The lead was restored within two minutes when Kieran Clarke forced a poor clearance and Flower set up Lucas Humphreys to take the pass for a debut try. The half came to end with a successful penalty kick by Owen Howell for a 5-13 lead.

With two Keynsham throw-ins stolen, a fourth strike against the head, and good kick and chase in the first few minutes of the second half, Winscombe were unable to produce the score it deserved.

Humphreys should have been presented with his second try of the match, but the final pass was down at his feet.

However, the visitors scored again after George House kicked to touch. A stolen line-out saw Howell and House set up Phil Peat to touch down, converted by Howell.

On the wrong end of numerous penalties, Winscombe were eventually rewarded with one of their own and Howell touched down after good work by the threequarters.
