9:00am Wednesday 24th October 2012 in Sport
TROWBRIDGE stretched their winning run in the league to four games as they recorded a narrow victory over their Wiltshire rivals.
In a game of contrasting halves, both sides kicked away possession and, with the packs well matched, each missed kickable penalty shots.
Trowbridge scrum-half Kyle Knight was sin-binned towards the end of the first half, but it remained scoreless.
The 14-man visitors took an early second-half lead when Lloyd Davis booted a penalty and stretched it when Dave Martin crashed through a ruck, Davis adding teh conversion.
Bassett responded with a number of attacks, but the defence held firm and the hosts were reduced to 14 when Grant Murdoch was yellow-carded.
Trowbridge increased their lead through another rolling maul with Sam Edwards touching down and Davis converted.
