Vagabonds B beat Western Vikings 66-5 at Ballafletcher on Saturday to add the Manx Plate crown to the Manx Shield they won earlier this season.

A dominant first-half performance gave Vagas the game. Tries from Danny Cain, James Clarke (2), Leigh Kennaugh (2), Arno Cruywagen and Kym Tomlinson plus five Leigh Kennaugh conversions gave Vagas a 45-0 lead at the break.

In the second half, Clarke added his third, Cruywagen his second and Piers Dillon also grabbed one with Kennaugh converting all three to give Vagas a 66-0 lead.

In the closing stages Vikings started to get back into the game and they eventually picked up a consolation score from fullback Sam Peel.
