There were thrills aplenty at Ballakilley Park where Ramsey B edged out Emerging Nomads 19-17 after Nomads had led for much of the match.

Percy Hampton and Orry Watterson both crossed for Nomads and a Sean Christian conversion gave them a 12-0 lead.

Makeshift number eight Conor Goodall pulled one back for Ramsey with Ben Harding converting before Watterson went in for his second of the game to restore the Nomads advantage.

As the game entered its final stages Ramsey struck twice to claim the points. Juan Callister went in for the first and when Jake Richmond bagged the second the scores were tied and Ben Harding’s conversion proved to be the match winner.

At QEII, Western Vikings snatched a very early lead through Jack Goodwin.

However tries from Ethan Kermode and Cole Donnelly plus a Tom Rowley conversion gave Vagas a 12-5 half-time lead.

Matt Rockwell extended that early in the second half and with just over 10 to play Kermode dived in for his second to claim a try bonus point for Vagas. In the final 10 Vikings threw everything and the kitchen sink at their visitors but the Vagas defence stood firm.
