Cowbridge overcome Old Penarthians

There was a cover of dew over the recently trimmed grass in the morning but that dried out by kick off and the pitch looked in good nick for the arrival of Old Penarthians last Saturday.The game was full of endeavour but never hit the high spots with Cowbridge winning 10-6.

Cowbridge broke the deadlock with a charge down by outside half Alex Guard that he then scooped up to score which full back Ben Wright converted. Wright followed  that up with another penalty. Old Pens put over two of their own. There was a chance for centre Tom James in the first half who chased up a kick ahead ,  the full back juggled with it but it bounced out of his hands , James snatched it and then tried to ground the ball but was held up by two defenders .

Both teams tried hard to score, the referee wasn't really allowing any continuity and the home team suffered. In the second half a line take and drive over the Old Pens line was adjudged not to have been grounded  . The game reminded nervy to the end with only a 4 point margin but it was another win.


Final score 10-6.



Being current leaders of the division Cowbridge can expect other teams to up their game, equally they can't take a win for granted. On the plus side Alex Guard got more game time after his injury and Sam Richards went well at No 8 in the absence of injured Dan Holder. Jack Anderson took a knock and may have to rest

This Saturday the 1st XV are away at Canton , the Youth at home to Merthyr . On 11th both teams are in action before the Australia game at 17:15.The 1sts are at home against Treherbert and the Youth away at Cardiff Uni..We should know more of the kick off times next week.

Finally another reminder of the Annual Bonfire Night at the Club on this Sunday 5th November with a start time of 6pm.
