Rhuthun 74 Llangefni 7

Rhuthun welcomed Llangefni to Cae Ddol on Saturday 12th October and on arrival the Llangefni Chairman expressed his worry that ten of his squad we’re away in Japan following Wales’s progression in the World Cup!


Rhuthun started the game lively retaining the ball for long periods of play and quickly notched up a healthy lead.  Strong carrying from Wacko Wilson, Robat Lewis, Owain Jones and Cam Lumsden broke down the Cefni defence and the backs took advantage of the space out wide.   Llangefni’s pack fought hard early on in the set piece but as the game progressed Rhuthun’s front five started to dominate which gave Arwyn Davies the perfect platform to pick from the base and make huge yardage down the blindside time and time again supported by Captain Matt Roberts and Owain Jones, two or three phases hitting it up by the forwards left the Cefni defence in disarray out wide with Ruthin’s backs direct running and transferring the ball through the hands to again give the back three of Nathan Jones, Josh Wilson and Gwion Richards plenty of space to attack out wide.  The home side went into half time with a convincing 51 – 0  lead.


Llangefni’s half time talk saw them come out firing and they started the 2nd half strong keeping the ball tight, hitting it up hard around the fringes and asking questions of Rhuthun’s tight defence.  Emyr Gwynedd replaced Phyl Bodynys (wrist injury) at half time and Rhuthun were keen to play expansive rugby every time they had possession with the Jones brothers (Mike and Norman) centre partnership and Iestyn Davies constantly breaking through the line and were unlucky not to score on several occasions just with the final pass not going to hand.  Llangefni scored a well deserved consolation try ten minutes from full time which spurred Ruthin into action again with Wilson and Iestyn Davies crossing again for the Blues.  Coach Eifion Lewis-Roberts rotating his squad was pleased with the performances of front row players Danny Miller and Richard Williams who both played a full 80 minutes and the return of his younger brother Sion T Roberts at 2nd row.  Try scorers: Josh Wilson 5, Iestyn Davies 2, Arwyn Davies 2, Nathan Jones 1, Robat Lewis 1.    MOM: Matt Roberts (Bodynys)
