The hosts began well and Scott Magrath burst through a gap to touch down, with Alex Walder converting.

Fly-half Mike Dyer then kicked through for Walder to race into the corner for a second try to make it 12-0, but Winscombe hit back with a penalty try.

And they took the lead when fly-half Owen Howells crashed over for a seconds try, which Sam Dearsley converted.

Gordano sent replacement centre Carl Petch away for a converted try, as the lead changed hands again, with Dearsley slotting a penalty before half time to cut the gap to two points.
