Somerset 1

Bristol Barbarians 55, North Petherton II 29

PETHERTON were unable to turn their recent poor form around and lost their third consecutive match on Saturday.

In a first-half totally dominated by the home side, Petherton were staring down the barrel as they fell 40 points behind.

But Pethy gave an excellent account of themselves in the second half, scoring four tries to Barbarians’ two.

It is now vital for the team to pick up some points against Old Sulians this Saturday to avoid dropping into the relegation zone.
