RHYL and District’s WRU Bowl campaign is over for another season after they were comfortably beaten 32-7 at Fairwater.

The Dragons’ had nothing to show from their long trip to Cardiff for the clash, which saw a very strong home side showcase their immense prowess to great effect throughout the one-sided affair.

The Specsavers Two North title hopefuls will look to get their season back on track this Saturday when Newtown visit Ty Newydd Fields, which promises to be another massive indication of the club’s overall fortunes as the term progresses.

There was better news for the Dragons’ second unit, who emerged from their home clash against Llangollen with an impressive 34-12 triumph.

Despite dominating possession during the opening stages of the clash, the home side were finding it tough to force their way over the line and had to be content with an Owen Jones penalty to give them a slender cushion.

This joy proved to be short-lived as the visitors struck back immediately following the restart thanks to an unconverted try, but the Dragons’ went into the break ahead after some quick-thinking from Jones presented a chance to Haydn Taylor, who made no mistake for a score that was converted by Jones.

After the break saw the away side regain the initiative when their physicality in the pack saw them notch their second try of the contest, which was this time converted, but this was met by a sensational spell of attacking rugby that resulted in the hosts going over on four occasions in quick succession.

George Owen, Simon Cheetham, Gaz Pierce and Chris Fellcrook were the beneficiaries of some outstanding approach play from the home side, with Jones adding two more conversions to round off the scoring.

Next up for Rhyl 2nds is a league fixture away at Bethesda next Saturday .
