Cinderford beat Worthing Raiders 29-27 thanks to a dramatic late converted try by Gloucester golden boy Carwyn Penny.
Cinderford started the game terribly, and it didn’t take long for their opponents to take advantage of the slow start, scoring 2 unconverted tries within the first five minutes, both scored by Jonathan Dawe.
Worthing continued to apply pressure even after Cinderford’s Matt Lane managed to get over the line for a try which James Moffat converted. Scoring again to further their lead.
Just prior to half time the visitor’s Cinderford got their second try of the game once again through Lane.
The early stages of the second half were dominated by penalties until Rob Winchle found his way over the try line to reduce the deficit with the additional 2 points coming from the boot of Moffat.
Despite some steely defence from Worthing, Cinderford eventually made their pressure tell when Penny broke through to score the all important try. Replacement kicker Liam Hemming still had to kick the 2 points in order to edge Cinderford in front, which he duly did, giving Cinderford the spoils.
