DAN Jeffries reckons Trowbridge’s game management can carry them far in Southern Counties South after the Doric Park side recorded their eighth straight league win on Saturday.

The visitors arrived at Frome expecting a tough encounter but eventually wore down the home side 41-5.

Jeffries’ side have now scored more than 260 points in their last five matches on their rise into second place behind leaders Sherborne but the head coach believes it is the early groundwork that is laying the platform.

“Frome is always a tough match and they upset us last year,’’ he said. “It was very physical but once we grounded them down and got the control we needed, we managed to pull away.

“It’s a big difference with us from last season. We ground out the wins then but this year we’ve managed to pull away a bit in the end.

“We’ve got Marlborough (at home) on Saturday and it’s important that we bring the intensity and accept that it might take us 60 minutes to break them down.’’

Karl Crosbie opened the scoring with a try, converted by Tom Weaver, who did likewise when Karl Parry touched down.

Lewis Jordan bagged a brace either side of Dan Greenslade’s score before James Davies crossed and Weaver converted. Greenslade added another before Frome’s late response.
