Magpies' Second-Half Swoop Downs Mounties
Wentworthville have scored 30-unanswered points to record their best win of the season to date, a convincing 36-18 victory in what was a high-quality affair at Ringrose Park.
After a slow start Mounties looked to have found their groove when leading 18-6 towards the back-end of the first-half, but two tries in the closing minutes before the break gave the Magpies the impetus to go on with the job.
Keeping the visitors scoreless, the Magpies remain well and truly in the hunt for a spot in the Intrust Super Premiership top eight come the season’s end.
The home side was best served by their ever-elusive fullback Honeti Tuha and damaging centre, Nathan Davis, who capitalised on the strong go-forward provided by the big men upfront, led by Siosaia Vave and Marata Niukore.
