Risca 26 - LLanishen 27

Match report by Mike Allen

Mark Bale, Gareth Smith and Gareth Evans all returned after injuries. Owain Cooper came back on rota.

It was ten minutes into the game and Risca had already conceded four penalties.

Llanishen took the lead with their first success between the sticks. Risca five minutes later took the lead with a brilliant try, with LLan in possession their mid-field passing went astray and prop Mike Hutchings took the ball to run a good 60 mts to get under the posts, Biddiscombe took the extra's.

Llan took another penalty after twenty-five minutes.

Risca struck straight back with another individual  effort by full-back Mark Bale with some stepping and weaving his pace took him through Llans defence for a cracking try which was not converted.

With Risca now in command and some outstanding play by  No 7 Gareth Evans Rhys Meredith squeezes over the white wash, Biddy took the extra's, but with another penalty by Llan it  took the half-time score to Risca 19 points Llanishen 9 Points.

For the first fifteen minutes of the second half Risca took good possession again with Gareth Evans great  tackling and turning over some fantastic ball.

Llan gave away a penalty and Risca took the line-out and some great possession allowed Meredith to blow a hole through Llan's defence for his second try, Biddy took the extra's.

Another penalty by Llan got them back in the game, Risca fell away and lost all their confidence it was one way traffic with Llan scoring two penalties and two tries one of which was converted, which gave then a one point victory.

An eighty minute effort by Gareth Evans who gave it 150% made him the outstanding MAN OF THE MATCH.
