With its British & Irish Cup campaign now over, Pontypridd RFC has time to re-group and re-focus, with two huge games still to be played to the end of the season, with the domestic double at stake.
The disappointment of losing the BIC semi final tie against Bristol at Sardis Road was offset by the day’s successes off the field. Ponty experienced by far their biggest crowd for over seven years, with well over 5,000 passionate rugby supporters enjoying a fast and furious encounter in perfect weather conditions.
The whole community had pulled together behind Pontypridd RFC in its push for glory, and that will be something that the club will be keen to carry on into the next games and into its future campaigns.
A strong Bristol representation had turned up to back their team at Sardis, and the feedback from the visiting contingent has been most positive, with many messages of thanks for the great welcome on offer and the great atmosphere generated at the 'House of Pain'.
Easter Saturday will live long in the collective memory of Ponty RFC as a day when the club did itself proud and projected a very positive image of the semi-professional game in Wales both on and off the field. From that experience the club can now move, hopefully to conclude a very successful season on the domestic front.
