RUGBY: Morganians complete double over Wivi
2:00pm Tuesday 18th March 2014 in Sport
Morganians 12, Wiveliscombe 5
MORGANIANS completed the double over Wivelscombe with a very solid team display.
It was Wiveliscombe who started on the front foot, and after shifting the ball from side to side, they finally added their only points of the day with a try in the corner - the conversion was missed.
The rest of the game was played at Morganians pace as they controlled possession - with only the odd attack from the opposition.
They soon took the lead after a big drive from their forwards at scrum time, put Royston Grimstead in the position to touch down - Will Hopkins converted.
The game continued in much the same way in the second half and Morgs confirmed the victory after some good offloading play and breaks by the forwards, led to Royston Grimstead adding his second try of the day.
This was a much needed result for Morganians and pushes them up the table ready for the end of season run in.
Morgs take on Weston Hornets at home next weekend (March 22) with a 2.30pm kick off.
