Bay face replay at the Shay

Colwyn Bay travel to The Shay tomorrow evening for their FA Trophy Third Round Qualifying replay with Halifax.
 The opening tie finished goalless in gale force conditions at Llanelian Road, but the Seagulls had two golden chances early on to clinch the tie.
The North Walians, however, will be happy in that they have the chance at a replay, with Chris Sanna’s penalty save proving vital for the hosts.
A home tie against Blue Square Premier outfit Lincoln City in the FA Trophy first round proper will be the reward if Jon Newby’s men can bag a win.

The hosts' hero of the day was Phil Thomas who amassed all of his team’s points through a race away interception touchdown, as well as firing home three penalties, a conversion and slotting two drop goals

The Squirrels' only try of the match came before the interval when a well worked move saw James Egan going over, Richard Saltmarsh added the extras to two earlier penalties.

Pacemakers Glynneath notched up their tenth victory with a hardfought 23-15 win over Loughor at Villa Field.
Both sides played some entertaining rugby in difficult conditions but it was the leaders that came out on top thanks to touchdowns from full back Dai Evans and backrow Grant Bignall, while the talented Jack O’Reily proved to be the difference, stroking home three penalties and both conversions.
The Blues meanwhile will feel a little hard done by to narrowly miss out on a losing bonus point, after themselves crossed twice through wing Richard Thomas and centre Jason Howells. Peter Smiriglia landed a conversion and a penalty.
Meanwhile, Maesteg finally secured their first point, albeit a losing bonus point, with the Llynfi Valley side losing out 8-6 at Felinfoel, but with new coach Richard Webster at the helm, things are looking up for the strugglers.
Felinfoel crossed for the only try of the match in the first half through Dan Thomas, with Rhys Williams slotting a penalty to take an 8-0 advantage into the interval.
It was Maesteg, however, that had the better of the second half with Aled Thomas slotting two penalties and the Llynfi Valley should have pinched victory at the death, but their penalty attempt drifted just wide of the upright.
Elsewhere, Kenfig Hill remain hot on the heels of pacemakers Glynneath after the Mules picked up a 16-3 victory at Kidwelly, with Tom Briggs going over for the only try of the match.
Crymych’s form continues to improve after seemlingly getting the monkey off their back with a win a couple of weeks back and the new boys picked up their second, running out 21-5 home victors over Builth Wells.
Finally, Skewen notched up their fifth win defeating Aberystwyth 17-10 at Plascrug.

Steelmen prove their metal

The Steelmen were trailing at the break, 12-7, but moved up a gear after the interval, adding to their first half penalty try with scores from Charlie Simpson, Nicky Coughlin and Tom Ashmead to bag the try bonus point. The ever reliable Dorian Jones added all four conversions.
The hosts had looked to be on course for an upset crossing for two early tries though Bradley Coombes and Robert Jones, with Cameron Pimlow adding a conversion, but it all began to fall apart before the break, conceding a penalty try and then having to go to passive scrums after the interval.
Newbridge slipped to another uncharacteristic defeat at struggling Glamorgan Wanderers, going down 22-9 at the Memorial Ground.
Joe Xiberras touches down for Wanderers
The Wanderers bounced back from their drubbing last week to run in three second half touchdowns through Owen Marshall, Dan Lovell and talented centre Joe Xiberras. Gareth Cull slotted two conversions to add to his first half penalty.
Newbridge, who created many problems for themselves, were restricted to three first half Bevan Howells penalties.
Meanwhile, Treorchy staged a second half fightback to bag their seventh win, running out 34-15 victors over Merthyr at the Oval with proceedings not getting underway till 3pm, as the referee got lost on his way to the ground.
The Zebras, trailing 15-3 at the break, were brought back to life in the second half by braces for Tristan Lazarus and centre Peter Hutchins. Outside half Celyn Ashton had another solid afternoon firing home two penalties and all four conversions.
The Ironmen’s scores came through Geraint Edmunds and Aaran Howard touchdowns, with Jonathan Foster slotting a penalty and a conversion.
Elsewhere, Gilfach Goch broke into the top three with a dominant 30-6 home success over Rumney at the Welfare Ground
Gowch ran in three tries through back row James Lock and a brace from centre Sean Roberts while Ian Davies notched up 15 points with the boot.
The visitors meanwhile could only manage two Dan Clarke penalties either side of the interval.
Elsewhere,  Bargoed remain four points off the summit thanks to a try bonus, 28-0 home win over Mountain Ash.
The high-flyers made light work of the newcomers and crossed four times through Rhys Humphries, Lee Pearson, Lewis Wayman and Matthew Hurley, with the latter also slotting three conversions and Josh Prosser stroking home another.
Finally, the match between Tredegar and Blackwood was postponed as the ground was double booked by the WRU, staging both that match and Tredegar Ironsides' clash with Pill Harriers, which incidentally ended up being called off due to a waterlogged pitch.

