Crunch clash for Holy­head

Bangor Mail - - BUSINESS -

HOLY­HEAD Rugby Club will look to con­tinue their eye-catch­ing form in Divi­sion Three North when they host sec­ond­place ti­tle favourites Shot­ton in a crunch clash at Bryn-y-Mor this Satur­day.

Caer­gybi made it four straight wins last week­end with a thrilling 45-31 suc­cess at Flint.

Next comes a Shot­ton out­fit boast­ing nine vic­to­ries in 10 starts and who whipped Holy­head 51-12 on Dee­side back in Septem­ber.

The Holy Is­lan­ders will need to hit new heights to claim a fifth win in a row this Satur­day, but re­cent form sug­gests they are in the mood to do just that.

Star of the show against Flint last week­end was Jack Gib­son, who ran in a hat-trick of tries.

Owain Thomas, Aron Parry, Huw Pritchard and Ben Pritchard also crossed the line, while Rho­dri Parry landed five con­ver­sions.

Holy­head will be pleased to have se­cured the bonus point win away from home against a tough, phys­i­cal Flint side. A rare poor de­fen­sive dis­play from the vis­i­tors al­lowed Flint to go ahead nu­mer­ous times in the game, but Holy­head stuck at it to se­cure the win.

Full credit to Flint, who re­ally took the game to their op­po­nents with strong car­ries and a real de­ter­mined ef­fort.

Ben­l­lech were beaten 39-0 at home by Pwll­heli sec­onds.
