Gogs back to win­ning ways at Bar­goed

Caernarfon Herald - - SPORT -

Pic­ture: STEVE LEWIS RGC re­turned to win­ning ways at Parc Eirias last Satur­day with a 40-7 thrash­ing of Bar­goed.

A con­vinc­ing Premier­ship vic­tory in Col­wyn Bay was a wel­come re­sult for the Gogs, who had lost their pre­vi­ous two league en­coun­ters.

The hosts flew out the blocks and it took just two min­utes to score when Joe Simp­son crashed over the line. Billy McBryde hit the con­ver­sion.

RGC were mov­ing the ball wide with some pace, which was caus­ing the vis­i­tors prob­lems as the pace they played at was scin­til­lat­ing at times.

Try num­ber two came when Tom Hughes col­lected a kick ahead and raced through to touch down. The pack were look­ing solid against a Bar­goed side who had dom­i­nated Aber­avon the pre­vi­ous week.

The RGC for­wards were driv­ing them back time and time again.

So it was no sur­prise when Sam Wain­wright grabbed try num­ber three.

Tom Hughes then opened up the de­fence with a dy­namic break ghost­ing past the tack­les, but his pass failed to find the hands of Danny Cross.

Efan Jones was hav­ing an im­pres­sive half at scrumhalf, with some quick de­liv­ery to the back line.

The bonus point was clinched just be­fore half time when the ref­eree gave the penalty try after the maul was brought down.

Four min­utes after the break, Bryn Jones got over the line after some good phase play. McBryde added the ex­tras. Credit to Bar­goed, who had a good spell with ball in hand, and tested the RGC de­fence.

The home team worked well around the break­down, and nul­li­fied much of the at­tack.

The vis­i­tors did get the con­so­la­tion score when Dar­ren Humphries dabbed down five min­utes from time. Calum Jones fired the con­ver­sion.

RGC reached the 40-point mark when re­place­ment Aron Evans broke the tack­les be­fore Harri Evans fin­ished with a try un­der the posts. McBryde kicked the con­ver­sion.
