BURNHAM Seconds travelled to Wellington and came away with a comfortable victory.

The visitors started well when Mike Whitfield opened the scoring, which he also converted. The score was doubled when Dan Berry drove over, again converted by Whitfield.

Wellington looked dangerous at times, but were kept out by good defensive work by Rob Lewis, Glen Cutter, Matt Slater, Tom Stevens, Arron Rees, Dave Harris and Ash Morris.

An excellent move by Rob Lewis, Lee Berry and Dan Berry, resulted in a solo effort by Alex Bowkett, who also converted as Burnham ended the half 21-0 to the good.
