SWINDON skipper Mike Thompson says his side have built up a head of steam after securing back-to-back wins with a 15-12 win over Salisbury.

Trio of Wayne Lower, Ash Taylor and Josh Jenson notched for the hosts.

The victory is a week after their derby win over Royal Wootton Bassett and Thompson says a consistency is behind their results.

“It was a really good win, Salisbury are a good team so it is a great result for us,” he said. “I know we were at home but it is nice to continue the momentum.

“We didn’t want to change the team too much from the one who played at Bassett, what we have lacked a bit this year is consistency.

“When we played Bassett, it was one of the best performances of our year, so to go an change it too much wouldn’t have helped.

“We had a couple of guys who were unavailable from the Bassett game but we just swapped them like for like. The consistency gives us something to build on now, it seems like there is more morale around the team now.”

The club now have a weekend off, before facing Witney at home which Thompson sees as a positive.

“The momentum is due to having people back on a regular basis, but there are some people who have a few niggles,” he added.

“A week off will do us the world of good because if you keep playing on them, eventually they’ll become more than that.

“It gives everyone a rest and then we will be back into training next week and we’ll hit it fresh when we get back.”

Royal Wootton Bassett missed out against Stratford Upon Avon in a 23-22 away defeat, their points coming from second row Sam Robinson, veteran prop Chris Rowland and penalty try and a conversion and penalty from Tom Fieldsend Swindon College Old Boys’ abandoned Southern Counties South clash with Frome is at the centre of a probe by the RFU.

The contest was called off with 11 minutes to go and College leading 13-6 after what is understood to be an altercation between both teams.

College confirmed the RFU were now investigating the circumstances of the incident, but were unable to comment further due to all RFU disciplinary and appeal proceedings taking place in private.

Supermarine ended a nine-match losing run in Dorset & Wilts One North with a 32-12 success over Royal Wootton Bassett 2nd.
