RUGBY: Royal Wootton Bassett 19 Stow on the Wold 40
6:00pm Tuesday 15th October 2013 in Sport
A STRONG performance ended without reward for Bassett in their Southern Counties North clash.
The home side got off to the perfect start, young centre Tucker Blinkhorn bursting through defensive line to cross under the posts and David Hogg converting within the first ten minutes.
Stow though, responded with three tries before a sin-binning left them short-handed and Bassett took advantage with several strong phases from which Duncan Fulling was able to break through run in to leave his side 19-14 behind..
Bassett’s attack again showed signs of real promise in the second half, but missed tackles allowed Stow to add two further tries.
Despite a sin-binning for second row Drew Blinkhorn, Bassett showed their mettle and an impressive attack straight off a kick off saw Tucker. Blinkhorn score his second try before Stow scored again.
