Bangor Mail - - Fish 4 Jobs - Rugby union

LLANGEFNI started their sea­son with a 28-12 ver­dict over Caernar­fon and a hard fought bonus point win.

Cefni led 21-5 at the break but the Cofis won the ter­ri­to­rial and pos­ses­sion bat­tle in the sec­ond half.

They re­duced the deficit to 21-12 on 55 min­utes, and were press­ing for their third try in the home 22 on 75 min­utes, but Greg Hors­man timed his in­ter­cep­tion to perfection and sprinted in from 80 me­tres for the clinch­ing score.

Cefni started the liveli­est and De­clan Grif­fiths timed his pick up well and bull­dozed his way to the line for the first try which Sior Grieves im­proved for 7-0.

From the restart Cefni played them­selves into trou­ble, and from the ensuing scrum Cofi num­ber eight Mac Jones picked up and beat all would-be tack­lers on a 40 me­tre run to the line.

Cefni ex­tended their lead when Grieves timed his pass per­fectly to sec­ond row Alun Roberts, who found him­self in acres of space and proved un­stop­pable from 20 me­tres.

Hors­man added ex­tras for 14-5.

An­other Grieves kick al­lowed Ioan Jones to re­trieve pos­ses­sion with An­drews in sup­port. When the ball was moved left, Hors­man made ground into the 22. From the ensuing maul, Dion Oliver did bril­liantly to cross from close range. Hors­man’s kick made it 21-5.

Caernar­fon dom­i­nated the sec­ond half with their pivot, Aled Jones kick­ing long and con­trol­ling the game very well and he crossed when Cefni ran out of tack­lers.

Jones con­verted to make it 21-12 be­fore Hors­man’s dra­matic in­ter­cep­tion. the
