Ystrad Rhondda complete double over rivals

Cole Morgan of Ystrad Rhondda.

Ystrad Rhondda completed a notable double over Glamorgan Wanderers in Group 2 of the WRU Championship Cup as they followed up their 28-20 away win with a comprehensive 45-17 triumph at home.

That made it three successive bonus-point wins to put them four points clear of Cardiff Met at the top of the table and on course for a knock-out place later in the season. They host Beddau this weekend and then go to Cardiff Met the week after t determine who goes through. 

They scored seven tries despite playing for an hour with only 14 men after hooker Liam Wiggins was sent-off for making contact with the head of a Wanderers player with his forearm as he drove into contact with the ball. 

The Wanderers were still hanging on at half-time, when they only trailed 17-10 and managed to score three tries themselves. Full back Liam Greening scored twice for the home side and further tries came from Ethan Frackell, Corbin Evans, Jarrad Llewellyn, David Webb and Sion Summers with Rhys Truelove converting five of them. 

There were only two games in the WRU Championship Cup and Narberth’s 25-16 home win over Trebanos means they only need to get a point in the re-match this weekend to ensure winning Group 4. The Otters made it three out of three as they converted a two point interval lead into a comfortable enough triumph in the end. 

Bargoed will be looking to make a clean sweep of Group 1 if they can win at Bedwas on Saturday. The Gwent side have won all three games to date, but will be aware that they had to fight hard to overcome Bedwas 13-7 at home in their opening game. 

After back-to-back defeats to table-topping Maesteg Quins, Neath will be hoping to complete their Group 3 campaign with a win at home against Tata Steel. Check out all the WRU Championship Cup fixtures, results and tables HERE
