Omari scores again as Stags seal a win in Western Merit Table.
Garry Cullam Writes :-
Excellent Stags victory today. Must be said that without William Garth and Michael Carr stepping up to join Callum Wilson and Rory Bellis in the front row, points would have been conceded today if we'd gone uncontested, but as it turned out Will and Mick pulled out match winning performances, both tackling hard and carrying strong, for the rest of the squad to feed off. Tries for Mick Carr, Omari Kaup-Samuels, Ben Mitchell x 2, Tom Maudsley and Ryan Sumner with Ben converting 3 of the 6 (the other 3 Ben skilfully managed to hit the upright on successive conversions to win the top cuddly toy prize - a Callum Wilson cuddly doll). Keighley managed a score in the corner late on to retain some dignity. Highlights, Omari 3 from 4 starts, Tom Dean debut with a crunching tackle that the recipient commented WTF at being carried into touch and an overall top team performance across the park. Up the Stags.
Welcome return from William Garth, also welcome to Ryan Sumner. Thanks to Keighley for a good game.
