Mold 0 Rhuthun 47


 

With a strong wind blowing across the pitch Rhuthun started this match against local rivals Mold playing up the slope.  Mold started with intent but were held in midfield by a strong Blues defence and play moved into Mold’s 22.  After missing a penalty goal attempt the visitors kept up the pressure and after 10 minutes play scrum half Cai Edwards nipped over for a try which centre Nathan Jones converted. After the restart the Blues had to defend well against a concerted Mold attack but eventually cleared their lines and set themselves up for the 2nd try by No 8 Jordan Jones with Nathan converting.  Again the home side was contained in midfield as they tried to break through the Blues defence.  Rhuthun turned defence into attack and their 3rd try came from Nathan just before half time and the players went in with the score 21-0 to Rhuthun.  For the first 15 minutes Mold defended well against Rhuthun’s attempt to get their bonus point try.   The game was fiercely competitive and infringements on both sides led to a red card for Mold and a yellow for Rhuthun.  After 20 minutes of the 2nd half the bonus point try then came from Nathan which he converted.  The Blues went down to 14 men again with a yellow card  but kept up the scoring with a great individual try from full back Dyfan Humphreys again with Nathan converting.  The Blues were dominant now and Nathan scored his hat trick try with 5 minutes to go and then veteran back Gethin Hughes went over for the Blues 7th try converted by Nathan and the whistle blew with Rhuthun winning 47-0.
