Risca Ath 56 - Hartridge 2nds 8

Match report by Clive James:

With the 1st.XV.not playing after being beaten in the first round of the Plate, it was the Athletic who were the centre of attention as they played a friendly against Hartridge 2nds.after original opponents St.Josephs pulled out of the fixture.

The team treated the good crowd to a 56pts.-8 victory with some good passages of play throughout the afternoon. It proved that with the sides inclusion in the newly formed Conference has benefitted the club with more of the Athletic players buying into what the coaches want from them and understanding the structures that have been put in place.

 The stand out tries of the game came from scrum half Liam Thomas who dummied from a scrum on the halfway line and touched down under the posts,outside half Lewis Millard who touched down after turning the defenders inside out with a mazy run and the returning centre Rhys James who looked up noticed the space behind the defence,kicked on followed up and gathered the ball to score.

A good all round performance that augurs well for the forthcoming games in the Conference.

To round off a perfect afternoon the Youth travelled to Abercwmboi and won 17pts.- 0.

Next saturday Abertillery/Blaenau Gwent  are the visitors against the 1st.XV and Youth while the Athletics next Conference game is against Rhiwbina at home.
