In-Form Magpies Dispose Of Disappointing Tigers
The Wentworthville Magpies have accounted for the Wests Tigers in their Round 20 clash at Ringrose Park, turning in a dominant display to run out 46-10 victors – the result their fifth-consecutive Intrust Super Premiership NSW win.
Untroubled from the get-go, the Magpies move to within one competition point of the top four, running in nine-tries-to-two to consign the Wests Tigers to the bottom of the ladder in the process.
An early error from the Wests Tigers set the tone for the afternoon’s run of play, with Wentworthville sent on an immediate attacking raid deep inside the visitors’ territory.
Making the Tigers pay for their error, a strong effort close to the line from Magpies winger George Jennings was rewarded with the first points of the afternoon. Fellow outside back Nathan Davis was unable to add the extras from the touchline.
Wentworthville Magpies 46 (G Jennings, C Nelson, M Stromquist, D Aukafolau, J Folau, J Robson, H Tuha, S Schulte, N Davis tries; N Davis 5 goals)
Wests Tigers 10 (J Marshall-King 2 tries; V Mapesone goal)
