Rhuthun 12 Caernarfon 13

When Coffi’s wing Iolo Hughes jigged past three sleeping Ruthin players to score a converted try just 2 minutes into the game little did the Blues know how important that score was going to be.  After that try Ruthin woke up and within 10 minutes had reduced the gap with an unconverted try from No 8 Chris Davies.  Although an open game with good flowing rugby from both sides defences were dominating.  After a period of Ruthin pressure with no reward the visitors broke out of defence into the home side’s 22 and won a penalty which Aled Jones slotted over widening the gap to 10-5 to Caernarfon.  The Blues were soon back in the visitors half and after some good pressure drove over for a second try from Davies converted by scrum half Deian Lloyd Williams.  In the closing minutes of the first half Caernarfon missed a penalty goal attempt and the Blues got over the Coffi’s try line but the ball was judged not to have been grounded and the sides went in with Ruthin 12-10 ahead.  For the first 25 minutes of the second half the play was all in the Blues half as Caernarfon tried to regain the lead and Ruthin did well to withstand a thrusting Caernarfon attack.   Eventually they conceded a penalty on their 10 yard line which moved up to a very kickable penalty on the Blues 22 after some dissent.  Jones kicked the penalty goal and the Coffis were back in the lead by 1 point.  It was now the Blues who turned on the pressure but despite some great play in the last 15 minutes they couldn’t get past a worthy Caernarfon defence and the game ended with the visitors winning 13-12.
