Loan watch | Monks, Smith and Wynn triumph in Warriors’ clash

Morgan Monks, Fin Smith and Ollie Wynn triumphed over their Warriors team-mate Tom Howe as Ampthill beat Coventry 21-19 at Dillingham Park in the Championship.

Monks played the full 80 minutes at number eight for the Bedfordshire club while fly-half Smith and scrum-half Wynn came off the bench to form a new half-back combination midway through the second half. All three Three Pears Warriors Academy players are on dual registrations with Ampthill.

Wing Howe, who is on loan at Coventry, also played the full 80 minutes but six penalties from Russell Bennett, built up Ampthill’s lead before Smith kicked what proved to be the decisive penalty eight minutes from time.

There were also four Warriors players in action at Mortimer Park where scrum-half Tom Miles helped Loughborough Students to a 28-22 win over hosts Luctonians in National Two North.

Miles scored two tries, including Loughborough’s winner, which meant disappointment for Luctonians who had three Warriors – loosehead prop Ben Murphy, lock Cheick Kone and flanker Jack Forsythe on their bench.

Tobi Wilson, who started at full-back, and hooker Finn Theobald-Thomas, who came off the bench, helped Stourbridge to a 30-5 win over Tynedale at Stourton Park to maintain their unbeaten start to the season.

Stourbridge’s side also included former Warriors scrum-half Michael Heaney who retired from full-time rugby at the end of last season.

Warriors back-row forward Caleb Montgomery made his league debut for Cornish Pirates in their 37-18 defeat by Hartpury in the Championship.

Montgomery, who began his loan spell at Pirates by scoring a try in their pre-season friendly against the Royal Navy, came on as 56th minute replacement at the Alpas Arena.
