Bae Colwyn 3 Rhuthun 68

Ruthin scored 10 tries, 9 converted in a comprehensive win over Colwyn Bay on Saturday.  The Blues started with urgency and maintained the momentum for the whole 80 minutes scoring at regular intervals.  First over the line was centre Emyr Gwynedd, put through by fellow centre Nathan Jones who also converted.  Flanker Alex Pope followed with Nathan converting.  At 14-0 down the home side made their first attack into the Blues half and came away with a penalty goal.  Hooker Danny Miller scored almost immediately and again the home side tried to counter attack but solid defence kept them out and after 30 minutes good phase play allowed Ruthin to break from defence and wing Gethin Hughes was released to get the bonus point try with Nathan converting.  Just before half time Miller got his second try with the pack driving over from a lineout 5 yards out and the whistle blew with the visitors 35 – 3 ahead at half time.  The second half followed a similar pattern with the Blues scoring a further five tries from No 8 Arwyn Davies, wing Josh Wilson (2), and replacements Iestyn Davies and Arfon Thomas with Nathan converting 4 of them.  The home side never gave up trying to reduce the arrears and when they painstakingly worked their way upfield into Ruthin’s 22 were stifled by the opposition’s defence and ability to break from their own 22 and score.  As always Ruthin were well supported in this away fixture and a great cheer went up as the last try was scored by Arfon, his 1st for the 1st team and the game ended with the score 68-3 to Ruthin.  With the 2nds beating Caernarfon 48-10 and Youth winning 27-0 against Mold it was a good day for the club.
