Magpies knock Saints out of Plate

The Magpies finally secured that elusive first win of the season to knock St Clears out of the National Plate, 31-34. In a brusing, hard fought game Tumble scored three first half tries through winger Mike Edwards (2) and centre Steffan Price to go into the break trailing 19-17 to last season's Division 3 West A champions, captain Steven Hewitt had added the extras with a conversion. The second half was a ding dong affair with the lead changing hands three times. The Magpies took the lead when number 8 Steffan Davies burst over for an unconverted try before St Clears replied almost immediately with a converted try. Magpies centre Steffan Price scored a well worked try and stepped up to slot over the conversion to take Tumble into a three point lead, 26-29. The Magpies were now playing some fine running rugby and it wasn't long before hooker Rhys Lewis went over for an unconverted try which made the score 26-34 to the away side. St Clears were however not finished with the scoring and scored an unconverted try to claw the score back to 31-34. The final ten minutes were frantic and uncompromising as both teams had chances to score and secure the victory but with the nerves of the Tumble officials and supporters jangling the referee finally blew the final whistle which guaranteed the Magpies their first win of the season and passage into the second round of the National Plate. Well done to the boys on fronting up with a gutsy hard running performance.

It's back to the league next weekend when the Magpies travel to Pembrokeshire to face Fishguard and Goodwick RFC, the boys will be hoping for a repeat of this result and a first win in the league.
