Match report by Dave Jones of the Daily Post

Fine performance matched by result as RGC overpower Beddau

RGC's 12th win in 16 outings strengthened their grip on fourth place in the Swalec Championship.

In his pre-game notes coach Josh Leach talked about having to dominate the physicality and intensity at the breakdown and his players delivered with a good 80-minute performance against a difficult side.

The key aspect of the game was the fact the visitors were given no time on the ball, and the defensive line of RGC pressured at every opportunity.

The opening 15 minutes was all RGC with the pack edging closer and closer to the whitewash. Evan Yardley almost scored before Tiaan Loots crashed over for the first try, James Lang adding the extras.

Beddau were not only a score down but a man short after a yellow card was dished out.

Lang booted over a penalty as RGC took the opportunity to get more points on the board quickly.

The Gogs were looking lively with ball in hand with the forwards making some big gains.

The visitors did not have much time to build on any phases with the work RGC were putting in at the breakdown.

Huw Worthington and Andrew Williams worked well to get the ball back after the away side made a break down the field.

The second try was one for the highlights package when Carwyn ap Myrddin made a run down the line before passing to Alex Schwarz, and the scrum-half made a quick off-load back to the winger who ran in for a superb score.

The boot of Lang made the conversion.

Loots was next to get the crowd on their feet with another dash down the wing, and the Eirias faithful were clearly delighted to have him back from injury.

Danny Cross picked up try number three just before half time and the centre converted himself.

Beddau ended the session with some good play in the RGC half and their endeavour led to a try on the whistle.

The home bonus point try came early in the second half, and it was no surprise to see Tom Hughes on the scoresheet again. The centre has been in fine scoring from since his return to the team this month.

Another player who has come back from injury is Schwarz, and after an impressive display last week at Bridgend the scrum-half carried it on at Eirias.

After Beddau had claimed a converted try, a fifth touchdown arrived for the hosts with Schwarz getting it. Cross cleared the posts for the conversion.

To have players such as Loots, Hughes, Schwarz and Andy Baston back from a spell on the sidelines will be a key factor over the next three months with 10 league games to play.

The visitors to their credit still offered plenty in attack and much adventure in spraying the ball around.

This was a positive for RGC as the defence stood tall, putting in tackle after tackle to prevent Beddau from crossing the line.

RGC: T: Loots, ap Myrddin, Cross, Hughes, Schwarz. C: Lang 2, Cross 2, P: Lang 2.