Narberth swoop to the summit

Narberth took full advantage of leaders Llangennech’s slip up to swoop to the summit of Division One West for the first time this season with a narrow 20-18 victory over Tondu at a wet and windy Pandy Park.
The Otters crossed for twice either side of half time with Timosci Kaumaitotya and captain Steve Martin both touching down, while outside half Nick Jones was the hero of the day for the visitors kicking ten points, including a crucial penalty five minutes from time.
Both teams were reduced to 14 players when a punch-up broke out, with Narberth losing flanker Gareth Bateman and the hosts' wing Darren Thomas also being dismissed.
The Waterwheelers once again put in a performance that belies their position in the table playing good rugby in difficult conditions and touched down twice in the opening half through Mark Roberts and David Griggs. Dean Thomas landed a conversion and slotted two penalties.
Llanharan produced the surprise of the day defeating former pacemakers Llangennech 16-0 at the Dairy Field.
It was perhaps no shock that in difficult conditions the streetwise hosts' pack came to the fore, dominating at the set piece throughout. The Dairymen took a 6-0 lead into the interval thanks to two Chris Williams penalties and sealed the win by crossing for two second half touchdowns through flanker Scott Malone and wing Josh Austin.
Tata Steel sit just one point off the top thanks to their ninth victory coming out on top, 13-7, in a low scoring encounter against Bridgend Athletic at Newbridge Fields.
The honours were even going into the break at 7-7, but two second half penalties from the ever reliable boot of outside half Diggy Bird saw the Steelmen home to a crucial win. Bird also converted Tylan Mafi’s first half touchdown.
Athletic, who have now lost four on the bounce, will have to be content with a losing bonus point courtesy of a James Olds try, which Tom Davies added the extras to.
Meanwhile, UWIC released the shackles to run out 44-13 home winners over Ammanford.
The students crossed the visitors' line five times through props Jordan Saunders and Mick Halse, with flankers Craig Howells and Kyle Taylor also going over in the first half, and wing Pierre Tucker crossing the whitewash after the break. Mark Cooke added fourteen points with the boot and replacement fly half Rhydian Morris landed a penalty and conversion.
Newcomers Ammanford were restricted to a first half try from Samson Lee with young outside half Carwyn Richards slotting a conversion and two penalties.
Elsewhere, struggling Bonymaen fell to their ninth defeat, going down 14-9 at Whitland.
The Borderers' Jack Mason touched down in the first half and bagged the victory thanks to two Nico Setaro penalties, with Scott Newton adding another.
Bony meanwhile could only manage a first half Paul Warlow penalty but Richie Cunniffe crossed the whitewash after the interval to bag a losing bonus point.
Finally, Waunarlwydd’s poor run of results continued, slipping to a 34-7 home loss at the hands of Carmarthen Athletic.
Athletic helped themselves to five tries through Luke Marshall, Scott Maynard, Tom Sloane, Gareth Bennett and Pan Rashesa. Maynard also added three conversions and a penalty.
The Green and Blacks' only try of the match came in the first half through Matthew Wedlake, with Johnny Davies firing home the conversion.

