Swalec Championship Round Up

Ebbw Vale racked up six tries as they eased to a 41-3 victory over Narberth at Eugene Cross Park yesterday afternoon.

The Steelmen rarely got out of second gear as the game was wrapped up by half time with them leading 29-3.

The influential Ronny Kynes, who was a nuisance all afternoon to the Otters, scored the first try of the match after he stormed in from 20 metres.

Gareth Rusby-Davies scored on his first start for Jason Strange’s men as did Gareth Williams and winger Sion Jones bagged a brace.

This was Narberth’s second defeat in succession and they will look to bounce back next weekend when they host Bargoed.

 Ebbw Vale will also be expecting a sterner test when they travel to Cyncoed to take on Cardiff Met.

The students notched their third consecutive bonus-point win in an impressive 26-12 result in Colwyn Bay against RGC 1404.

With a crowd of well over 1100 at Parc Eirias, many would have been expecting an exciting encounter.

But Chris Davey’s troops were always in control and scored four tries through James Beale, Gavin Smith, Mark Cooke and Will Baird.

RGC were in charge up front and earned a penalty try for their efforts as well as a Hywel Grundy effort.

Tondu managed their first ever win in the Championship after they held off Bridgend Athletic 20-15.

Darren Thomas and Ashton Evans scored for the Waterwheelers as they got themselves off the foot of the table.

Bargoed ground out a 19-11 victory over Tata Steel at Bargoed Park after losing to Ebbw Vale last weekend.

Jordan Purcell scored the home sides only try while Josh Prosser added 12 points from the tee.

Josh Austin responded with the Saints only try of the game and Simon Evans got the extras with two penalties.

Beddau gained an impressive 19-8 win over Newbridge in a tight game that could have gone either way.

Steve Robinson kept his nerve to kick 12 points for the Green and Golds as well as a James Davies try to give them their second win in a row.

Elsewhere Bonymaen are still in search of their first win this season after being soundly beaten at home by Blackwood.

Rhodri Usher, Justin Jones, Henry Palmer and two Matthew McGovern efforts helped the Glan-Yr-Afon Park outfit to a 34-13 success.

Finally, Pontypool also tasted defeat for the first time after going down 21-6 away at Llanharan.
