Croesyceiliog Vs Dowlais 4/11/2017 Match Report

Croesyciliog 21pts. Dowlais 45pts.
The first half performance by Dowlais on their first ever visit to Croesyciliog was magnificent, and they obtained their try bonus point before half time .Dowlais were rampant and the home side had no answer to the speed of their attacks. Kristian Owen opened the scoring with a trade mark show and go, Steve James converting. Steve James then kicked a monstrous penalty from just inside the Dowlais half. Then from their forward dominance the ball was worked to Nathan Pritchard who crossed wide out, Steve James landing the difficult kick. Chrissie Williams forced his way over in the corner after good work from his pack , Steve James putting over another difficult kick, and from another flowing move wing Jake Howard scored again wide out making for another difficult kick which Steve James added , no problem'.
With the game won Dowlais used all of their bench, and this allowed the home team into the game, and they had the better of the second half, they scored two converted tries , and this woke Dowlais out of their slumber. James Quirke picked up a loose ball on the half way line and scampered through the retreating defence, and made the conversion easy for Steve James. The best try of the game was kept for the last Dowlais try, the backs were all involved and Kristian Owen made the final break to give Tom Griffin his try again in the corner, Steve James who was playing hs best game for Dowlais and was in imperious form added the extras again from the touch line.
Croesyciliog ran in for a deserved third try and can only reflect on the way they were blown away in the first half by a Dowlais side playing their best rugby of the campaign, and a badly needed win.
Saturday sees Caerleon visit the Klondyke K.O.. 2.30  and we hope to see  a repeat performance for the home supporters.
