BANBURY Bulls won 34-10 at Wimborne to end the first half of the South West 1 East season on a high.

Alex Caviezel Cox and Jacob Mills scored two tries each as the Oxfordshire side climbed to second with a hard-fought triumph.

Ed Phillips set the ball rolling with two penalties, before Caviezel Cox came off the bench to replace the injured Jack Briggs.

Within minutes he had touched down for his first try, with Phillips converting.

Cox crossed again minutes later to all-but seal victory, with another successful conversion making it 20-0 at the break.

Wimborne scored a second-half penalty, before Banbury’s Tom Macdonald was sent to the sin bin.

But Mills stretched the lead with a converted score and the visitors secured the bonus point with a fine try.

Cute passes from Tommy Gray and Duncan Leese released Mills, who dived over for the converted score.

The hosts replied with a late converted try of their own, but Banbury were already out of sight.

Oxford Harlequins were edged out 24-18 at home to Old Centralians.

Johnny Henderson’s try put the hosts ahead, but the visitors touched down for a converted score to lead 7-5.

Harry Burn scored a superb solo try for Quins, which was then converted, but Old Centralians crossed again to make it 12-12 at half-time.

They edged ahead 19-12 with another converted try, but the hosts matched their opponents on 61 minutes when Burn went over.

Five minutes later Quins let the visitors in for what proved to be the decisive try, with the hosts unable to respond.
