Youth up to fourth with win at Llan

On Saturday afternoon the Youth made the short-trip to take on Llangennech RFC in the East Carmarthenshire Youth League. With Tumble head coach Selwyn Morgan having previously coached the youth team at Llangennech and having played for the club this was a game in which he wanted a performance from his side.  Struggling for front-row players Llan requested passive scrums and reduced numbers prior to kick-off which took the edge off the Magpies strength at the set-piece. Starting slowly, it took until the 33rd minute for the first score and by which time the Magpies had already lost captain Tomos Raymond, centre Alex Jones and second row Ryan Williams to injury, although Ryan did later return to the field of play. These injuries succeeded in taking the momentum out of Tumble’s play but did not dim the passion shown by every man in squad so far this season.

With the team struggling for numbers after the loss of so many players to injury former captain Alex ‘Cross’ Jones returned to the field of play and quickly made a difference with well worked midfield move. The game saw great man of the match performances from the powerful duo of Jack Tucker and Rhys Jones. Rhys also showed his versatility by appearing in four different positions during game and never missing a tackle. Tumble’s tries came from Alex ‘Cross’ Jones x2, Rhys Tobias, Daniel Davies and Jack Tucker x2. Curtis Bowdler added three conversions to complete the scoring.

The only negative from a positive result were the injuries to add to an ever-growing list and the club wishes everyone a speedy recovery. The result moves the boys into fourth position on 13 points, two behind Cefneithin and four behind second-placed Ammanford with a game in hand on both.

Special mention from Selwyn and the coaching staff to the team’s vocal group of Mother and Gran supporters. Well done to the boys and a massive thank you for their effort and commitment. Get well soon to all those out injured.
