Venue Cefn Cribbwr RFC
The Heart of Wales travelled to Cefn Cribbwr RFC on Sunday to play Bridgend District. HOW started the stronger and after some good forward surges, they were awarded a lineout close to the Bridgend line. An excellent catch and drive resulted in Will Adams ( Builth Wells) powering over in the corner. The HOW forwards were on fine form and further pressure resulted in Captain Ellis Evans ( Merthyr ) barging over for a fine try. 10 -0. The backs started to come in to the game and after some good handling offloaded to storming prop Zack Pearce ( Treharris) to score, which was converted by Jack Marsh ( Merthyr).
Half Time: Bridgend 0 - 17 Heart of Wales.
The second half opened up with Bridgend putting some serious pressure on the HOW line but fine defensive work from Sam Evans ( Abercynon) and Kieran Decan (Brecon) resulted in Jack Williams ( Gwynhyfed) speeding away to score, converted by Nathan Jones ( Merthyr). A further try by Ellis Evans and a penalty by Jones racked the score to 32 - 0. The final try was scored by Ryan Cusack ( Abercynon) after some excellent approach work from the backs.
