SALISBURY maintained their good form with a convincing 43-20 win at Swindon College Old Boys.

The victory sees them stay second in Southern Counties South.

William Lewin got the ball rolling in the opening minute, carving his way through for a superb try.

Dan Hammond quickly crossed for the second score, with Bobby Saunders adding a third.

Swindon's powerful forward line finally paid off with a try, but a quick tap penalty by Ed Crossley saw him break, kick ahead, gather and feed Max Bishop for the bonus-point score.

Tom Tully again added the extras.

Hammond grabbed his second of the afternoon before the half was out, giving the visitors a 26-point lead at the break.

Old Boys started the second half well, reducing the arrears, before Crossley soon got Salisbury back on the front foot.

But Swindon hit back, dominating possession and territory and securing two more tries to bring the score back to 20-38.

The visitors rallied to end the contest strongly with good work by Crossley and Lewin eventually leading to George Fossey scoring in the corner.

Salisbury welcome Walcot to Castle Road on Saturday (2.15pm).
