After Trowbridge had clawed a score back after a mix-up in the Hornets’ defence, Francis’ beautiful flat pass sent wingman Rousell diving in for Hornets’ third try. Wheller showed great determination to force his way for another converted try leaving the half-time score at 26-7.

After the break, tighthead prop Reseigh struck twice in succession with two impressive long-range efforts, both following some silky skills from hooker Kieran Ward.
Caulfield rounded off a superb all-round Windsor Castle man of the match display by diving in for his second try. Rousell scored his second and Hornets’ final try after the winger had worked hard to support another attack.
In the pack, Joe Howe was outstanding as were Reseigh and Ward. Davidson hustled his opposite number well at scrum-half, while keeping his own game in tact on a muddy track and Francis kicked well for territory from fly-half. Special mention must also go to Sam Lewis who had an excellent match.
