Leaders defeated in Shimmin Wilson Manx Shield

Holders keep hopes alive

Shield leaders Ramsey B suffered their second defeat of the season on Saturday.

They went down 20-12 away at Douglas B who are now favourites for the title.

First half tries from Nathan Knights and Tom Dutnall, plus two Bryn Snellgrove conversions, saw the teams turn round with Douglas 14-0 ahead.

In the second half, Ramsey struck back with tries from Andy Wilson and Jarred Callister and a conversion from Ben Harding.

However, Snellgrove landed two penalties at the other end to ensure the Douglas win.

Ramsey remain top of the standings but both Douglas and Southern Nomads have games in hand.

Holders Southern Nomads beat Vagabonds B 31-12 to keep their title hopes alive.

Tom Gascoyne and Bryan Kennaugh both touched down for Vagas, with Jack Rowlands converting one as they took a 12-0 lead.

Nomads, though, came back strongly, especially after the break, as tries from Gerard Landels, Fraser Veale, Jack Sleight, Leon Landels and Rob Keelan, plus three Tom Duggan conversions, saw them home safe.

At QEII in Peel, Western Vikings beat Castletown 54-7.

The tries for Vikings came from Paul Wheeldon, Joe Whitelegg, Ed Alderson, Winkie McLeod, Olly Creasey, Liam Sweeney and Jack Radcliffe (two).

Whitelegg kicked two conversions and Ryan Burke four.

Castletown’s consolation score came from Kunal Patel which Will Welsh converted.
