Ruthin’s away fixture at Mold was a must win to stay out of the relegation zone but despite a good period of attacking play in the second half the Blues were unable to come away with any reward. After the first few minutes the visitors came under sustained attack from Mold and had to defence well to prevent a score. Eventually Mold infringed in their own 22 and pressure was released with a penalty kick and lineout. Now in the home side’s 22 the Blues went on the attack, Mold conceded a penalty but the goal kick fell short and the Blues found themselves defending again in their own territory. This time they could not stop Mold from scoring and Ryan Kirby got the try converted by Jack Matthews. With their heads up Mold continued to attack and just before half time were awarded with a penalty which Matthews slotted over and the teams went with Mold 10-0 in the lead. For the first 20 minutes of the second half it was Mold’s turn to defend their line. Ruthin came close to scoring a couple of times and eventually on the 60th minute flanker Tudur Parry forced his way over the whitewash making the score 10-5 and sight of at least a loser’s bonus point. For a while the game became a defensive battle in midfield without either side making much headway but Mold gained ascendancy and were back in the Blues 22 where Kirby ran over for his 2nd try in the 70th minute with Cai Edwards converting. Mold continued to keep Ruthin on the defensive and in the closing minutes missed a penalty goal to go further ahead and the whistle blew with Mold winning 17-5.
