Weymouth & Portland Rugby Club Press Release.
After a weekend of inactivity when Weymouth & Portland received a walkover into the quarter finals of the Dorset and Wilts Knock Out Vase following Melksham’s withdrawal from the competition last week it’s back to Dorset & Wilts division 1 league action at Monmouth Avenue on Saturday, (October the 1st) when they are visited by Nation League three side Bournemouth’s third team kick off 3.00pm.
The Seasiders first team manager Vaughan Carter said: “Bournemouth came up with us from division two last season and so far have won both of their league matches scoring 149 points and conceding only 10, we beat them twice in our promotion campaign, but both games could have gone either way so we will have to be at our very best to compete with them”.
Centre Bryn Llewellyn has completed his enforced months lay off to give him time to fully recover from the head injury he picked up at Bridport in a pre season game and returns to the squad as does utility back Dan Hayne.
On October the 15th the Seasiders visit Supermarine for their Vase quarter final tie.
Weymouth and Portland’s second team visit Ellingham and Ringwood for a Dorset and Wilts division three fixture.
