A counter-attack from a missed penalty kick set up the next scoring position. Stewart and Howell countered to send Thomas and Adam Scrase on the charge. Then Jim Merryfield and Flower sent Rhys Lewis away before the ball came back to Stewart again. Eventually, after good work by Paul Cashman, Merryfield sold a dummy to cut through a ragged defensive.
After the break, Winscombe enjoyed a purple patch, running in five tries by Thomas (3), Flower and Rhys Lewis. Thomas scored his fifth try in the 63rd minute, before the home side were awarded a penalty try to finish the scoring.
