TOM Moysey inspired Wimborne RFC back to form as the Minstermen returned to winning ways in Southern Counties South against Frome RFC.
Two tries from the fly half – along with six conversions and a penalty helped Wimborne on their way to a 57-10 bonus-point win over the Somerset club at Leigh Park.
The Minstermen are now just two points behind third-placed Sherborne RFC after securing their first win in over a month.
Moysey opened the scoring with a well-struck penalty kick before flanker Doug Robertson went over for the hosts’ opening try.
Wimborne doubled their tally after ten minutes when a quick tap penalty by Lewis Allen allowed Scott Maidment to go over, before another break moments later sent James Mikolajewski over the line as the home side built a healthy lead.
It got worse for the visitors when Wimborne secured the bonus point on twenty minutes when Mikolajewski made a good break before laying the ball off for Moysey to go over the try line under the posts.
Frome were trailing by 29 points but opened their account with a penalty kick from Matt King to end the half on a high. The visitors made a bright start to the second period – and good pressure from their pack allowed Saul Ames-Reddin to score their only try, with King adding the conversion.
Frome grew in confidence, but a stern defensive display from the hosts prevented Frome closing the gap. Wimborne scored their fifth try against the run of play as Ollie Hammer broke through before feeding Sunny Ratnam – who put the result beyond doubt.
Frome were given a boost when Moysey was sent to the sin bin for a tackle infringement – but despite their numerical disadvantage, Wimborne added to their tally when Mikolajewski gathered a clever box kick to score his second try, which he converted himself.
Wimborne ended the game in style as Moysey scored his second try of the game, before Jamie Walton rounded off the scoring with his side’s eighth try to secure a comprehensive win.
