Vagas thrashed in rugby

It was a miserable day for Vagabonds in South Lancashire/Cheshire Division One on Saturday.

They were thrashed 74-17 at Ormskirk as their poor run continued.

There was much better news for Douglas who continued their fine debut season in Division Two with a 25-0 win at Crewe & Nantwich.

Tries from Christian Brew, Sam Randall and Mike Hebden, plus two penalties and two conversions from the reliable boot of Bryn Snellgrove, secured back-to-back away wins.

And Ramsey kept alive their promotion hopes in Division Four after they thrashed St Mary's Old Boys 54-3 at the Mooragh Park.

There were two tries from Tynan Pritchard, plus one each from brother Aneurin, James Stewart, Lance Wylie, John Watlin and Matt Livesey.

Nick McCudden kicked all the other points for the home side.

Southern Nomads moved closer to the Shimmin Wilson Manx Trophy after a heavy defeat of Ramsey B.

A hat-trick of tries from Steve McHugh and one apiece from the returning skipper Andy Lean, Ross McCullogh, Nick Moreby, Tom Duggan and Harry Brereton sealed a 52-5 romp.

Mike Craine notched the consolation try for Ramsey.

The race for the Shimmin Wilson Manx Bowl remains alive after Castletown won well, 19-13 at Douglas B.

Tries from Lewis O’Brien, Darryl Richards and Luke Purdey, plus two conversions from Sam Peel, ensured the points went down south.

John Hill was among the Douglas scorers.
