EMOTIONS were running high at Rhyl Rugby Club as they said goodbye to their facility at the Waen.

There was a superb turnout from the community for the occasion, which featured three separate contests and a host of different activities to mark the end of an era.

The first team produced a scintillating display of attacking rugby to come away with a 47-21 victory over Cobra, where they managed to run in seven tries throughout a dominant display.

Richie Williams converted six of the scores to round off an excellent all-round performance, and the result leaves them in sixth spot in the WRU National League Division Two North standings ahead of their final game of the season at Llanidloes, before they begin preparations ahead of their highly anticipated move to Tynewydd Road.

After a difficult season, Rhyl and District’s second unit finished on a high with a thumping win over Mold Thirds.

Skipper Seth Pierce led the way with a pair of tries within the opening 20 minutes, with Phil Briggs, Nic Drinkwater and Jim Griffiths also crossing the white wash during the rout.

The festivities started when Rhyl U13s playing a touring side from Wolverhampton, and the spectators were entertained throughout by the Trelawnyd Male Voice Choir and later by the group HotWood.

Volunteers will now begin working to clear the site, which has already been sold to developers.
