RHYL and District ended the season with some silverware thanks to a 22-13 North Wales Intermediate Plate final victory over Welshpool.

The Dragons were at their resolute best at the home of Ruthin Rugby Club to land the showcase in convincing fashion, concluding what has been an encouraging campaign for the set-up across all levels.

Seb Vidal’s side almost went ahead within the opening 20 second thanks to a bursting run by James Fisher-Jones that saw him fall narrowly short of the try-line.

They did manage to get their noses in front soon after when skipper Richie Williams despatched a penalty, which was meet by an instant response in the form of a Pool free-kick to level proceedings.

This provoked another strong period of pressure for the Dragons on 20 minutes, and their impressive phases saw winger Reeve Wright demonstrating his trademark pace to cross the white wash. Williams added the extras.

After the break saw the WRU National League Division Two North side extend their advantage when flanker Tom Williams powered his way over the line for a try that was converted by Williams, but Pool mounted a fightback with two unconverted tries in as many minutes to bring them back within four.

Their task was made even more difficult midway through the half when Fisher-Jones was sent to the sin bin, but the Dragons’ reaguard held firm in the face of some consistent pressure with the numerical disadvantage.

Wright had a try disallowed moments after returning to the action, but the talented back was not to be denied in the closing stages with a superb run and score to secure the Plate for his side.

This is the latest in a series of notable accolades for the club, who moved to their outstanding facility at Ty Newydd Fields and saw them finish in fifth position in the standings.
