DOWLAIS ..................... 25 YNYSYBWL .................. 26

THE be­gin­ning of Dowlais’ new sea­son ended un­for­tu­nately in a nar­row de­feat at the hands of Ynysybwl thanks to a last-minute try that sealed their de­feat by one point, end­ing with a score of 26-25 to Ynysybwl.

Dowlais’ three tries were scored by sec­ond row John Davies, No 8 Daniel Snape and Lloyd Hynes, with two be­ing con­verted by Steve James, who also kicked two penal­ties.

Ynysybwl scored four tries with three con­ver­sions.

Al­though they were on top for the ma­jor­ity of the game, Dowlais’ per­sist­ing prob­lem of giv­ing away too many penal­ties ul­ti­mately led to the de­feat, cul­mi­nat­ing in two yel­low cards in the fi­nal min­utes to John Davies and Mar­cus Clyne.

Ig­nor­ing the penal­ties, Dowlais sim­ply missed too many op­por­tu­ni­ties. Dowlais can at least leave their first game with a los­ing bonus point to their name.
