SWINDON fly-half Adam Westall says his side were more than happy to share the points following their 25-25 South West One East draw with Banbury at the weekend.

Sean Lynn’s troops held a 20-10 advantage at the end of the first half but failed to convert that into a win as they settled for two points.

Jordan Sheppard touched down for two tries for the visitors, while Josh Jenson recorded a solitary effort.

The result means Swindon are now one of three teams on 50 points in ninth, alongside Royal Wootton Bassett and Chippenham who occupy eighth and 10th in the table.

While Westall, who was captain last term, admits Swindon were fortunate to claim a draw, he believes their performance meant they deserved something from the game.

“It was a pretty difficult game. They were obviously a good side and they beat us pretty well at home at the start of the year,” said Westall. “It was pretty end-to-end and to come away with two points each is probably a fair reflection.

“We would have only nicked it at the end of the game if we were to come away with a win. But we would take two points at this point for definite.

“We went in at half-time 20-10 up and a lot of the game was played in the middle of the field.

“Both sets of backs are trying to have a go if I am honest. They had a very good winger who got four tries on the day.

“They liked to move the ball around and so do we. It was tit for tat and if their kicker had any kind of day they would have been well ahead but he missed all five kicks.

“We were a little bit fortunate in that respect but we were able to put some good phases together.”

Swindon will now move their focus to the weekend where they host Chippenham in their last home game of the season.
