RHYL and District continued their excellent recent run of results with an emphatic 80-12 home victory over Llanidloes.

The Dragons maintained their perfect record at their new base at Tynewydd Fields with an impressive attacking display in what was the first game since the death of club stalwart John Hardy.

A minute’s silence and applause was impeccably observed by a large crowd prior to the clash, which saw the home side run in no fewer than 12 tries against depleted opposition to see them occupy fourth spot in the WRU National League Division Two North standings with games in hand on the sides above them.

James Fisher-Jones was one of the standout performers on the day and capped off an impressive showing with a hat-trick, with Reeve Wright, Ben Jones and Tom Williams all helping themselves to a brace apiece.

The hosts completely dominated proceedings throughout and Che Hudson, Allan Davis and Stu Fellcrook also managed to cross the white wash during the rout, with Richie Williams continuing his fine form with the boot thanks to ten conversions out of a possible 12.

Seb Vidal’s men will look to make it three straight victories at home next Saturday when they welcome Newtown (2.30pm).

There was no such pluck for the Dragons’ second unit, who were on the wrong end of a 74-0 drubbing at a powerful Ruthin outfit, with the Rhyl and District Youth side putting a valiant effort before falling to a 36-19 home defeat to Mold.

Tries from James Hill, Connor Baker and Sol Williams ensured the game was tight heading into the closing stages, but the visitors ran in three scores in the final 20 minutes of the tie to secure success.
