2nd XV Match Report

Mold Seconds 76 points   Dinbych Seconds  10 points
10th September 2011

                After their convincing victory over Colwyn Bay the previous week it was disappointing that Dinbych travelled to Mold with depleted numbers after  late drop outs and were forced to start the game against one of the strongest teams in the division with only fourteen men . They then suffered  injuries during the match reducing them to only thirteen  before the second half when hooker Ivor Williams was forced to retire. They nevertheless played with great spirit throughout  but could not stop Mold making full use of their superior numbers to create overlaps  in the backs and pile up the score.

                The Dinbych  forwards started well and soon got on top in the scrums and it took Mold  more than ten minutes before they could make their numerical advantage tell  when their backs broke through for their first converted  try. The Dinbych pack continued to dominate Mold up front and were rewarded  when flanker Dave Roberts broke through from  near halfway  before offloading in a tackle inside the 22 for Peter Shoesmith  to cross for his first try in senior rugby. Mold however used their extra man to good effect and by half time had built up a twenty five points to five lead.

                Despite having to start the second half with thirteen  the  Dinbych forwards continued to dominate up front but as soon as Mold gained possession they used their advantage in the backs to create the overlaps and build up the score. Dinbych did not go down without a fight  and got some reward for their efforts  ten minutes from the end when Matt Arnold picked up at the base of a scrum on half way  to smash his way through the Mold backs before offloading to  the supporting Dave Roberts on the 22 to cross for an unconverted try.   

Next Saturday  Dinbych are away at Colwyn Bay.
