DEVIZES made it two wins in a row in Southern Counties South as they leapfrogged vanquished hosts Swindon College Old Boys into sixth place with a 13-7 win.

A physical College outfit carried forward aggressively in the early stages and, as the pitch cut up, they edged the first half, crossing for a converted try to go 7-0 in front.

Devizes upped the pressure and although final passes and handling did not bring rewards, fly-half Rory Brown kicked a straightforward three-pointer after a number of transgressions by the home side.

A try -saving tackle from Brown that forced a home knock-on allowed the Saddlebacks to trail by just four points heading into the interval.

The visitors made changes at the break, Travis Orwin and Tim Alchin entering the fray, and deservedly edged their way back to within a point as Brown kicked another penalty.

In the 70th minute the key moment of the game came when Orwin brilliantly charged down a clearance kick, regathered and offloaded out of the tackle to the supporting Lewis Dodds, who outsprinted the retreating home defence to run in from 40 metres, Brown adding the extras.

A massive hit from lock Lewis Paget on his opposite number stemmed the tide as College poured forward in search of a response, but the Saddlebacks held on.

Marlborough scored more than 50 points for the second successive match as they put hosts Yeovil to the sword 59-17 to maintain the pressure on leaders Sherborne.

The pitch was a factor throughout the game and didn't allow the visitors to play their usual brand of exciting, fast-flowing rugby.

Yeovil scored a converted try after just two minutes but Marlborough replied quickly as Patrick Campbell rolled away from a ruck close to the line to score in the corner.

The conditions dictated most of the next 25 minutes but the strength of Marlborough meant they were slowly getting on top and eventually Ben Fulton powered over, the try being converted by Jake William.

Yeovil added a penalty before Mitieli Vulikijapani scored another Marlborough try, but the home side pounced on a mistake to even it up at 17-17 with a converted score before the interval.

Marlborough chief Elisi Vunipola's words of wisdom saw his team play the conditions much better in the second half.

After just eight minutes Lemeki Moala drove over, followed soon after by Waisale Navuniduka who was able to step in to touch down, Williams converting.

Vulikijapani scored again with a charge-down try and Epeli Kotobalavu picked up a loose pass to run in and score.

In the final 10 minutes Fulton completed a personal hat-trick with two more tries, Williams taking his conversion tally to seven.

Corsham got back to winning ways as they put daylight between themselves in fourth and fifth-placed North Dorset by edging home 18-17 at Lacock Road.

Matt Draper's penalty cancelled out an early Dorset effort before Corsham went ahead with a try by Robbie Robinson after Kalif Barnes' chip-ahead.

A Dorset try and three penalties saw them assume command 17-8 after the break but Corsham staged a late revival to score a try through Barnes, who also converted to bring the score to 15-17.

With minutes remaining Dorset conceded a penalty and Barnes coolly slotted the winning kick.

Corsham head coach Tim Draper said: "The way we finished the game in the last 15 minutes was fantastic. The guys deserved to win because they played some great attacking rugby in very difficult conditions to get back in front and then hold out North Dorset with some strong and disciplined defence in the last few minutes.''
