MORGAN PASSMAN enjoyed a senior debut to remember as he claimed four tries in Darlington Mowden Park’s emphatic 49-22 home win over Plymouth Albion.

Mowden outscored their opponents by six tries to three in an open, expansive encounter, with Passman taking the individual honours as he impressed on the wing.

His first try, which was also his first score in a Mowden shirt, came inside the opening ten minutes, and saw him round off a break from Ben Dixon down the left flank.

Fly-half Warren Seals converted Passman’s opening try, and added three quickfire penalties to extend his side’s early advantage to 16 points.

Plymouth clawed back a penalty of their own after George Stokes was yellow carded, but the visitors were reduced to 14 men themselves shortly after following a high tackle from Seta Raumakita, and Mowden capitalised.

Passman turned creator for Mowden’s second try, breaking a tackle on the halfway line before playing in fellow winger Brandon Asher-Wood.

The 20-year-old claimed his second score shortly before the interval, latching on to a break from full-back Callum Irvine to ensure Mowden headed into the break with a 30-3 advantage.

Passman rounded off his hat-trick from the second-half kick-off, breaking a couple of tackles as he raced 80 yards to claim his side’s bonus-point try.

Seals converted, but Plymouth responded with two well-taken tries from Dan Swain as well as a further score from winger Dean Squire.

Mowden had eased up at that stage, but they finished strongly with Passman’s fourth try of the afternoon and a further score from Talite Vaioleti.
