Swalec Championship Review - 26th October

RGC 1404 secured an impressive 22-6 victory away at Tata Steel in a fiery encounter that saw the home side’s back-row star Bill Carey sent off for violent conduct 15 minutes before the final whistle.

The North Wales region were expected to use their heavy forwards to try and match up to the bruising Saints pack and handled the job well.

Fly-half Lewis Barker stole the show for the Parc Eirias outfit scoring 17-points for his team including two tries, two conversions and a penalty whilst Tom Blackwell also went over.

Tata Steel rarely looked like threatening and could only manage two penalties from Gareth Walters.

Beddau bounced back to winning ways after last week’s defeat to local rivals Llanharan by beating basement boys Bonymaen 22-10.

The Green and Gold’s managed three tries through David Francis, Tom Payne and Glenn Slater in reply to a single try for Bonymaen’s Nathan Brooks.

Leaders Ebbw Vale are still undefeated in the Swalec Championship after their comprehensive 39-10 win away at Newbridge.

The Steelmen scored five tries thanks to a double from Jack Flower, David James and Ashley Sweet and a penalty try to keep them 11-points clear of second placed Narberth.

Narberth themselves secured a bonus-point 35-29 victory over Tondu in an entertaining fixture at Pandy Park.

The Otters and the Waterwheelers both scored four tries with Jonathan Humphries, Matthew Murphy, and Ashton Evans going over twice for Tondu while Narberth’s scorers were Steph Phillips, Dylan Richards, Rhys Lane and Morgan Griffith.

Elsewhere Bargoed beat struggling Blackwood 22-11 and Llanharan saw off a spirited Bridgend Athletic side 32-21.

Pontypool’s fixture with Cardiff Met was postponed Friday afternoon due to a waterlogged pitch.
