Hampshire rallied and scored via MacDonald who also converted his try. 12 minutes into the game Gloucestershire were leading 12 -7 and Hampshire looked like they were here to give as good as they got, but Baldwin wasn’t finished and scored his hat trick on 17 minutes! Halftime saw Gloucestershire leading 17 - 7.
Soon after half time flanker Ben Davies (Royal Agricultural College) got over the line with Price converting another. Hampshire scrum half Burden replied for Hampshire, but Gloucestershire maintained a comfortable lead and with further scores by fullback Bradley Dunn [Spartan's RFC] and a second from Davies and both converted by Price. Gloucestershire ran out easy winners .
