Dinbych hit 90 against Steel

Caeau Les Phillips hosted Shotton RFC on a fine evening for both side's to display their attacking prowess.

Dinbych brought their home season to an end in spectacular style scoring fourteen tries in a resounding victory over a Shotton Steel side who themselves picked up a bonus point by scoring six tries. Yet this was no end of season barbarian style throw about with both sides working hard to create scoring chances with Dinbych's dangerous backs taking the honours with their elusive running and ability to strike from distance. The first half was evenly fought with Dinbych just edging it to lead by thirty six points to twenty six points at the interval but they pulled away in the second half in which they added eight further tries. Centre Owain Davies led the way scoring six tries with outside half Dan O'Sullivan, wing Kieran Bonar and full back Gruff Roberts each scoring a brace of tries and with scrum half Jamie Winning and centre Matt Hulse also crossing. Dan O'Sullivan and Gruff Roberts each kicked five conversions to add to their try scoring exploits.
​Although Dinbych got off to a flying start with a couple of unconverted tries by Owain Davies showing his strength as he finished off attacks from distance they were pegged back by Shotton when lock Rob Myddleton went over for a try following a maul in front of the posts leaving an easy conversion for centre Steve Elson. Dinbych then increased their lead with a brace of tries by Dan O'Sullivan both of which he converted, the first from a maul 15 metres out and the second when he took advantage of a fumble of a relieving kick near half way which he hacked on and gathered to beat desperate Shotton defenders to the line. Shotton again responded following the restart kick taking play deep into the Dinbych 22 on the left and then running a tap penalty with right wing Gavin Roper winning the race to touch down a grubber kick to the corner for an unconverted try. The visitors closed the gap to one score when centre Joe Duncan went over for a try from a short range maul with Elson again adding the conversion points. Dinbych then went further ahead when Owain Davies went over in the corner for his hat trick try after left wing Sion Rowlands had been tackled just short of the line. Shotton replied when outside half Matie Condon went over to touch down under the posts from a tap penalty inside the Dinbych 22 leaving Elson another easy conversion. Just before the interval Dinbych eased ahead further after a good attack when Owain Davies crossed following a ruck in front of the posts with Dan O'Sullivan adding the conversion points.
​Leading by ten points at the interval Dinbych soon increased their lead when No.8 Liam Allsup-Jones broke through several tackles from a quickly taken tap penalty on half way which the supporting Jamie Winning finished off in typical fashion with an elusive run to score wide out for a try converted with an excellent kick by Dan O'Sullivan. Gruff Roberts then scored an outstanding solo try breaking from inside the Dinbych 22 and evading numerous would be tacklers by well balanced running. Centre Matt Hulse then finished off a good combined attack forcing his way over for a try converted by Dan O'Sullivan. Shotton were far from finished and after a period of pressure close to the Dinbych line prop Jason Edwards forced his way over in the corner for an unconverted try. Dinbych were soon back on the attack and Owain Davies took advantage of good handling from a line out 22 metres out to outflank the Shotton defence for a try converted by Gruff Roberts. Gruff Roberts then score a second spectacular solo try from a scrum on halfway and then added the conversion points. Kieran Bonar then took advantage of skipper David Haydock stealing possession on halfway to race down the touchline to score in the corner for a try converted with an excellent kick by Gruff Roberts. Owain Davies then crossed for his sixth try taking advantage of good handling in midfield after a line out on halfway. Gruff Roberts again converted before Dinbych completed their scoring with another outstanding solo effort by Kieran Bonar who caught a chip ahead in full stride just inside the Shotton half to streak over for a try under the posts converted again by Gruff Roberts. Shotton showed their character as they continued to compete in all phases and they brought the match to a close with an unconverted try near the corner following a short range forward drive.
