Unfortunately Swindon were on the wrong end of a 51-25 scoreline against a strong Bournemouth side.

The game started evenly with both sides trading penalties but after that Bournemouth got in their stride to score some well worked tries.

Swindon though battled on well and clawing back some points with Ian Reynolds, Mike Thompson, Mark Chatwin and Leigh Durnford on target for the Greenbridge Road side.

After the match Swindon’s No 8 Reynolds said: “Bournemouth scored some well worked tries but we did claw back some scores. Fitness was our downfall though and because we worked so hard for our tries we often conceded straight away.

“Going forward we will not face a team that strong again this season and if we can maintain our second half form and improve our fitness levels then we are in for a good season.”
