BRACKNELL picked up a second home win in a row as they overcame Drybrook 30-20 to climb out of the South West Premier bottom three.

The Lily Hill men opened the scoring after five minutes when wing Conor Segre collected a Sam Gibbons pass before dotting down, but Drybrook hit back with a James Clancy penalty before Kyle Frowen burst through a number of tackles to score and put the visitors in front.

However, Bracknell regrouped and moved back in front courtesy of a converted Gabe Hills try midway through the half, and they went further ahead when Segre bagged his second of the afternoon.

Vic Hardwicke’s conversion put the home side 19-8 up at the interval.

Bracknell secured the bonus-point early in the second period when a powerful rolling maul culminated with Elliott Bellman dotting down at the back of the pack.

Drybrook rallied, though, and cut the gap with a try from Mitch Baldwin before a forwards effort of their own resulted in another score and the deficit being just four points. However, Bracknell were not to be denied and ensured the win with a brace of Hardwicke penalties.

Bracknell do not have a game this coming Saturday, returning to action at Exeter University on Saturday, November 17.
