MATT Truscott’s return to Winscombe from a few seasons at Weston proved timely, as his power and natural ability at No 8 netted him a brace of tries.

Winscombe started well and immediately dominated the territory and possession and after only four minutes of play drove over the Chew line for Truscott’s first try.

From the restart, Winscombe again worked the ball both up front and through the backs to gain valuable ground, which again resulted in a Truscott try, converted by stand-off James Carter.

The Winscombe dominance seemed to motivate Chew, who retained some possession and gained territory, assisted by a poor penalty count against Winscombe.

However, despite the Chew efforts, the solid Winscombe defence succeeded in keeping Chew at bay and only allowing them a penalty.

The second half was again dominated by Winscombe, but Chew came close to the Winscombe line, but the solid defence held firm and Chew were unable to cross.

Carter landed another penalty and the half was rounded off by a spectacular movement along the Winscombe backs for winger James Flower to score wide out which Carter converted.

The return of Truscott was a welcome addition to the Winscombe squad and with his assistance and a reduction in the penalty count, Winscombe can only improve.

On Saturday, the 1st XV are rested and then visit Taunton the following week on March 26.
