RHYL and District began the second half of the WRU National League Division Two North season with a dramatic 10-10 draw with league leaders Wrexham.

The Dragons emerged with a share of the spoils after a hugely competitive affair on the new 4G surface at Parc Eirias in Colwyn Bay, but the game was marred by a serious injury to Anthony Tilley, who suffered a fractured arm and dislocated wrist during the contest.

This was the final game before Rhyl move to their brand new base at Tynewydd, with the first fixture at the site scheduled for December 29 against derby rivals Abergele.

The away side began the game in imposing fashion and they went ahead with an unconverted try early on after a series of penalties allowed them to move into a prominent position to score.

Gradually the hosts began to settle more into the tie thanks to some impressive runs from the likes of James Fisher Jones, Callum Morris and Anthony Tilley, and they got back on level terms when winger Reeve Wright demonstrated his trademark pace to go over in the corner.

After the break saw the promotion favourites regain the advantage with another try that went unconverted during the opening exchanges of the period, and they would have pulled even further clear had it not been for some outstanding tackling from a Dragons defence led by Ben Jones and Jason Blackmore.

The hosts picked themselves up and tied things up once again when another well-worked move saw Che Hudson cross the white wash, and the Dragons had a golden chance to claim victory in the closing moments when they were awarded a penalty, which sailed narrowly past the upright.

Rhyl youth travelled to Bala and came away with an impressive 33-0 win in the North Wales Youth cup.
