Gowerton yr 7: 27 Bryngwynyr 7:10
Gowerton entertained Bryngwyn at Gowerton RFC and following their victory at Llangatwg confidence within the squad was high and they were on the front foot immediately with centre Charlie Williams running incisively and flanker Rhys Jones excellent in the loose.
Doing the Ayatollah: Is Rhys Flower a Cardiff City fan?
Newcombe brace gives year 7 the edge.
The hosts raced to a 4 try lead by half time with centres Matthew Newcombe (2) and Ben Petherbridge and No.8 Tim Perkins all crossing. Captain and fly half Joel Matuschke kicked one conversion.
The second half was a different story and the visitors controlled long periods of play with hooker Natasha Dow strong in the forward exchanges and full back Elliot Jenkins an elusive counter attacker. The game was back in the balance when scrum half Steffan Lee and centre Tom Williams scored tries for the visitors but with Gowerton’s Oliver Bruce running powerfully it was they who had the final word and clinched victory when prop Connor Williams plunged over from short range.
Confused: Rhys Jones “What’s that?”… It’s the ball Rhys!!!
