It was a mixed day for the Forbes Magpies when they hosted Dubbo CYMS at Spooner Oval last Sunday with the Reserves and the Under 18s winning 22-18 and 28-12 respectively, but the Firsts going down 36-28. The Magpies let a few chances slip but in the end the size and pace of the well oiled CYMS outfit won the day and took them to
the top of the Group XI First Grade ladder, replacing Parkes who were beaten 48-36 by Dubbo Westside. Forbes remains in third position on the ladder.
In other First Grade matches, Narromine trounced Cobar Roosters 58-10 while Wellington won a much closer contest 32-24 against Dubbo Macquarie. The win by Magpies Reserves took them to the top of the ladder, replacing CYMS. The Under 18s maintained their position as competition leaders. Next Sunday the three Magpies sides will be at home again, this time against Nyngan.
