RHYL and District maintained their ten-point cushion atop Specsavers National League Division Two North with an emphatic 34-14 success at Newtown.

Th Dragons’ made light work of their latest fixture to further enhance their promotion prospects, and Jimmy Waring’s men will now enjoy a two-week break to rest and recuperate before welcoming championship rivals Mold to Tynewydd Fields for a pivotal encounter.

A blistering start from the away side saw them go into the break with a commanding 24-point advantage, and although the hosts rallied in the second period it was not enough to overcome the deficit against a formidable Rhyl side.

Brad White and Reeve Wright were the main beneficiaries of some high-octane rugby with a pair of tires apiece, with skipper Simon Johnston and Owen Jones also crossing the white wash during the rout.

Jones added three successful conversions to round off another impressive performance that attained a bonus point.

There was plenty of reasons to be encouraged for Dragons’ second team manager Karl Duddle despite his side falling to a 24-15 defeat at Llandudno.

The visitors gave the all-conquering Goats’ plenty to think about during the encounter, which will stand them in good stead as they get to set to take on Colwyn Bay 2nds in a fortnight.

Rhyl and District’s youth side were beaten at Caernarfon in a cup clash despite tries from Mike Thomas and Owen Reece-Jones, but he Dragons’ U16 squad booked their place in the RGC East U16s Cup final thanks to a 12-0 victory over Mold.

The young side matched the feat already achieved by Rhyl and District’s U14 squad in making a regional final, which will be contested on March 1.
