Your News Ponty Youth achieve a season's double over Llanishen

Pontypridd Youth secured second win of the season over Llanishen

Youth on Friday 14th November, by a margin of 50pts to 0.

The two teams had met back in October in the National Youth Cup,

with Ponty then securing a home win by 22pts to 0. On this occasion

a friendly fixture was played at the Cilfynydd RFC ground.

Ponty took some time to settle in to their game and were often over

eager in defence, conceding too many penalties for offside. 

However it was not long before they found their rhythm

with some swift handling across the back line to send 

Brandon Evans racing down the touch line before an inside pass put

the supporting Max Hendy over for a try. The second touchdown soon

followed with the Ponty forwards sucking in their opponents'

which was quickly taken, followed by a drive to the opposition

line, the ball recycled allowing Greg Mogford to pick up and dive

With the game broken up, some neat interplay by Pontypridd sent

Dewi Morris crashing over for another try. Ponty were now

dominating territory and possession, and after maintaining the ball

for multiple phases Brandon Evans raced clear and found Chris John

up in support to cross for his first try of the season, which was

again converted by Byard. The final play of the game culminated

with flanker Brendan Payne in space out wide to cross for a try

which extended the final scoreline to 50pts to 0 in Ponty's
