TROWBRIDGE head coach Dan Jeffries was delighted to see his side secure their second successive shut-out win on the road on Saturday.

Having returned from bottom side Swanage and Wareham with a 49-0 victory in the bag, the Doric Park outfit faced a sterner test against a Swindon College Old Boys team who had defeated the then-Southern Counties South leaders Devizes 15-8 in their previous outing.

However, Trowbridge, who lost their opening three matches of the season, continued where they left off on the Dorset coast as they ran in five converted tries in a 35-0 win in Swindon.

“The good thing about this result is that we have gone 160 minutes of rugby on the road without conceding a point,” said Jeffries, who saw Max Day, Carl Crosby, Dan Greenslade, Lee Fairclough and Tom Weaver, who converted all five, touch down.

“We have been working massively on our defence. We have always been able to score, it is just sometimes we let ourselves down in defence.

“Last season we didn’t go a game without conceding any points. It just goes to show what a difference a couple of key players coming back into the team can do.”

Against College, Jeffries felt that it was his side’s discipline that won the day.

“College are a physical side, I don’t think they missed a tackle all game,” the Trowbridge head coach added.

“But they had a couple of yellow cards and we gradually broke them down.''

Corsham saw their unbeaten start to the season ended as Sherborne clinched a 13-7 triumph in Dorset to head the league standings.

In a tight contest, Sherborne led through a solitary penalty at half-time and extended their advantage with a try in the second half.

The visitors replied with a try by Harry Beazer, converted by Matt Draper, to pull back to 8-7 but further try took Sherborne to victory despite late Corsham pressure.

Corsham head coach Tim Draper said: “It was disappointing as we had a lot of territory and possession.”
