Hampshire edge closer to another Twickenham final

Hampshire are just one game away from returning to Twickenham in a County Championship Final after a thrilling 36-36 draw against Somerset at Gosport Park on Saturday in front of an estimated crowd of over 400 writes Brian Seeney.

In this coming Saturday's final round of the Bill Beaumont County Championship (Division 2 South), Hampshire are at home to Warwickshire at Hooks Lane, Havant (3pm) whilst North Midlands host Somerset.

Hampshire currently top the table on eight points with Somerset second on eight points. But Hampshire have a better points' difference tally of +20 - each have won and drawn a game.

Led by Gosport & Fareham skipper Wes Dugan, Hampshire were 0-7 down after only six minutes against Somerset but quickly recovered through centre Wayne Dugan's try.

The lead then changed hands at regular intervals and the game ended at 36 points apiece, with both sides knowing they could clinch a Twickenham place.

The day's other game between Warwickshire and North Midlands ended in a 56-56 draw.
