A LARGE crowd gathered on Wednesday night (April 6) for the mouth-watering clash of two of the top clubs in North Wales at junior level, Rhyl and Wrexham under-15s.

The game lived up to its billing, as a feast of rugby from both sides entertained everyone.

Rhyl got off and running first, with Zak Manly scoring an opportunist try from a scrum.

He proved to be a menace to the opposition, scoring again from the halfway line.

Wrexham responded with two tries, but this didn’t deter a resilient Rhyl team, who defended their own try line for some time, defying Wrexham of any score.

Not only that, but from a great turnover on their own try line, Rhyl decided to run the ball with Ben Senior scoring at the opposite end - a contender for try of the season.

Rhyl continued to outmuscle a strong and determined Wrexham team, with Josh Robinson, Leon Cotterall and Oliver Roe scoring tries in the second half.

Evan Peters had his kicking boots on, converting three of the tries, with the end result an emphatic 36-19 win for Rhyl under-15s.
