Launceston 29 v Tynedale 27 (Half Time: 17-10)

Tynedale made the first of their three long journeys down to the south west and came away disappointed to gain only a single losing bonus point after critically falling foul of the referee who yellow carded no fewer than four of the Tyne players for techincal infringements.

Tyne started well in what was always an open entertaining match and were rewarded with a Rob Miller penalty after 5 minutes. Further enterprising Tynedale play was rewarded when James Hoyle set up Ross Samson for a try under the posts which Miller converted for a 10-0 lead.

The match then took a turn for the worse as Tyne suffered the first of ther yellow cards when Jack Harrison was sin-binned. The home side took full advantage scoring a penalty and two converted tries to gain a 17-10 lead.

Tyne managed to quell the storm when Harrison returned but on the stroke of half time both Samson and Danny Williams were carded to reduce Tyne to 13 men! Again Launceston took full advantage scoring two further tries, one converted, to gain a healthy 29-10 lead.

With a full compliment back on the field Tyne took the game to Launceston and were rewarded with two converted tries in the space of 3 minutes through Samson and Miller.

With 5 minutes remaining Gavin Beasley kicked a penalty ro reduce the arrears to two pints but Launceston, aided by a further yellow card given to Rupert Harden, held out for the narrowest of victories.
