30/03/2019 Risca Vs Dowlais Match Report

This was a vital win for Dowlais in their fight against relegation, and some reward for losing to Risca at home in December  to a last minute penalty.
All the scoring was done by the respective no10,s of both sides.
Sion Martin scored 5 penalties for Dowlais and Ben Murphy kicked 4 for Risca.
This was a much changed Dowlais side from last week due to injuries and unavailabilty, but the players who stepped in put up a stirling performance and really put their bodies on the line for the Dowlais cause.
Dowlais never allowed the home team to settle and was in their faces throughout the game.
The pack were dominant with the returning Dai Kelly immense showing what we have missed.No8 Joel Braddock continues to improve with every game and has taken his first team opportunity with great enthusiasm.The tackling showed a vast improvement on last week.Jack Chambers and Kristian Owen were solid in the centre and well supported by debutant wingers Luke Dudley and Adam Fealey.Sion Martin took his penalties well and scrum half Darryl Jenkins was a constant live wire and a nuisance to Risca.
The front row of Chris Thomas, Kyle Prosser and James Churchill were solid, and replacement prop Jamie Cross again showed us what we have been missing this season.John Davies grafted throughout . The flankers Luke Evans and Nick Thomas seemed to cover every blade of grass on the Stores field.Tom Griffin was safe as the last line of defence. The bench played their part with veteran Craig Lynch joining in ,two more returning players Lloyd Morgan and Tom Ayling were  in the thick of the action.
The coaches were well pleased with this performance and can only hope that the returning players will remain for the rest of the season.

Next Saturday another important game away to Hartridge.
