Marlborough scrum half Will Grant waiting for the call
Marlborough 39 - 15 Wimborne
Marlborough kicked off, attacking towards the town and received an early wave of Wimborne pressure. They had the ball camped for the first few minutes inside the Marlborough half. However, Marlborough grew into the game. On fourteen minutes the breakthrough arrived. Jonty Kaywent over the line after a rather scrappy sequence of play, however the try was coming. Will Grant provided a beautifully taken kick from thirty metres to convert the try. 7-0.
