Cynon Valley - - RUGBYUNION -

PREMIER­SHIP BED­WAS .................. 31 CARDIFF ................. 27

A LATE Mike Cal­low try sealed a dra­matic vic­tory for Bed­was against Cardiff in the Prin­ci­pal­ity Premier­ship at the Bridge Field.

The hosts opened the scor­ing as Matthew John forced his way over in the cor­ner and St­ef­fan Jones added the ex­tras.

Cardiff hit back with a Gareth Thomp­son penalty but Bed­was re­sponded in­stantly through an An­drew Waite try.

Cardiff winger Lly­warch ap Myrd­din then col­lected a pass fol­low­ing a Dan Fish break and Thomp­son kicked the con­ver­sion to close the deficit to just the two points shortly be­fore half time.

John notched his sec­ond, and Bed­was’ third, try of the af­ter­noon just shy of the hour mark and Jones added the con­ver­sion.

Blue and Blacks scrum-half Geraint Watkin then crossed for a try with Thomp­son’s con­ver­sion clos­ing the deficit back to two points once again be­fore great play from Bed­was skip­per Alun Rees saw him touch down and earn the bonus point for the hosts, Jones suc­cess­fully con­verted.

Thomp­son notched a penalty be­fore cross­ing for a try, which he con­verted, to put Cardiff ahead but Bed­was heads didn’t drop and Cal­low broke through some poor tack­les to crash over for an un­con­verted try, which se­cured a dra­matic late vic­tory.
