Cymoedd march on to fifth consecutive league win
Coleg y Cymoedd remain top of the WRU Schools and Colleges League as the only team with a 100% record intact.
Cymoedd have now played five and won five following another impressive victory on Wednesday 11th October, this time by 43pts to 17 against Neath Port Talbot at Sardis Road. A points difference of 136 in their favour from the five competitive fixtures played is a reflection of the form shown by Coleg y Cymoedd.
Cian Lewis-Hughes was the star of the show for Cymoedd as the second row grabbed two of his side’s seven tries in the win over Neath Port Talbot. Back row man Lloyd Gregory also scored twice and outside half Rhys Davies chipped in with four conversions.
The home side got off to a flying start with Gregory getting his first score after only four minutes. NPTC stayed in touch in the opening twenty minutes, trailing only 12-10 thanks to a Tiann Thomas-Wheeler penalty and conversion of Dewi Cross’ try.
But by the break Cymoedd had opened up a 26-10 lead as centre Joe Vickers, hooker Ieuan Morris and Lewis-Jones breached the visitors’ line. Gregory’s second try three minutes after the break extended the lead before Thomas-Wheeler converted his own try to cut the gap to 14 points.
But there was no holding the unbeaten league leaders as they made it five straight wins with further scores from Lewis-Hughes and replacement prop Matthew Iles.
The record of five consecutive victories will be put to the test in the next round of league matches as Cymoedd travel to face reigning champions Coleg Sir Gar on Tuesday 24th October.
