BRACKNELL RFC turned on the style to secure their first South West Premier win of the season as they secured a try bonus-point with a 41-9 dismantling of Brixham.

The visitors took just four minutes to open the scoring, Mitch Pinkus landing a penalty, but the Lily Hill men replied emphatically, Elliott Bellman crashing over from their next attack.

The lead was extended to 10-3 shortly afterwards when some slick backs play allowed Simon Bayliss to dot down out wide, only for Pinkus to land his second penalty.

Vic Hardwicke replied for Bracknell before Pinkus was again successful from the tee, but it was the home side who had the final word in the opening 40 minutes when some neat interplay allowed Bayliss to come off his wing to create an overlap for Bart van Herwijnen to score his first try in in Bracknell colours.

Hardwicke converted to put the hosts 20-9 up at the break.

There was no let-up from the Lily Hill men after the interval, the bonus-point wrapped up following a powerful rolling maul which Hardwicke was again able to add the extras to.

Further Bracknell pressure led to their fifth try, a pushover try from a five-metre scrum being finished off by Kieran Forbes.

The final score of the game came with 20 minutes remaining, some more good handling allowing full-back George Owen to cross the whitewash.

Hardwicke was again accurate with the conversion, and after a difficult start to the season, Bracknell's campaign was up-and-running.

Bracknell will aim to follow up their first victory when they take on their longest trip of the season – to Camborne – on Saturday.
