Weston-super-Mare keep pressure on with win over Malvern
Weston-super-Mare took maximum points as they completed a league double over struggling Malvern, 24-3, to keep the pressure on the top two in SSE National Three South West.
Loosehead prop Dave Swann put the home side in to an early lead but then the Seasiders had to shuffle their back line when they lost wing James Arnold due to injury and he was replaced by Harry Jones.
Weston’s second came from a drive over the line with acting skipper Dave Burge getting the touchdown and fly-half James Mackay added the extras. But Malvern got on the scoreboard just before the break through an Adam Dixon penalty.
The 12-3 scoreline remained unchanged until the hour mark when referee Dan Mobley awarded Weston a penalty try which Mackay duly converted. The bonus point try came after sustained pressure with lock Ash Russell getting his hands on the ball.

Avonmouth Old Boys continued their battle to avoid a quick return to South West One as full-back Joe Wearne landed a penalty five minutes from time to seal a 25-24 victory over his former club Barnstaple.
Mouth are now six points clear of the first of the three sides in the relegation zone.
Barnstaple led 17-5 at the break after tries from Ross Williamson and Linford Brock were both converted by Luke Berry, who added a penalty. Avonmouth skipper Grant Britton got their try.
Britton and James Foss got Avonmouth tries after the break, both converted by Wearne.
Brock crossed for his second touchdown after an interception, again converted by Berry, and Barum led 24-22, but Wearne denied them victory.
