Y Bala 10 Rhuthun 13

Ruthin were on the attack from the start in this WRU Plate match at Bala and were 5-0 after 5 minutes when centre Emyr Gwynedd put wing Josh Wilson through for an unconverted try.  For the rest of the half Bala were pretty much pinned into their own half as the Blues tried to get more points on the board but despite good phase play and some intelligent kicking the home side’s defence held and there was no further score before the whistle blew.  Straight after the break the visitors had to withstand some pressure from Bala but the lines were cleared and Bala conceded a penalty in Ruthin’s half.  From the resulting lineout on Bala’s 22, good phase play led to hooker Danny Miller putting centre Emyr Gwynedd through for an unconverted try.  Bala tried to respond but after good defence the Blues went back on the attack and went further ahead with a penalty goal from fly half Nathan Jones.  With 25 minutes to go Bala turned up heat and after another ten minutes 2nd Row Moi Dafydd drove the pack over the Ruthin line from a lineout 5 yds out for the home side’s 1st score.  Ruthin had to use all their resources to withstand the home side’s attack which they did until the 78th minute when after tying up the Ruthin defence against pick and run the ball was passed out to wing Elgan Evans to go over for an unconverted try.  With only three points between the teams, both sides tried to widen the gap in the few minutes left of injury time but defences held and the whistle blew with Ruthin winning 13-10.  The Blues will have to wait for the draw to see who they play next in the Plate competition.
