Win On The Road

It was very much a case of venturing into the unknown for the RGC Senior side as they paid their first ever visit to Newcastle Emlyn RFC on Saturday. and in a game played on a beautiful autumn afternoon it was they who were able to return to North Wales having achieved  a bonus point victory.
Although it was the home side who opened the scoring with a long range penalty following a scrum infringement it was RGC who crossed the whitewash first when Carwyn Ap Myrddin finished off a slick handling move which included a sublime pass from veteran second-row Bryn Williams. RGC's second try came shortly afterwards when Man of the Match Rhun Williams was quickest to react to a sublime kick from James Lang to touch down in the corner. 
Although Newcastle Emlyn narrowed the gap with their second penalty it wasn't long before RGC scored their third try, this time from livewire 17 year old scrum=half Efan Jones who scored his first senior try when he darted over from close-range. The 4th and bonus point try was scored by centre Tom Hughes who showed both great speed and footwork to touch down behind the posts. Fly-half James Lang adding the extras.
Although Newcastle Emlyn scored their 3rd Penalty on the stroke of half-time , it was RGC who led at the interval by 25 points to 9. The second half began in much the same way as the first with Full-back Williams making a scorching break from inside his own half before being felled just short of the try-line. However to their credit the home side from that point came more and more into the game and were rewarded for their efforts with a try of their own from a driving maul . Something that they looked like repeating shortly afterwards. However sterling defence led by the RGC backrow of Huw Worthington,Will Bryan and Andrew Williams turned the ball over and from that point on the home side never looked like scoring again. Any nerves being experienced by the visiting supporters were calmed by Lang slotting over a penalty and RGC were perhaps a little unfortunate not to score again when a Will Bryan effort was ruled out by the referee for off=side.
Speaking after the game, RGC Head Coach Josh Leach commented. ' It was very much a curates egg of a performance with a lot of good stuff mixed together with some areas that need improvement. However overall I was delighted. The backs looked dangerous every time they had the ball and it was great to see Tom Hughes score his first try since his return from injury. HUw Worthington was again outstanding in breaking the gain line almost every time he had the ball and I thought Bryn Williams had his best game of the season thus far. WE have very much focused on improving our away performances and this afternoon showed that this focus is hopefully paying dividends.'
