RUGBY UNION: Thomas is late hero for Witney
6:49pm Wednesday 30th October 2013 in Rugby
Fly half Phil Thomas’s penalty earned Witney an encouraging 19-19 home draw with Swindon in South West 1 East on Saturday.
But the hosts will feel they should have hung on for victory on after leading 16-3 at half-time.
A try from full back Henry Lamb, converted by Thomas, who added three penalties, gave Witney a great platform.
Swindon had managed only a first-half penalty, but roared into a 19-16 lead, aided by a yellow card for Witney prop Jamie Burke.
Thomas was off target with a long-range penalty, but earned a draw late on.
Chipping Norton lost 26-19 at Chesham in the BB&O Premier Division.
