Magpies downed by slick Mumbles

The Magpies went down easily against a lively Mumbles side which were attacking at every opportunity. The early pressure brought a penalty to Mumbles after three minutes. Tumble however were able to get their mauling game going and, surprisingly took the lead after twenty minutes when Darren Williams crossed over in the corner. A further penalty by Leighton McKenna increased their lead after twenty five minutes. Tumble were getting on top at the set piece but Mumbles were far too sharp with ball in hand and the Magpies were unable to cope. In the space of ten minutes, Mumbles scored three converted tries, two from movements in their own twenty two. 

With the slope favoring the Magpies in the second half, it was hoped that they could reduce the deficit. No-one told Mumbles and they defended resolutely for thirty minutes. Tumble pressed and Mumbles transgressed time and time again and eventually ended up with three yellow cards. Tumble were unable to make the numerical advantage count and, with Mumbles hoofing the ball up field, they got the touchdown to put the game out of sight.  Back to fifteen with three minutes left, they scored two further tries one of which was converted to seal a lackluster performance from a well beaten Magpies side.
