Towcestrians notched up their fifth win in six games with a 34-14 victory away at struggling Salisbury in South West One East at the weekend.

Early pressure from the visitors resulted in a try for centre David Williams, who crashed his way over for the points with James Falvey adding the extras.

Although firmly in control, Tows struggled to add to their tally as the wet and windy conditions made life difficult for both teams, but eventually a driving maul from a line-out powered the home side back and Craig Holton touched down for a second try, again converted by Falvey.

Salisbury then made a mockery of their league position by coming up with a try of their own, but It didn’t take long for Tows to re-establish their control, with a scrum setting up Liam Wilkinson to surge over, concluding the half.

Roared on by their crowd, the home team opened the second half with a second try try and an upset appeared on the cards, however Tows’ domination in the scrum started to tell as countless penalties culminated in a penalty try to extend the lead, which was soon followed by a fifth score to round off victory.

Tows remain second and visit Marlow this weekend.
