Wilson double helps Dinbych to Semi Final spot

For the second time in as many weeks, Caeau Les Phillips welcomed local rivals Rhyl RFC. A place in the Semi Finals of the North Wales Intermediate Cup on the line this time.

Although Rhyl were much more competitive than in their league visit to Caeau Les Phillips the previous week, they were still unable to prevent Dinbych making further progress in their defence of the Conwy Land Rover North Wales Intermediate Cup.

Rhyl were dealt a blow in the opening minutes when they lost Centre Richard Williams who suffered a leg injury in a tackle but this failed to damp their enthusiasm as they looked to attack at every opportunity, defended strongly and competed fiercely in the breakdown area. Dinbych however were more measured in their play and used their possession more effectively as they scored all their three first half tries from line outs deep in the Rhyl 22. The first was scored by Flanker Tom Eden who went over for an unconverted try capitalising on driving play by the forwards after a catch by skipper Narmer EL Lamie. Outside Half Garin Roberts was next to benefit from a similar build up as he went over for a try converted by Full Back Gruff Roberts after Scrum Half Iwan Johnson had made the initial inroads into the defence. Rhyl then reduced the arrears with a penalty by Jason Blackmore only for Dinbych to pull away again with their third try from a short range line out with debutant Winger Andrew Wilson taking advantage of a forward drive after a Gareth Beach catch. A conversion by Gruff Roberts extended Dinbych's lead at the interval to 19 points to 3.

Dinbych extended their lead in the second half with a try by Hooker Geraint Madoc-Jones who broke through the defence from short range after the ball was recycled from an attack halted near the corner. Gruff Roberts added the conversion and then played a major part in the next score from an attack initiated near half way with Centres Matt Hulse and Tom Seddon releasing Gruff on a long touch line run. When he was tackled in the corner just short of the line by the covering defence Andrew Wilson was up in support to cross for his second try which Roberts then converted. Rhyl reduced the deficit when they capitalised on possession from a short range line out to score a try by Che Hudson converted by Blackmore. This failed to loosen Dinbych's grip on the game as Lock John Winning went over for a try following an initial surge down the touchline by his second row partner Gareth Beach. Dinbych's final try came from a turn over on half way with replacement Winger Ben Reed on his debut instrumental in feeding Matt Hulse who then set Man of the Match Gruff Roberts on a touch line run to outflank the covering defence and score an unconverted try in the corner to put Dinbych 45 points to 10 ahead.

Rhyl then got some reward for their enthusiastic and fiercely competitive effort throughout the match with two late converted tries to give the final score a more realistic look.
