Match report by Mike Allen

Risca started this game hoping to score their first double of the season, after their 33 point to 20 point victory last September.

Risca were out-played in all departments, Nelson took Risca's defence apart after only two minutes, they were over the line with a well taken try which was converted, Risca replied with two penalties by Biddiscombe on 7 minutes and 12 minutes.Nelson replied with another try.

Risca's ten minutes of pressure paid off when Rhys James made a cracking break to put Leighton Burrows in for Risca's only try which was not converted.

Nelson scored one more try and a penalty just before the interval.

With Biddy getting one more penalty after Callum Anderson made some storming runs but could not get over the whites wash

Half-time Risca 14 points Nelson 20 points.

Risca were non existent in the second half, Nelson closed the game down and their outside half just pegged the ball into the corners, and scoring two more unconverted tries for a five try bonus point victory.

 Next Saturday Risca travel to Glamorgan Wanders.
