rhiwbina thirds narrowly lost the ron lucock cup final to a last minute penalty-exactly the same way as they lost to llanishen last year.this season's two league games were both 2 point winning margin's-the first to sully sports at home and then revenge a few weeks ago to rhiwbina at whitchurch hospital.so this was always going to be a close affair.
sully with one of the biggest packs in the district at this level started off at breakneck speed and quicly established a two try lead and led 12-0.
the squirrels hit back and in an enthralling battle they hit back with a couple of tries.
the game ebbed and flowed and rhiwbina led 22-21 after a try from alex rose,following a ten minute period where rhiwbina hammered away at the sully try line.
then in a dramatic finish sports gained a penalty and their outside half kicked the winning points.
after the disappointing performance versus llanrumney in the ninian stuart cup semi-final,this was a much improved performance.late withdrawls and a lack of a kicker did not help rhiwbina's cause and lady luck saw rhiwbina, runner's up for the second consecutive season.
my mom for an outstanding personal performance was gavin harris who gave his all
there is one final league game next wednesday may 9th k.o. 6.00p.m. at caedelyn v cardiff quins 111.
