RHYL and District picked up back-to-back WRU National League Division Two North win thanks to a superb 22-7 success at Bangor.

The Dragons emerged with bragging rights after a very physical affair in difficult conditions to move into seventh spot in the standings, with their impending move to their new community base another huge plus for a club on the up.

Despite the eventual result it was the hosts that drew first blood with a converted try early on, but this provoked the away side into life and they enjoyed a tremendous amount of possession thereafter without penetrating the resolute home rearguard.

An infringement midway through the half resulted in a yellow card for the home side and Richie Williams reduced the arrears with a well struck penalty.

They continue to make the most of their numerical advantage immediately following the restart when a fine passing move presented a chance to James Fisher-Jones to cross the white wash, with Williams despatching the conversion attempt to give the Dragons a three-point cushion at the break.

After the interval saw the visitors continue to show some attacking flair to pull further clear of their opponents, with flanker Cal Morris rewarded for his exceptional individual display with two tries throughout the second period.

Williams managed to hit one of the conversions to round off the scoring during another outstanding overall performance from Seb Vidal’s improving side.

He said: “Credit is given to the Bangor defence for holding out in the first half otherwise the score would have been higher.

“Games between Rhyl and Bangor are always good hard games with both teams having wins over the opposition, so I was delighted with the win.”
