Coleg-Y-Cymoedd 36-23 Coleg Sir Gar

Coleg-Y-Cymoedd have sent a warning to the rest of the teams competing in the WRU Wednesday League by disposing of Coleg Sir Gar 36-23.

The fixture, played at the Cardiff Arms Park, was the first game in the Cup Competition of the league for the top two teams who qualified from the group stages.

After two big bonus point wins in their Group 3 matches, Coleg-Y-Cymoedd continued where they left off as they were far superior to their Carmarthenshire rivals scoring six tries in the process.

Such simple skills like knowing when to draw your opponent and give the correct pass were all executed perfectly for the home side and worked to a tremendous effect as Coleg Sir Gar had no answer to it.

Flanker Owen Jones opened the scoring for Coleg-Y-Cymoedd in the eighth minute of the match after a strong solo run.

To make matters worse for the visitors, second row Ryan Morgan and hooker Kieran Cullen were both sent to the sin bin for separate offences but Y-Cymoedd failed to capitalise on the two man advantage.

Instead it was Sir Gar who thought they would go in at the break ahead after a pair of penalties for fly-half Dan Jones put them 6-5 up before Lewis Morgan was put in at the corner.

With the game nicely poised at half time, the ‘Valleys College’ blitzed their opponents with three tries in six minutes to effectively secure the win.

Centres Harri Millard and Terri Gee both crossed along with Morgan grabbing his second to put their side in front by 31-6.

All tries were of a similar quality with some lovely handling and decision making on show from all involved.

Kurtis Williams scored his side’s sixth and final try with Sir Gar No. 8 Josh Middleton, winger Rhys Davies and replacement full back Aaron Foley all crossing in the second half to make the scoreline a bit more respectable.

The Coleg-Y-Cymoedd front row of Rob Lewis, Kieran Assaratti and captain Liam Belcher, who has been involved with Pontypridd this season, worked their socks off for their side and did not stop from the opening whistle.

Fly-half Jared Evans also looked dangerous whenever he had the ball in hand.

Coleg-Y-Cymoedd travel to Neath Port Talbot College next Wednesday, who they beat 47-5 in the group stages, while Sir Gar will look to bounce back when they travel to Bridgend College.
