Rhuthun 85 Bae Colwyn 0

Despite being a player short and the game starting with uncontested scrums Colwyn Bay matched Ruthin for the first 15 minutes or so of this game moving the ball around effectively.  Both sides were testing each other’s defence but there was no score until Ruthin’s winger Arfon Thomas was fed the ball from a scrum 5yds from the visitors’ line and he nipped over for a try converted by fly half Nathan Jones.  After that the Blues took control and wing Josh Wilson went over for 2 tries in quick succession.   Colwyn Bay went up to 15 men and the scrums became contested but Ruthin’s try scoring continued with another 4 being scored before half time by prop Tom Crawford, 2nd row Sion Roberts and two more from Josh Wilson. With Nathan converting 5 of the 7 1st half tries the score at half time was 45-0 to Ruthin.  After the break there were two quick Ruthin tries from Nathan Jones and Josh Wilson both converted by Nathan and then the visitors went down to 14 men again with an injury. Although the visitors never gave up and played valiantly to the end they were no match for Ruthin’s scoring power and the Blues went over the whitewash a further 4 times before the final whistle with tries from No 8 Alex Pope and three more from Josh Wilson with Nathan converting 5 of them.  The final score was 85-0 to Ruthin who now look forward to a testing encounter away at Ystrad Rhondda in the 4th Round of the WRU plate.