Scarlets clinch semi-final spot

Scarlets on the offensive in their 23-19 victory

Blues North U16 travelled to Parc y Scarlets on Wednesday evening to take on the Scarlets in what was a must-win game for the West Wales region, and the hosts didn’t disappoint, outscoring their rivals 23-19.

The Blues arrived in strong and confident mood, looking to gain revenge for the defeat they suffered earlier in the season at Abercynon.

The visitors started with real intent scoring two tries within the opening five minutes for winger Morgan Raison and fullback Josh Williams to take a 12-0 lead.

The Scarlets responded well and the evening’s third try came soon after, with the West Wales outfit getting on the scoreboard when winger Luke Morris raced in after the Blues were penalised at the scrum.

The hosts now looked a real danger in attack, especially with outside half Daniel Jones pulling the strings, keeping his side camped deep in to Blues territory.

It seemed as though a second try was imminent for the Scarlets and despite pushing strongly on the Blues’ try line, the ball was lost forward, but eventually got their reward on 28 minutes when speedster Morris bagged his second of the night

The Blues failed to lie down though and responded with a touchdown of their own to take a 10-19 advantage, but it was the hosts that would have the final say before the interval, with centre Matthew Pearce crossing the whitewash to reduce the visitors' lead to 19-15.

The second half saw the same intensity with both teams pushing hard to the try line but neither were able to capitalise.

However, it was the Scarlets that finally made the breakthrough first, firing home a penalty and then touching down for a well taken try to seal a 23-19 victory and secure their place in the semi-finals of the WRU Age Grade Championship.

Dockers handed stern test in FAW Trophy

SWANSEA Dockers will face a tough trip to South Wales Amateur League side Ton & Gelli BGC in the fourth round of the FAW Trophy.
The Dockers, second in the Swansea Senior League first division, were drawn to face the Rhondda outfit on January 14 after beating Llandrindod Wells in round three last weekend.
Two goals from Kyle Morgan, one from Anthony Price and an own goal gave the Swansea club a 4-2 victory to put them one win away from the quarter-finals.
Ton & Gelli are currently fourth in the first division of their league and accounted for Aberaeron in the last round, winning 4-3 at home against the west Walians.
Newport YMCA, Risca United and Abercarn United were all kept apart in the draw for the FAW Trophy fourth round.
While Abercarn and Risca both have home ties, the YMCA, fifth in MacWhirter Welsh League division two, are on the road following last weekend’s extra-time victory at home against Llangynwyd Rangers in round three.
They visit South Wales Senior League second division side Sully Sports on January 14 with the quarter-finals just one win away.
Spar Mid Wales League first division leaders Rhayader Town travel to Abercarn and South Wales Amateur League division two outfit Hirwaun Welfare go to Risca.
Fourth-round draw; (south) Abercarn Utd v Rhayader Town, Risca Utd v Hirwaun Welfare, Sully Sports v Newport YMCA, Ton & Gelli BGC v Swansea Dockers, (north) Holywell Town v Denbigh Town, Llanrug Utd v Holyhead Hotspurs, Llanrwst Utd v Venture Community, Pwllheli v Brymbo

Wanderers aiming for complete performance against Newbridge

Try scorer against Ebbw Vale Mike Stephens bags a  place in the starting line-up.

Glamorgan Wanderers who were outclassed at Ebbw Vale last weekend, face another stern test when they welcome Newbridge to the Memorial Ground tomorrow.

“We must find a way to compete at every aspect of the game, at present we are not putting together complete performances” commented head coach Chris Ower before the visit of Newbridge.

“Newbridge will be smarting after their defeat at home last week. They will be keen to get back to winning ways. We must gain parity up front, if we are to have any chance.” added forwards coach Matthew Bolton.

