Tumble 34 Llanelli Warriors 43 (Match 164)

No weddings to worry about this week and the re scheduled Tumble match was a big success for the Warriors.

A fine day and (eventually) a good turn out was topped off with a good win. There were some impressive debuts with Ryan Morgan and the 2 for 1 Ashleys: HellYeah and Hughes.

The Warriors managed an impressive victory at Tumble with a great display of positive rugby.

Excellent conditions at Parc Mawr were conducive to running rugby and both sides were happy to oblige.

It was high tempo rugby from start to finish and the scores came thick and fast. The inital score looked unlikely when the Warriors chipped ahead but a series of handling errors allowed Jonathan Kerr to pounce for a poachers try. The score gave the Warriors confidence though and the dominated most of the opening quarter. Nathan Lawson got the 1st of a brace of tries as the Warriors support running and offloading began to find some gaps. Chris Edmunds crossed for his 1st Warriors try but Tumble proved they could be dangerous and hit back from long range and shortly added a second. This set the pattern for the game with tit for tat scoring, but Tumble couldn’t quite pull back that early Warriors lead.

The Warriors ended the half strongly and should have scored again but drastic Tumble defence held firm.

This seemed to inspire the Magpies who came out strongly after the break and probably had the best of the second half. They couldn't catch the Warriors though. Ryan Morgan capped a fine debut with a try and joining him on the score sheet were Curtis Ramcke and Simon Jenkins.

Adam Benikaritis led the way for the home side with two tries and a conversion with Shaun farmer, James Owen and Emyr Davies all crossing. The latter was a sweeping length of field movement which emphasised the high skill level that had been on shoe. It was difficult to single out individuals from such consummate team performances and the Warriors much have been please with how all three of their debutants went. Jamie Evans was the most dangerous back on the field but Warriors No8 Rob Hughes was eventually chosen as Man of the Match.

Warriors : Joshua Crowther (Anthony Randall), Darren Pollitt (Tony Whittaker), Jamie Evans (Ashley Hellyr), Alun Stephens, Ryan Morgan (Curtis Ramcke), Dean Gilasbey, Chris Edmunds, Colin Talcon (Richard Evans), Nathan Lawson (Ashley Hughes), Mike Seigont, Jon Kerr, John Horwood, Simon Jenkins (Cpt), Rob Hughes, Gwilym Lewis

It wasn't all good mind, how Killer scored from Tarw's awful kick and chase is anyones guess...

Back at the clubhouse Tumble donated a very useful £50 to the Warriors and Simon gave 'that' speech again.
