SWINDON St George secured a shot at West of England Super Fives glory in the South West League after a 30-8 victory over Reading Raiders in the semi-finals last Saturday.

Ben Whincup’s side will now travel to Cheltenham for the final this weekend to face All Golds, who saw off Somerset Vikings in the other last-four clash.

Swindon were always a cut above a weakened Raiders side at Supermarine RFC, with coach Whincup lauding a job well done from his troops.

St George ran in six tries on the day, with Simon Addis leading the way with a brace, while Rhys Evans, Jack Daynes and Todd Johnson all got over the whitewash as well.

Coach Whincup said: “It was a great day and a really solid performance from all of the boys. It was a really pleasing result built on a professional performance.

“It was quite convincing, I don’t think the result was ever in any doubt. We were worthy winners and deserve to be in the Grand Final.

“I don’t think it was the strongest Reading side we could have faced based on what we have seen already this season. I think they had a few players out, but you can only beat what is in front of you.

“You still have to put in a performance yourself and not get complacent as Reading are a good enough group to cause a slip-up even with a few players missing.”

This weekend’s final will mark a meeting of the top two teams from the pool stage of the competition, with St George have finished as runners-up behind unbeaten All Golds.

After putting in a classy performance in the semi-finals, Whincup hopes his team can repeat the trick when the trophy is on the line.

Whincup said: “All Golds are a very good team but we know what we are capable of it we can get everything to click together.

“It will be a great day. The players are all really looking forward to it.”
