Gogs back to winning ways at Bargoed
Picture: STEVE LEWIS RGC returned to winning ways at Parc Eirias last Saturday with a 40-7 thrashing of Bargoed.
A convincing Premiership victory in Colwyn Bay was a welcome result for the Gogs, who had lost their previous two league encounters.
The hosts flew out the blocks and it took just two minutes to score when Joe Simpson crashed over the line. Billy McBryde hit the conversion.
RGC were moving the ball wide with some pace, which was causing the visitors problems as the pace they played at was scintillating at times.
Try number two came when Tom Hughes collected a kick ahead and raced through to touch down. The pack were looking solid against a Bargoed side who had dominated Aberavon the previous week.
The RGC forwards were driving them back time and time again.
So it was no surprise when Sam Wainwright grabbed try number three.
Tom Hughes then opened up the defence with a dynamic break ghosting past the tackles, but his pass failed to find the hands of Danny Cross.
Efan Jones was having an impressive half at scrumhalf, with some quick delivery to the back line.
The bonus point was clinched just before half time when the referee gave the penalty try after the maul was brought down.
Four minutes after the break, Bryn Jones got over the line after some good phase play. McBryde added the extras. Credit to Bargoed, who had a good spell with ball in hand, and tested the RGC defence.
The home team worked well around the breakdown, and nullified much of the attack.
The visitors did get the consolation score when Darren Humphries dabbed down five minutes from time. Calum Jones fired the conversion.
RGC reached the 40-point mark when replacement Aron Evans broke the tackles before Harri Evans finished with a try under the posts. McBryde kicked the conversion.
