Good service from Tring in Civil clash

TRING Rugby Club put in a strong display to beat Civil Service at home on Saturday.

The hosts were given the early advantage courtesy of a Tom Newton penalty, before the visitors replied with a try.

Tring hit back with a try of their own shortly later - Nathan Lambdon went over and Newton added the extras.

The visiting side weren’t about to lie down without a fight, though, and they ran in another try to bring the scores level.

However, a second-half Tim Loughnan try turned the match in Tring’s favour, and there was no looking back for the home side.

Newton converted, before tries from Richard Roberts and Gareth Briggenshaw gave the hosts a commanding 27-10 advantage with less than 10 minutes left to play.

Civil Service scored a late consolation try, but it did little to dampen the Tring spirits as they celebrated the deserved win.
