EBBW VALE ................. 43 SWANSEA ...................... 3

GREG Woods praised Ebbw Vale’s de­fence as the Steel­men thrashed Swansea at Eu­gene Cross Park.

Ebbw had only con­ceded 15 points in their pre­vi­ous three games and the only score the visi­tors man­aged were from a Luke Grif­fiths penalty, but the hosts were al­ready way out in front by then.

Lewis Den­nett kicked three penal­ties in­side the open­ing 10 min­utes and added the con­ver­sions to Dan Hay­mond’s two tries be­fore Grif­fiths struck.

Ebbw con­tin­ued to at­tack and tries from Joe Franchi, Toby Fricker and Jon Davies earned them a bonus point.

“I thought we were very dom­i­nant and con­tin­ued where we left off in mid­week dur­ing the cup match against Bargoed,” said Woods.

“Our de­fence was re­ally hard to break down and I thought we added that lit­tle bit ex­tra in at­tack so in­stead of win­ning by 20 points with kicks, we won by 40 points thanks to some ex­cel­lent tries.

Ebbw Vale: Tries: D Hay­mond (2), J Franchi, T Fricker, J Davies; Cons: L Den­nett (3); Pens: L Den­nett (4).
