Rugby Union: Bournemouth 22-27 Launceston - National 2 South

CAPTAIN'S CHARGE: Bournemouth's

LAUNCESTON'S last gasp try prevented Bournemouth from making it four wins in a row at Chapel Gate as the Lions failed to hold their nerve as they had against Taunton seven days earlier

In a closely contested match, David Dunn's side were out-muscled by the Cornish All Blacks during the dying embers of this midtable clash.

The defeat leaves newly promoted Lions 9th in National 2 South as the season approaches its halfway stage, though hands Launceston a healthier advantage just above Bournemouth in the standings. 

Dunn's charges are without a fixture for three weeks now following the demise of Rugby Lions at the start of the season and a blank weekend scheduled. 

When Bournemouth return to action, they will be confident of returning to winning ways with a home fixture against Lydney who have lost every match since their opening day success over still winless Barking
