Magpies topple New Dock to draw level with Amman

Tumble welcomed Llanelli side New Dock Stars RFC to Parc y Mynydd Mawr on Thursday evening for a rearranged Specsavers Division 3 West B fixture. With the opertunity of overhauling Amman United at the summit of the league, admittedly having played a game more the Magpies started the game strongly and took the lead when number 8 Nathan Willard stormed over for an unconverted try. It didn't take long for New Dock to claw three points back with a well taken penalty goal. The scored stayed this way for a while before industrious openside flanker, Tom Miles went over for a try which was converted by outside half Steven Hewitt to make the score 12-3, which is how it remained at the interval.

The second half saw the Magpies start strongly and it only took seven minutes for them to get their third try of the game when hooker Rhys Lewis forced his way over after taking an inside pass. Hewitt stepped up to slot over the conversation and make the score 19-3. Unfortunately despite significant Magpies pressure, especially in the last 20 minutes Tumble were unable to add to the score. The lack of a fourth try saw the Magpies miss out on a bonus point which could have been key come the end of the season.

Of course matters have taken a different course since Thursday night and with the Covid-19 pandemic and a ban on all rugby until 30 March there is a good chance the season won't be played out in its entirety. We'll wait and see!
