Match report - Mike Allen

Straight from the kick-off Blaenavon put Risca under pressure with a dropped ball under their own posts. From the scrum the Avons drove over for an unconverted try.Risca replied with some excellent play with full back Mark Bale running out of defence and some inter passing with Tom Crandon put Mark Bale over in the corner for an unconverted try. Just after twenty-five minutes Todd James broke away to gain excellent ground, the tackle on James was illegal (Gaining a penalty) for Risca which was converted by Owain Biddiscombe.

With the half time score 8 Points to 5 Points with a slender lead to Risca.

After the break it was all Blaenavon the Risca pack were totally blown away and the Avon dominated scrum and line-out to score three more tries and one conversion.

The small amount of possession that Risca did have was lost or kicked away and gifted back to Blaenavon.

Risca were left camping on their own line for the last ten minutes with some excellent defence keeping the home side from scoring anymore points.

Gareth Evans and Henry Palmer were the outstanding men in that defence.
