One East Round Up

Penallta maintained their nearly two year unbeaten streak at home as they fought back from 10-0 down to see off Glamorgan Wanderers 34-15.

A minute's silence for a player's daughter who passed away suddenly this week
On a sombre day for the club, the match was dedicated to the memory of a player’s daughter who suddenly passed away in the week.

Gary Wilkes en route to the try line for his second try
A young Penallta side took a while to get going but eventually turned on the style, grabbing five tries through Gary Wilkes (2), Lewis Barnett, Gareth Edwards and Josh Evans. Wilkes also added nine points from the tee for a personal haul of 19.
Emotions were also running high at Heol-Y-Cyw during their 53-21 drubbing of Nelson.
 Following the tragic death of young prop Rob Smith in a road crash during the week, this was the perfect tribute the club could have paid to him.
 The Swalec Plate holders helped themselves to eight tries through brothers Zak and Adam O’Drsicoll, Darren Oram, Matthew Pound, Grant Hall, Keegan Alexander-Hall and a brace from Number 8 Kyle Lowry.
Meanwhile, Merthyr, who only just avoided relegation last season, look to be in better shape this term, as they put Treorchy to the sword 57-21 at the Oval.
Lee Jarvis’s men crossed for nine tries in all with centre Sam Edwards grabbing a try treble, Owen Morgan clinched a brace, while Isaac Duffy and Chris Chivers were also amongst the tries.
Ynysybwl sealed their second consecutive bonus point win with a comprehensive 47-18 result over Gilfach Goch.
 Winger Dale Stuckey raced to a hat-trick while Sean Ireland and Dion McIntosh were both at the double for Bwl.
 Elsewhere, last season’s runners up Ystrad Rhondda’s less than vintage start to the year continued as they lost out 35-29 to Rumney at Gelligalad.
The Cardiff side won 35-29 thanks to tries from scrum-half Dominic Perks, Chris Jones, hooker Michael Feneck and winger Tom Cross in a brutal encounter that saw Ystrad’s Carl Facey get shown a red card on the stroke of half time.

Finally, new boys Bedlinog notched up their first league win as they overcame Rhydyfelin 26-21.