For the visit of Newbridge the Wanderers make 4 changes to the side that came out second best at Ebbw Vale. In the backs Mike Stephens, last week’s try scorer, retains his place at full back after coming on as a sub and Charlie Johnson returns to the centre after missing last week’s game through injury. Up front Alex Bourne comes in as open-side flanker and Ross Grimstone gets his first start at hooker. Rhodri Dawes and Sean Carroll also join the squad for the first time.

Laura's weekend predictions

Bargoed v Mountain Ash
Second placed Bargoed will be eager to keep up the pressure on pace makers, Ebbw Vale, and will see this as a prime opportunity to do so.
Verdict-Bargoed by 15 points.
Beddau v Ebbw Vale
Beddau picked up a good win last weekend and have been tough to beat at home this year, and should therefore prove a decent test for the well-organised Ebbw Vale, but I see the Steel Men’s clinical backs having just too much for the hosts.
Verdict-Ebbw Vale by 10 to 15 points.
Gilfach Goch v Rumney
Goch, who are on a six match winning streak, will be desperate to remain within close proximity of the top three. Rumney have had a mixed bag of a season so far but are definitely capable of pulling out big performances.
Verdict-Gilfach Goch by 7 points.
Glamorgan Wanderers v Newbridge
High-flying Newbridge will be eager to banish the memories of last week’s defeat by basement boys Tredegar and I think the Wanderers' suspect defence may prove just the tonic.  
Verdict- Newbridge by 12 points.
Treorchy v Merthyr
Treorchy edged a tight affair last week and that should stand them in good stead for the visit of Merthyr, but with little to choose between the two sides, it could come down to a kick here or there.
Verdict- Treorchy by 3 points

Laura's weekend predictions

Bridgend Athletic v Tata Steel
Athletic’s misery on their travels continued last weekend when they lost out narrowly at struggling Bonymaen and, after losing three on the bounce, the Bridgend outfit will be glad to walk out to the welcoming comforts of Newbridge Fields. The Steelmen, who although haven't lost since the first week of October, have rather stuttered to wins of late and were out played for much of last week’s victory against Tondu.
Verdict - Tata Steel by 4 points
Llanharan v Llangennech
Llanharan picked up a good win in the reverse fixture between these sides and have been strong at home so far this season. Leaders Llangennech, however, have been producing some very good performances this year but have been prone to the odd slip-up like the narrow loss at Bonymaen, but if they keep their concentration for the full 80 minutes they should pick up another win.
Verdict - Llangennech by 7 points
Tondu v Narberth
The Waterwheelers will take a lot of heart out of last week’s defeat at Tata Steel with the new boys knowing that perhaps with a bit more experience at this level, they would have come away with a win. The Otters, who were many people’s favourites for the title before the season, have been steadily making their way towards the top of the table despite their shaky start.
Verdict - Narberth by 10 points
UWIC v Ammanford
The students have lost the last three on the bounce, slipping to mid-table but the youngsters, with such a strong squad to chose from, look to be coming back to form after only going down at Llangennech to a last minute drop goal. Ammanford meanwhile have drafted in some Llanelli Academy players and have bagged two wins from their last three matches. I think both sides will try to play an expansive game.
Verdict - UWIC by 5 points
Waunarlwydd v Carmarthen Atheltic
The Green and Blacks seem to have a knack of not waking up till half time in games so far this season but have produced some dramatic comebacks, only to fall just short. With the Christmas break just around the corner, the hosts will be desperate to pick up another win, especially as their next encounter sees them travelling to Llangennech. Athletic on the other hand have really gained some momentum, notching up four wins from their last five matches.
Verdict - Waunarlwydd by 2 points
Whitland v Bonymaen
The Borderers have had a very solid season so far and sit only four points off the summit, while Bony have really struggled and have only one once on the road.
Verdict- Whitland by 10 points
