Championship Review - 5th October

Bonymaen upset the odds yesterday afternoon after notching their first victory of the season in the Swalec Championship.

‘Bony’ were successful at Parc Mawr for the first time in the new campaign as they managed to hold on for a 17-15 result against Tondu.

The hosts sealed the win thanks to tries from Ben Davies and Jonathan Jones as well as two conversions and a penalty from Richard Cunliffe.

Ebbw Vale continued their push for promotion with a one-sided 45-6 victory over Blackwood at Eugene Cross Park.

The Glan-Yr-Afon outfit were still in the game at the break as they only trailed 12-6 but a brutal second half showing from the Steelmen saw them score 33 unanswered points.

Ronny Kynes was superb once again as he helped himself to four tries with the rest coming from stand-in skipper Ashley Sweet, Carl Meyer and a penalty try.

Blackwood have won only once so far this season and will be hoping for a major improvement over the coming weeks.

Narberth and Cardiff Met played out an entertaining 36-36 draw at the Lewis Lloyd Ground.

Mark Cooke kicked 21 points for the students along with scores from speedy winger Pierre Tucker, Sam Jones and Ben Ellis to match two Jonny Morgan tries, a try and a penalty for Nick Gale and 18-points from fly-half Ianto Griffiths for the Otters.

Tata Steel came back from 13-0 down at half time to earn an impressive victory at Bridgend Athletic.

Second half tries from Gareth Edwards and Ross Pritchard added with two conversions and four penalties for Simon Evans secured the spoils for the Saints.

Llanharan scored five tries in their home defeat of Newbridge.

The Championship’s leading points scorer Codey Rees added another 17 to his tally with a try, three conversions and two penalties.

Pontypool are now in second place in the league after they handed RGC 1404 another home loss.

The North Wales outfit have yet to win at home in the Championship this season with their only victories coming away at Narberth and Blackwood.

Trevor James scored twice for Pooler to help his side overtake the Students of Cardiff Met.

Meanwhile, Bargoed dominated Beddau from the first whistle and scored four tries in the opening 17 minutes before winning 45-10 at Bargoed Park.

Lewis Protheroe and Darren Humphries both scored twice for the home side as they ran in seven tries against the Green and Golds.
