Weymouth & Portland Rugby Club Press Release.
Dorchester 46 pts v Weymouth & Portland 3.
After the game the Seasiders manager Vaughn Carter said: It’s been a difficult couple of weeks for us, we always said that consolidation in this division after winning promotion from division 2 last season was our primary target & it was all too evident from the kick off that most of the Dorchester players experience of playing of in the Southern Counties league gave them a big advantage over our youngsters, then added to that our ever increasing pool of injuries didn’t help, in fact we only had 5 of the squad who started in our Dorset & Wilts Vase final game 3 weeks ago available to play, but no excuses you can only play the team in front of you & Dorchester deserved to win the game”.
“We did however have some positives to take away; I thought we had the better of the set scrums & our line out play has improved, but in defence we were poor missing too many tackles & that cost us dearly, but now we have the Christmas break to re-group & hope some of injured players return in the New Year”.
