THE Chiefs' preparations for their match with Plympton were hit by availability problems, but their disrupted side still got the first points on the board from centre Phil Hall, with Steve Tomlinson converting.

Stretch King converted twice and slipped over a penalty for Plympton to lead 17-7 at the break.

Early in the second half, King added another penalty, and by return centre Phil Morgan slipped through the Victoria defence, with Tomlinson making it 20-14. Argaum's joy was short lived as Plympton bounced straight back with King slotting his third conversion.

The home side pressed and number eight replacement, Mark Matthew, was driven over the Plympton line but the kick from wide out went astray.

Argaum laid on the late pressure, but were caught off guard with an interception try.

Plympton took their first win of the season with tries from scrum half Neil Wright, centre Taff Oakley, flanker Gary Livingstone and winger Gareth Espin.
