The 2014 season is over for the Tamworth Magpies after the First Grade, Under 18 and Under 16 teams all made it to the Final of their divisions, but were unable to win a place in the Grand Fiinals.  The Under 16s went down narrowly to Pirates 15-19, and the Under 18s also lost out to the cross town rivals 12-40 despite coming back to finish on top in the second half.  First grade were ambushed by the mountain men from Walcha who revelled in the cold and wet conditions to run away in the second half with a 48-11 victory...

With the preliminary rounds of the Central North Competition now over, all four of the Tamworth Magpies teams were involved in semi-final matches over the weekend, and 3 out of 4 emerged victors - a great effort!  The Under 16s and Under 18s progressed to Finals next weekend with a chance to make the Grand Finals the following weekend.  First Grade held out the fast-finishing Barraba Rams to qualify for the Tier 2 Final in a fortnight, while the Reserve Grade (the Magpie team with the best home-and-away record) went down to the Narrabri Blue Boars in a tough encounter after a great season.

It should also be noted that the Tamworth Magpies Club finished 4th overall in the Club Championship this year, the best Club performance in over 10 years.  Look out for the Magpies in 2015!

Tamworth Rugby Club took four teams down to Quirindi on Saturday, Firsts and Reserves playing the Quirindi Lions and 16s and 18s playing Pirates. The Seniors both notched solid victories, but in the Juniors the Pirate teams proved too strong on the day.

The Under 16s game was a close encounter with Pirates notching their first victory over the Magpies this year. They led 12-0 at half-time, but the Tamworth team came back with two tries in the second half to go down narrowly 12-10, being unable to land a goal in the heavy conditions.  It should be noted that the Magpie Under 16s are the top-ranked Magpie team at present, being second on their ladder, still 3 points clear of Pirates but in turn 3 behind top side Quirindi.  The Scone Southern side is not far behind in 4th place, but the Magpies have beaten all of these teams at times during the season, and hopefully can do so again in the finals coming up soon.  Well done this team and their coaches Bernie Williams, Andrew Burke and Murray Lang.
