Senghenydd v Dowlais WRU NATIONAL PLATE ROUND ONE 07/10/2017 Match Report

Dowlais just about overcome this diifficult away Cup match against a very committed home side who were certainly up for a cup upset.
Dowlais started the game at a rate of knots and were rewarded by an exellent team try by pacey wing Cameron Trowbridge with all the backs involved.
The home side made a rapid response when their no10 found himself in acers of space and easily crossed under the post , and he added the 2points. They then took the lead when the no10 added a penalty.
Dowlais were making heavy weather of controlling the game. Captain Daniel Snape led by example and from their own 22 he broke free and linking with wing Daniel Butler who found Darryl Jenkins on his shoulder and the scrum half out paced the cover to score a great try.
With half time approaching Dowlais turned down a chance of 3points and the lead and opted to go for a line out which they lost, the 3points would have been easier.
The second half saw Dowlais take control and the frustration by Senghenydd came to the fore when their no8 was shown a red card for punching.
Dowlais took advantage when from a 5 metre scrum they drove the home pack over the line and Dan Snape touched down for the try and the lead. Indiscipline saw the home pack lose their prop for another moment of madness,and they paid the penalty when  a sweeping movement by Dowlais saw Daniel Butler take a difficult pass to cross in the corner, and put the game out of reach of Senghenydd.

Dowlais have a tough encounter on Saturday when the visit high flying Penallta coach leaving at 12.30
