CORSHAM'S see-saw form in Southern Counties South 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.''

Marlborough slipped to their second defeat of the season as they were downed 41-26 at leaders Sherborne.

The visitors trailed 24-12 at half-time as Inosi Laqekoro and Ratu Vuira scored tries for Marlborough, with Will Grant landing one conversion.

The second half was virtually even score-wise, with Russ Westcott and Vuira again crossing for the away team, Grant converting both.

But it was a day to forget for Devizes, who were swamped 80-5 in their Wiltshire dery at Trowbridge.

Trailing 40-0 at half-time, Devizes suffered a further blow as replacement flanker Luke Moore suffered whiplash which required an ambulance to be called and the match to switched pitches, Moore suffering no serious injury.

But the tries kept coming for Trowbridge, a Lewis Paget score the only consolation for the Saddlebacks, who also had Craig Bryant sent to the sin-bin in the final minutes.
