Wimborne Rugby Club continued their dominance in Southern Counties South with a thumping 77-0 win over Walcot.

The Minstermen ran home with thirteen tries as they eased to victory at Leigh Park.

Two tries apiece from Steve King, Alex Priest and Tom Moysey helped the Dorset side continue their march up the league table after clinching the Dorset and Wiltshire Cup last weekend.

Matt Warwick opened the scoring in the first minute after Wimborne quickly retained possession and a quick passing move allowed the lock to power over the line.

The Dorset side's relentless pressure didn't stop after the break, as Jamie Tryska went over - then Moysey scored a fantastic solo try, before scored his second try mid-way through the second half.
