Gefni ruthless at Cae Smyrna
Two side's desperate to get out of the Division 1 relegation zone went toe to toe at Llangefni RFC.
Llangefni gained revenge for their early season defeat racking up eight tries for a bonus point victory in this Division 1 basement battle. Dinbych however did score four of their own to claim a bonus point which kept them above their hosts in the table.
Llangefni had the better of a scrappy opening ten minutes and opened the scoring with a try by scrum half Aled Jones who finished off a break down the middle with full back Rhys Hughes adding the conversion points. Dinbych responded well with left wing Kieran Bonar going over in the corner from a line out just inside the Llangefni half after good approach play by full back Gruff Roberts and right wing Aidyn Jones. Centre Owain Davies added the conversion to level the scores. Llangefni then went ahead after half an hour after a period of pressure which Dinbych defended well only for prop Bedwyr Williams to eventually to force his way over for an unconverted try. Llangefni increased their lead with a try by outside half Richard Foulkes after good support play with Rhys Hughes again converting. Dinbych then suffered a blow with skipper Narmer EL-Lamie forced to retire with an arm injury joining lock Niall Duke who had departed earlier. This did not stop them restoring the deficit to a single score with Kieran Bonar going over for his second try in the corner following outside half Garin Roberts and Owain Davies attacking down the narrow side from a scrum inside the Llangefni 22. Llangefni replied in injury time with left wing Gethin Williams finishing off a long range attack to cross for a try converted by Rhys Hughes.
Trailing by 26 points to 12 at the interval Dinbych again reduced the deficit in the opening minutes of the second half with a solo effort by Garin Roberts who cleverly chipped over the Llangefni defence from just inside their 22 and won the race to touch down near the posts leaving an easy conversion for Owain Davies. Unfortunately this revival was short lived with the hosts dominating the remainder of the half as they launched a number long range attacks breaking through the first line of Dinbych defence followed up by good offloading and support play to notch up four tries by Aaron Jeffries, Carrog Roberts, Aled Thomas and Gethin Jones with three conversions by Rhys Hughes.
Dinbych heads refused to drop and they secured their try bonus point in the closing minutes and with a youthful front row of Lewys Eden, Dafydd Jones and Ben Jackson in the front row and Rhys Johnson and Aled Evans-Hughes behind them, lock Gareth Beach now operating at No.8 picked up at the base of a short range scrum for Garin Roberts to feed Owain Davies who went over in the corner for an unconverted try.
