BRIDPORT got their Wadworth 6X Dorset & Wilts One South off to a terrible start as they lost 96-0 by relegated Swanage and Wareham at Bestwall Road.

Swanage & Wareham, having taken the plunge last season, are determined to earn promotion back to the Southern Counties South this season, and came up against a Bridport outfit who struggled with players missing.

The points onslaught started in the first minute as Swans’ left winger Harry Spyers ran in a try in the corner.

Centre Charlie Rowberry was next on the scoresheet two minutes later, with scrum-half Lee Hardy making the score 17–0 after only eight minutes.

Matt Roberts went in for Swans’ fourth try four minutes later and by 20 minutes Spyers went in again to make the score 27–0.

The Swans extended their lead six minutes later as right winger Tom Haw went in at the corner.

Roberts went in for his second try before the interval, with time before the break for Hardy to secure his second try of the game making the score at half-time 44-0.

The carnage continued in the second half as after 46 minutes Spyers completed his hat-trick and replacement flanker George Pavey scored his first try for the hosts.

Second row Charlie Joynt was next to score, and just on the hour mark Spyers claimed his fourth try of the game, although neither try was converted.

Having barely threatened, a couple of penalties to Bridport put them into the game, but an attempt at goal drifted wide and the Blues remained pointless.

In the final 10 minutes winger Haw ran in three tries down the wing, all of which were converted to take the score to 89-0.

Finally, Pavey scored his second try of the match as Swanage and Wareham fell just short of the 100 points mark.
