Match Report

Ebbw Vale SWALEC CUP win !

Ebbw Vale RFC v LLanelli RFC SWALEC Cup @ Tredegar Park.

The twice postponed match at Eugene Cross Park was eventually switched to  the immaculate Tredegar Park and to the relief of everyone the game kicked off to ease the fixture backlog.

It was very evident from the first half that both sides had been inactive and in a disappointing half only a couple of penalties from Dan Newton seperated the sides.

Llanelli's halftime talk worked wonders as they flew out of the blocks with 3 tries within 10 minutes from wings Jason Howells and Dale Ford (2), one of which Dan Newton converted.

Unfortunately after their 'purple patch' Llanelli's play tended to be a touch to loose and predictable. This allowed Ebbw crumbs of hope which eventually paid off with an interception pass from White to Wakely allowing the centre to cross the Llanelli try line. Replacement Andrew Williams converted.

Llanelli maintained their 100% record  with their 7th win against the Vale in the history of the Cup and with a massive end of season fixture list approaching the young talented team know their consistency and accuracy will be a great test and challenge for their evolving development.
