Local derbies are always hard fought affairs but the match between Ruthin and Dinbych had an added edge as Ruthin wanted to stem their recent run of losses and Denbigh needed points to keep out of the relegation zone.  First points went to Dinbych with a penalty goal by Garin Roberts 5 minutes in and 5 minutes later the Blues fly half Deian Lloyd Williams reciprocated.  The visitors had the chance to take the lead again with another penalty goal kick but it went wide.  Dinbych were applying some pressure in Ruthin’s half but were unable to convert this into points and eventually a great kick from Lloyd Williams put the play back into the visitor’s 22.  After a Ruthin scrum, wing Josh Wilson was released and fought his way over the line for a good try.  The visitors responded and for the next 10 minutes the Blues had to defend in their own 22.  Denbigh grabbed 3 more points with a penalty goal but some good Blues tackling prevented any further score.  For the last 5 minutes of the 1st half Ruthin were back in the visitors 22 but there was no additional score and the whistle blew at 10-6 to Ruthin.  The first 20 minutes of the second half were played mostly in the visitor’s half but without Ruthin making much headway against a stout defence and eventually the visitors broke into the Blues 22.  The Blues conceded a penalty on their own 22 and Dinbych opted for a scrum and led by Dan Jones pushed over for a fine try converted by Roberts.  At 3 points down the Blues upped a gear and levelled the scores with a penalty goal from Lloyd Williams.  The Blues continued their pressure and after flanker Tudur Parry forced his way to within 5 metres of the visitor’s scrum half Will Mitchelmore collected and scored the Blues 2nd try which Lloyd Williams converted.  The match played out with the Blues in the ascendancy and winning 20-13.
