Dinbych weather late come back to claim vital win

4th placed Wrexham RFC travelled to Caeau Les Phillips hoping to ruin the home side's unbeaten start to the season.

After three high scoring victories Dinbych were given a reality check by a well drilled Wrexham side who matched them try for try and gained a losing bonus point for their efforts. Dinbych had the larger share of both territory and possession and had opportunities to have added to their tally but were frustrated by a tight Wrexham defence. On the other hand Wrexham took their fewer chances well and were ahead at the interval by 12 points to 10 having outscored the hosts in tries.
Dinbych had the better of the opening exchanges attacking deep into the Wrexham 22 but were held out by a stubborn Wrexham defence. It was against the run of play in the ninth minute that the visitors opened the scoring from a scrum just inside their half when Full Back James Price kicked ahead deep into the Dinbych 22 and re-gathered the bouncing ball to cross for a try which he converted himself. This stung Dinbych into renewed action sparked by probing runs by Outside Half Dan O'Sullivan and they equalised after a quarter of an hour when they counter-attacked from half way. Full Back Gruff Roberts came into the line with a searing outside break to release Centre Tom Seddon to go over for a try under the posts converted by Dan O'Sullivan. Both sides then cancelled each other out before Wrexham went ahead once more on the half hour mark. The visitors took play into the corner and from the resulting short range line out generated a driving maul from which Prop James Weston forced his way over for an unconverted try. Despite Dinbych's increasingly intense attacking efforts they were only able to reduce the deficit with a Dan O'Sullivan penalty with the last kick of the first half.

Trailing by 12 points to 10 at the interval Dinbych went into the lead for the first time just eight minutes into the second half when Right Wing Aidyn Jones went over in the corner for an unconverted try following an attack from a scrum in midfield inside the Wrexham 22. Dinbych went further ahead ten minutes later as they pressurised Wrexham at a number of scrums in the corner just short of the line. After conceding a number of penalties at reset scrums Wrexham thought they had weathered the storm as they drove the Dinbych scrum back. Fortunately No.8 Liam Allsup-Jones rescued the situation as he recycled possession from which Centre Owain Davies took a crash ball to burst through and score under the posts leaving an easy conversion for Dan O'Sullivan. Dinbych continued to threaten through their dangerous backs but again failed to breach the solid Wrexham defence. The visitors then had a sting in their tail as they counter- attacked from near half way with Right Wing Jack Ratcliff finishing the move going over in the corner then rounding to touch down under the posts for a converted try. Unfortunately for Wrexham with only minutes remaining Dinbych retained possession to shut out the visitors with only the losing bonus point to show for their efforts in a highly competitive encounter.
