Glynneath v Newbridge


A tough afternoon for the side from Abernant Park.Glynneath dominated the early exchanges,they needed a score to settle the nerves,the pressure they put on the away side in this period they deserved a score,but credit must go to Newbridge who defended for their lives to keep the home side out. 

Newbridge's first attack resulted in a try in the top left hand corner the forwards won the ball on the Glynneath 22,excellent handling from their quick and slick backline resulted in the first try converted Glynneath 0 Newbridge 7.

From the kick off Newbridge reclaimed the ball,making their way to the Glynneath line and after a number of phases,a break in mid field Newbridge got behind the Glynneath defence and with a further pass Newbridge were over again for their second try converted Glynneath 0 Newbridge 14

Really tough on the home side after their early dominance but this league is unforgiving you must take your chances when they come,a further score just on the stroke of half time a penalty in front of the posts for Newbridge.

Half Time Glynneath 0 Newbridge 17

The second half started very much the same as the first,but this time the pressure resulted in points Glynneath score in the corner a try for wing Rhys Costain not converted.Glynneath 5 Newbridge 17.

From the restart Glynneath are awarded a penalty 35m out in front of the posts Dalton Brown is successful with the kick Glynneath 8 Newbridge 17

Its all Glynneath in the second half but Newbridge are defending well and its becoming very frustrating for the home side as they try and get over that line for the second time.

Time is running but with 10 mins left Rhys Costain scores his second try,slick handling from the backline,ball reaches Dylan Francis feeds Rhys who dives in the corner convertion missed Glynneath 13 Newbridge 17

Back come Glynneath time has beaten us final score Glynnaeth 13 Newbridge 17
