The second half saw Pontypool attempt to run the ball at the vale but resolute tackling by Whittingham , Morgan and Ed Howley denied them time and time again. Vale playing a short ball after being awarded a penalty brought full back Connely into line and his weaving run back inside and well floated pass to collier allowed the back row forward to put Harrison over for his second try.
Vale were now playing with confidence and excellent handling by their backs saw Connelly again join the line this time Morgan finishing the move , Whittingham converting.
An enterprising run from Gloaskin to deep into Vales half needed a superb tackle by Whittingham to prevent Poaler scoring.
Vale responded with Liam Driscoll finishing off another sniping run by Owain Lord. Whittingham narrowly missing the conversion.
