In a competition as close as this, the winning team will usually be decided by the effort put in to the preparation, and so it was. Argaum's perennial problem of lack of numbers at training nights was reflected not in individual performance with all players showing total committment to the cause but in the combined effort.

PRWF had 22 players at their training session prior to this match, something Argaum haven't been able to match since the end of the summer, and until this changes are destined to remain as runners-up. Argaum opted to play into the wind during the first half, and for a large part were on the defence. A number of times breaks were made by the three quarters with Lloyd Gould on the wing making good ground, though the PRWF line was never really threatened. As always Tommy Cooper at No.8 looked most likely to change this, but it wasn't to be. At the turn around the score was 6-0 following two PRWF penalty kicks and with the wind in their backs Argaum felt that the pattern of play would change, but it wasn't to be. An immediate try from the re-start by PRWF was the final score, and the rest of the game became a battle between both sides and the wet and muddy conditions. Congratulations to PRWF and good luck in the final.(AR)

Additional Info

  • Match Preview:

    The teams for Saturday's cup semi-final double header: Both games take place at Elburton (King George V Playing Fields) and are both 2:30pm kick-offs. The Chiefs take on PRWF in the RNEC Cup, whilst the Tigers play PRWF II in the Pedrick Cup. Like most clubs we've been affected by the F&M crisis. With our Bickleigh Down pitch still out of action we've had to improvise by training at Woolwell Community Centre for the last couple of weeks, whilst a club XV had a useful runout last week against Plymouth University at Central Park. We've had some close matches with PRWF this season and with cup-final places at stake both games are sure to be hard-fought. Chris 'Jock' Henderson makes his last appearance for us for a while as he is shortly to make a move abroad, so we hope to send him away on a winning note.

    Tigers: (from)W.Moulder, M.Organ, C.Sillitoe, S.Covell, P.Pring, T.Clifton, S.Barnes, T.Cooper, A.Davey, I.Griffiths, P.Perry, M.Hill, A.Rees(c), L.Gould, S.Lemon, K.Quickley, W.Lowndes, T.Liberson, A.Baillie, A.Mundy, S.Quarterman.
