Ruthin 26 Abergele 32

Ruthin lost 26-32 but came away with 2 bonus points in this hard fought match against newly promoted Abergele.  The visitors started well forcing Ruthin to concede penalties well within kicking distance for Gele’s Owain Davies who put the visitors 6 points up within 15 minutes.  The Blues responded with a driving maul for a good 10 yards in the visitors 22 with 2nd row Deian Lloyd Williams grabbing the try and fly half Lewis Isaac converting.  Both sides were playing fast open rugby and the Blues went further ahead with a fine try from scrum half Phyl Roberts with Isaacs again converting.  But within minutes Gele’s Ritchie Williams to break through Ruthin’s defence for a converted try closing the gap to 14-13 to the home side.  With 15 minutes to go the Blues backs combined to put flanker Ben Taylor over for their 3rd try and just before half time replacement Arwyn Davies secured Ruthin’s bonus point try and the teams went in with Ruthin 26-13 in the lead.  The second half was played in similar fashion with rugby moving from end to end.  The Blues were finding it difficult to capitalise on territorial advantage and possession but the visitors were always dangerous on the break and narrowed the gap with a try from Anthony Tilley.  Then with 15 minutes to go the visitors Steve Wiggill capitalised on a Blues handling error and went over for Gele’s 3rd try which Davies converted.  With the score at 26-25 to Ruthin the Blues tried to open up the gap but despite sustained pressure were unable to get over the whitewash and eventually with minutes to go the visitors won a penalty which they kicked into touch in Ruthin’s 22 and Tilley went over for his second try which Davies converted.  Both sides got bonus points with the Blues 2 points lifting them off bottom spot.
