As the game moved into the second half Vale were at their rampant best, their marauding forwards and electric backs were combining time and time again to rip Newport Schools to shreds. Rhys Gentles crossed twice in the second half to round off. The final score was a richly deserved victory by 7 tries to 2.
The significance of winning this national trophy for the second time in two years should not be underestimated; the Vale had never won this trophy until last year, so to win it and retain it is beyond everyone's wildest dreams.
The A team have enjoyed a fantastic season, losing only the first game and winning the next 16.
Coach Duncan Mottram said, "We're absolutely over the moon; this is just reward for the hard work put in by both the players and coaching staff over the season."
