With the end of the season in sight and 4 more matches to play this was a must win game for both sides, but the young guns of Pentyrch enabled us to see a first half feast of running nonstop rugby with 4 tries all scored by the youngest players on the field. The first one by Ben Jones was 4 mins into the match and the visitors who apart from the kickoff hardly touched the ball as the Tyrchs ran the ball from everywhere on the park and he ran in to touch down after quick piece of work by Huw Rees at a penalty and this was converted by outside half Tom James from far out. This encouraged the team to keep playing high tempo rugby with a further three tries coming from Nathan Williams Ethan William & Dylan Palmer, one of which was converted by Tom James. Having the bonus point in the pocket we let the visitors in our half for the last 5 mins and they scored out wide in time added on making the score at halftime 24-5.
The second half started much the same as the first with the young guns running at the opposition every time the ball came their way with the result of Tom James going over in the corner after some great running rugby as the ball was passed between the backs and forwards all afternoon with the replacements (for injuries) on we still carried on the attacks at every movement. The match was well handled by referee Mr David Swain who had to dismiss one of the opposition for some unsavoury words direct towards a Pentyrch player and himself, so Treherbert played the last 15 mins with 14 men and they went on to exert a lot of pressure on the youngsters with the result of a converted try to make the final score 29-12
Next week the Tyrch's are home again for the visit of Fairwater who are like ourselves will be looking to win to keep the thought of relegation this season an afterthought.
The youth match against Llanishen was cancelled because of the wet conditions at 11.30 on first inspection.
