Valiant Dinbych lose out to Nant

Caeau Les Phillips welcomed reigning Division 1 North Champions - Nant Conwy RFC for a pulsating fixture.

Nant Conwy were forced to work hard in a keenly contested encounter for this bonus point victory which cemented their third place in Division 1 North. Despite languishing third from the bottom of the table Dinbych gave a spirited performance based on a strong scrummaging pack of forwards, a resolute defence and strong running by a back division with Tom Seddon, Gruff Roberts and Aidyn Jones in particular threatening whenever they had possession.

Dinbych could not have had a better start as they opened the scoring in the fifth minute when they broke through in midfield following a line out just inside the Nant half for centre Tom Seddon to go over for an unconverted try. They increased the lead five minutes later with a try by right wing Aidyn Jones who went over in the corner after latching on to a pin point cross kick by outside half Garin Roberts who converted with an excellent kick from the touchline. Nant replied immediately when they charged down a relieving kick following the restart with scrum half Guto Dafydd winning the race to touch down for a try converted by centre Steffan Horan. Nant now began to dominate territory and possession as they pressed deep in the Dinbych half but were thwarted by a strong Dinbych defensive effort led by the back row of Tom Eden, Gavin Rizzi and No.8 John Winning. With half time approaching Dinbych were forced to concede a number of penalties close to their line eventually leading to Gavin Rizzi being dispatched to the sin bin. Nant eventually took advantage and from the last of a number of scrums near the Dinbych line when despite a tremendous scrummaging effort led by the front row of Joe Davies, Dafydd Jones and Peter Shoosmith, Nant broke through for centre Jack Moriarty to cross for a try with co- centre Steffan Horan adding the conversion which gave them a narrow lead by 14 points to 12 at half time.

Dinbych continued to threaten early in the second half with chances on both flanks but a combination of taking the wrong options and excellent Nant defence denied Dinbych especially on the left where Tom Seddon triggered two try scoring opportunities with a couple of long breaks. Nant however again began to dominate thanks to their aggressive work at the breakdown and their excellent support play as they attacked at every opportunity. As the half progressed former youth players Lewys Eden and Andrew Deakin making their league debuts were introduced by Dinbych together with lock Max Sharples reappearing after a long absence. It was not until the final quarter that Nant were able to extend their lead with a second try by Jack Moriarty after Nant had generated a driving maul from a short range line out. They then secured their bonus point try and at the same time denied Dinbych a deserved losing bonus point in the closing minutes when prop Tom Oliver forced his was over for a try converted by Steffan Horan.
