Dewar Shield - Gogledd Cymru South U15 0 v Rhondda Schools U15 65

5 years ago By Gary Williams

Dai Higgs, GC South Development Officers, gives his report on the Rhondda game and announces the squad for Islwyn Schools on Friday

GC South found a Rhondda schools team who had just come back from a pre season tour to New Zealand far too strong in all departments.


After a strong start by the home team in which Tom Andrews, Robin Jones and Osian Jones were prominant, they finally succumbed to Rhondda. The away team then asserted their authority in all areas especially at set piece, where their scrum and lineout was dominant.

Slack tackling didn't help the home teams cause, and although Tom Andrews worked tirelessly in the forwards and Robin Jones in the backs, they will all now know the standard of opposition they will be playing this season.

I'm sure they will learn from the experience and put things right for the trip to Islwyn Schools on Friday.
