COBRA 19 Rhuthun 5

After withstanding some early pressure from Ruthin, COBRA clicked into gear and after 15 minutes play centre Iwan Vaughn popped over the line for a try with Will Worthington converting.  COBRA kept up the pressure and their ascendancy In the scrum paid off when after 25 minutes No 8 Jack Jukes nipped out from a COBRA scrum 5 yards out from Ruthin’s line and scored.  The Blues tried to reduce the arrears but couldn’t get past a solid home defence and just before half time prop Hywel Jones got COBRA’s third try converted by Harry Jukes.  At 19-0 down and having lost two starting players to injury in the first half the Blues had their backs to the wall and had to try and claw back some points.  After 5 minutes they got some relief when the pack drove over the line and 2nd row Pete Harrison got a much needed try.  The Blues exerted some long periods of pressure in the COBRA 22 for much of the 2nd half but again the home side’s defence held.  Just before full time it was the visitors turn to defend well as COBRA tried to get their bonus point but all to no avail and the whistle blew with the score 19-5 to COBRA. With just 5 points separating the two relegation contenders everything now rests on the last game of the season for both teams with Ruthin at home to Mold and COBRA away to Colwyn Bay.
