The game turned in the 50th minute, when Gowerton were penalised for an illegal tackle, Bishopston took the penalty quickly and eventually crossed in the corner. The home team were now on the front foot but Gowerton still had the lead and needed to show some composure, however, the team lost it’s discipline and conceded a second try with 5 minutes to go. Gowerton only trailed by 4 points, and took the game back to Bishopston with the forwards applying tremendous pressure and they were only denied a score when Zak Bevan was held up over the line. However, at the 5 metre scrum an ill judged comment led to a sending off and a penalty. Bishopston took it quickly and went the length of the field to score their third try. The conversion was followed by the final whistle and Gowerton had lost a game they had controlled for 50 minutes. They now have to wait to see if they qualify for the last 32 as one of the best second placed teams.
