Promotion secured in eight try victory

On a glorious afternoon at Bryn Estyn Road, Dinbych's 1st XV move one step closer to title glory.

Dinbych secured promotion with this eight try bonus point victory in a free flowing entertaining game at Wrexham. The forwards had to work hard to match the industrious home pack in both tight and loose play whilst the backs again showed their class with some well crafted tries. The hosts also played their part by scoring four tries of their own mainly through their forwards for a try bonus point.

​After dominating the opening exchanges Dinbych took the lead in the eighth minute when right wing Owain Davies went over in the corner for an unconverted try after catching a well judged cross kick by outside half Dan O'Sullivan after the forwards had gone close to scoring themselves through driving play on the opposite side of the pitch. Wrexham replied with an unconverted try of their own five minutes later when hooker Mike Moore forced his way over from a driving maul generated from a short range line out. Dinbych then went ahead again mid way through the half when full back Gruff Roberts counter attacked from half way after fielding a relieving kick for centre Tom Seddon to go over in the corner for an unconverted try. Dinbych increased their lead when a Wrexham attack broke down near half way with quick thinking by No.8 Chris Forshaw releasing scrum half Garin Roberts to run in for a try converted by Dan O'Sullivan. Dinbych closed the first half scoring when left wing Kieran Bonar went over for their bonus point try converted by Dan O'Sullivan whose break had initiated the move.

​Trailing by twenty four points to five at the interval Wrexham then reduced the arrears early in the second half after a short period of pressure near the Dinbych line when flanker Matt Evans forced his way over for an unconverted try following good close range driving play by the forwards. Dinbych responded immediately when lock Gareth Beach regained possession from the restart kick to launch an attack by the backs with Gruff Roberts applying the finishing touch by running in from 40 metres for a try converted by Dan O'Sullivan. Wrexham again hit back with prop Jamie Weston forcing his way over for a try from a short range line out with outside half Sam Rogers adding the conversion points. With play fluctuating from end to end Dinbych went further ahead with a typical counter attack from deep in their own half with Garin Roberts going over for his second try converted by Dan O'Sullivan after good approach play by Gruff Roberts and Kieran Bonar. The topsy-turvy nature of the second half continued with Wrexham again reducing the deficit with another short range try with wing Jack Ratcliffe crossing in the corner for an unconverted try.

​Dinbych then closed the scoring in the final minutes with two well worked tries, the first from a scrum on the Wrexham 22 when Kieran Bonar went over for his second try after breaking in-field and taking a clever inside pass from Dan O'Sullivan who also added the conversion points. Replacement wing Aidyn Jones then crossed for Dinbych's final try converted by Dan O'Sullivan after swift handling by the backs following good quality possession from a line out just outside the 22 by Gareth Beach.
