2nds Leave Beddau Off Hook

Both sides were in the top two of the Rhondda and East Glamorgan's Division 1. The game was a much closer one than the final scoreline suggests. Beddau got off to a flyer and scored two converted tries in the first 15 minutes to lead 14-0. Mount started to get back into the game and just before half time, a drive over from a 5 metre lineout saw the visitors' lead reduced to 14-5. The second half saw the Old Firm apply a lot of pressure in and around the Beddau 22. Full back Gavin Roberts rolled back the years showing he still has plenty of pace to take an attack up to the Beddau 22. With the visitors' line under severe pressure, Mount eventually got over near the corner to make it 14-10. The game was in the balance but a couple of lost lineouts near the Beddau line allowed the visitors to clear their line. With 5 minutes left, a breakout from a scrum on the Beddau 22 saw the visitors take advantage of an overlap for their wing to run in under the posts and clinch a hard fought, entertaining game, which leaves them odds on to win the Division 1 championship. Both sides will meet again in Mountain Ash in the semi-final of the Rhondda and East Glamorgan Ivor Williams Cup in May.
