Winscombe triumph over Old Colstonians to secure a semi-final Combination Bowl spot
WINSCOMBE followed up securing a place in the last four of the Somerset Vase by also reaching the semi-finals of the Good Morning Disposables Combination Bowl.
The village side trumped Old Colstonians 19-3 in a midweek tussle at Broad Plain, and will now be home to Bishopston, who received a walkover after Imperial scratched because they could not raise a side.
In the other half of the draw, Bristol Barbarians and Frampton Cotterell will make another attempt to complete their quarter-final, at Bristol Harlequins, on March 6 for the right to meet Gordano.
The Combination Vase, meanwhile, continues on Wednesday (7.30pm) with North Bristol hosting Bristol Harlequins for a place in the final.
