Llangefni 33 Ruthin 19

The leagues two bottom sides met on a sunny October afternoon in Llangefni.

Despite early Ruthin pressure Llangefni took an early 6-0 through two softly given penalties. Ruthin continued to dominate territory and possession but were hit by a length of the pitch interception from a wayward Phyl Roberts pass. As the half wore on Llangefni gained more and more possession capitalising on Ruthin's mistakes. They scored their second try from a pushover scrum giving a score of 18-0 at the half.

 

The second half started with Ruthin on top and scored first via a superb solo effort from Ben Taylor converted by Deian Williams. Minutes later with Ruthin in full control of the game Josh Wilson rounded the defence to narrow the gap to 18-14 following another conversion for Deian Williams. Llangefni restored a 7 point lead with a penalty to lead 21-14. They then scored their 3rd try with another Ruthin mistake gifting their outside half the easiest of run ins. 28-14 to Llangefni. With time running out Ruthin tried to run in from their own line and again coughed up possession giving Llangefni their bonus point try. Ruthin got a late consolation try through Mike Evans leaving the score at 33-19 at the final whistle. Ruthin with hope to bounce back against Pwllheli next week.
