Dolgellau 1sts 15 Rhuthun 1sts 22

Rhuthun defended against a vigorous Dolgellau attack from kick off before play moved into the home side’s 22.  This was the pattern for the first 20 minutes with both sides having to defend against the opposition’s attack in their own 22.  The stalemate was broken when after some good phase play Rhuthun’s wing Josh Wilson was released down the touch line for the first try.  Rhuthun kept up the pressure and 10 minutes later 2nd row Chris Davies went over the whitewash with full back Dyfan Humphreys converting.  Dolgellau responded and for the next 10 minutes the visitors had to defend against the home side’s attempts to get points on the board.  Eventually the pressure told and 2nd row Rhys Roberts scored.  Play returned to Dolgellau’s half but there was no further score and the first half ended with Rhuthun ahead 12-5.  Within a minute of the second half starting Dolgellau had reduced the arrears to 2 points when wing Geraint Owen scored a try.  For the next 20 minutes or so the home side’s defence held against repeated attempts by Rhuthun to widen the gap.  A penalty goal kick went wide and then with 15 minutes to go replacement Jamie Jones found a way through with an unconverted try.  The visitors kept up the pressure and 5 minutes before full time Jordan Jones made good ground upfield and Josh finished off the move with Rhuthun’s bonus point try.  Dolgellau returned to the attack and in the last move of the match prop Eon Williams nipped over Rhuthun’s line for their third try ensuring a loser’s bonus point and the whistle blew with Rhuthun winning 22-15.
