BRIDPORT earned a comprehensive victory over Salisbury thirds last week and this was due in no small part to new signing Mitch Waters and the returning Rory Greening.

Waters, 24, is from Cwmbran in South Wales and joined Bridport this season as a new member.

He is working as a civil engineer in Dorchester and because of his friendship with Bridport’s new head coach, Wes Lewis, opted to play at Bridport.

He has been playing rugby since the age of seven and his last clubs were Caerlon and Newbridge, who play respectively in League One and the Welsh Championship.

He can play in both the second and back rows and his playing experience from the Welsh league is bringing a strong performance into Bridport’s scrum.

Rory Greening is returning to the first team after a short spell at Dorchester.

He is the son of head groundsman, Clive Greening, and his strength and power playing at outside centre is a welcome addition to the Bridport back division.

Both players are looking forward to making important contributions to Bridport’s forthcoming league campaign.

The Blues are currently sixth in Dorset & Wilts Two South at present, with five points coming from their opening two league fixtures.

New players are welcome to come down to training every Thursday at 7pm at the club.

Bridport’s next home game is against Puddletown on Saturday, October 22.
