2nd XV Match Report

Llandudno 2nds  14       Dinbych 2nds  31
22nd October 2011

With injuries from last week Dinbych travelled to Llandudno with a new back line-up only to have further disappointment for the forwards on arrival to find that it was to be uncontested scrums as Llandudno 1sts had no front row. Dinbych attacked Llandudno from the kick off and after only 10  minutes play Dave Lowe crossed over for the first try of the afternoon. From the restart Dinbych secured the ball which was fed through the backs with a clearance kick from outside their 22 with winger Gavin O’Loughlin chasing the ball down beating their winger to boot the ball forward and outpace the Llandudno fullback to secure the try converted by Dave Perkins. Despite their being no action for the pack with no scrummaging there was some good handling by No 8 Kimi Evans linking up with Scrum half Bryn Rowlands to create some exciting play with great surging runs by inside centre Alan Waterfield only to  have a  try disallowed for double movement. After 30 minutes Llandudno managed to break through some solid defending by Dinbych to get their  first points on the board with a converted try. Dinbych forwards continued to pressurise Llandudno winning good ball at the ruck and with both jumpers winning good ball in the line-out just before half time with good ball from set play fed out through the backs for Dave Perkins to run in the 3rd try of the afternoon with the conversion not given by the referee as the Llandudno linesman forgot to put his hand up.  At the interval Dinbych were leading by 17 points to 7.

Replacement forward Gareth Price carried some good ball to break through Llandudno’s defence and with Dinbych’s continued pressure inside centre Alan Waterfield was rewarded with a well deserved try. On the wrong side of  decisions by the referee Dinbych suffered a number of penalties at the breakdown with hooker Roger Clayton getting penalised unfairly forcing Dinbych to defend on their own line keeping Llandudno at bay.  Eventually Llandudno managed to find a hole in the defence  but knocked  forward when grounding the ball only for the ref to award the converted try. Dinbych were quick to reply with another superb run from centre Alan Waterfield to cross over for his second of the afternoon converted by Perkins. Denbigh were on the attack again when the ball was collected by outside centre Ben Davenport to execute a perfect drop kick from outside Llanudno’s 22 only to be disallowed by the ref as he didn’t see it go over which summed the afternoon for Dinbych but were happy with their bonus point win
