corsham into a 19-7 lead.

Yeovil hit back with a penalty before scoring three tries to go ahead 25-19.

However, with only a few minutes remaining, Corsham launched an attack which culminated in man of the match Steve Bailey helping to power the Corsham pack over for a pushover try scored by number eight Alex Bilton.

Draper stepped up to make the conversion and secure the win with the final kick of the game.

Corsham head coach Tim Draper said: “It was not good for the blood pressure but the guys showed a great deal of spirit and composure to strike back in the last couple of minutes and win the game.

“A special mention should go to our front row who dominated the scrums all game and in the end proved to be the difference between the two teams.’’
