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.

The Tamworth Magpies hosted the Scone Brumbies at Tamworth Rugby Park on Saturday.  The high-flying Magpie Reserve Graders notched a solid victory while First Grade were run down by the speedy Brumbies late in the game.

In the Junior games, the Tamworth Under 18s showed improved form to earn an exciting draw with the Inverell Highlanders, while the Under 16s continued their good form with a 31-5 victory over the Gunnedah Western side.

On Saturday the Magpie Firsts scored a last-minute come-from-behind victory over the plucky Barraba Rams, and the Reserve Grade went down narrowly to top side Moree in a tough encounter.

At the end of the first round of the 2 Tier competitions, the Magpie Reserve Grade is fourth overall and First Grade is third in Tier 2.  But the most important statistic at this stage is that the Tamworth Magpie Club is fourth overall in the CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP, which includes Senior and Junior grades.  The Club's overall aim is to be the top CLUB in the Central North Competition, and this is our best placing for many years, showing how far the Club rebuilding has progressed...

The Magpie Firsts and Reserves played at Walcha on  Saturday, but in the new two-tier system, played different clubs.  Neither side produced their best rugby, both being defeated, First Grade 20-15 by Walcha and the Reserves 30-15 by SconeFirst Grade battled hard against the odds all day and got close to a victory, but the Reggies did not bring their A-grade game at all.  Despite the improvement shown by both teams this season, maybe they still have to go to another level to ensure wins away from home, especially the Reggies.
