Rhuthun 30 Bro Ffestiniog 0

Ruthin bagged a much needed bonus point win in this competitive match at Cae Ddol on Saturday.  It was clear from the start that both sides were up for the contest on a lovely early Spring day and a firm pitch. Although Ruthin were first on the scoreboard after 15 minutes with a penalty goal from wing Nathan Jones, the visitors missed a couple of opportunities to even up the score themselves as penalty goal kicks went wide.  The Blues added to their score after a further 10 minutes when the Parry brothers Huw, on the wing, and Steffan, flanker, combined to release full back Kyle Davies to score the first try.  Ruthin camped in the visitor’s 22 trying to increase the score but sterling defence by Bethesda kept them at bay until on the 40th minute the Blues were awarded a penalty which Nathan kicked over and Ruthin were 11-0 up at half time.  The visitors started strongly in the second half and it was Ruthin’s turn to successfully muster their defence to prevent a score. The play switched to Bethesda’s half when after some great phase play, Sion Roberts seared over the line for a try which Nathan converted.  The Blues began to play with more freedom and less anxiety and in the next 10 minutes playing some lovely rugby fly half Jamie Jones and wing Huw Parry grabbed a try each, one of which Nathan converted putting the score at 30-0 to the Blues.  With 20 minutes to go the visitors tried to reduce the arrears and Ruthin had to defend well against a determined attack with at times having to put all their energy and resources into keeping Bethesda from getting over the try line.  Eventually the Blues were awarded a scrum in their own 22 from which they were able to clear their lines, the play switched to Bethesda’s half and after a few minutes play the whistle blew for full time.  This was another good performance by Ruthin against strong opposition and sets them up well for the crucial match against Bethesda in 2 weeks time.
