No Place Like Home

After heading down to Llangefni last weekend and taking a heavy defeat Abergele’s youngsters today fronted up to the challenge and picked up a very welcome and confidence boosting victory against the same opposition. With a few players back after missing last week Gele were able to implement some structure from training to show some good free running rugby. 

Llangefni received the kick off and to their credit hit Gele with some strong runs and structured play. Abergele got themselves into the game with some excellent carries from the forwards with Bobby Barnaby bringing his trademark carries to the front and Isaac Kitchen and Matty Allan following suit. Quick ball near the line allowed Aaron Clark to power over the line and open the scoring with Harvey Meyers adding the extras. Abergele’s confidence was high but an interception pass and some quick speed form the Llangefni centre levelled the score line. Abergele learnt from passed mistakes and didn’t let their heads drop, Daniel Cunnah and Bradley Longford who were playing their first games in the pack offered themselves well allowing quick ball for the backs to release Jack Moorely to score under the posts. Some solid defence from wingers Louie Franklin and Ethan Roberts deterred any wide attacks with Ethan Jilge solid under the high ball allowing Abergele to again get on the front foot this time for the forwards to power through finished strongly by Bobby Barnaby. Will Hewitt was filling in at prop and was holding his own against the experienced opposition pack, Brychan Hughes and Hayden Meyers were tenacious as ever at the scrum putting pressure on from the first whistle.

Second half brought about a few changes with Bailey Davies coming on at full back and making a solid defensive tackle but unfortunately injuring his shoulder in the process. Ben Marshall replaced him and was solid under the high ball and clearing his lines well. Kian Fazackerley made his eagerly awaited return playing his first game at hooker and hadn’t last any of his grit and determination and Cass Taylor using some quick footwork to gain some momentum narrowly missing out on his first try but not for some solid Llangefni defence. Newcomer Zack Whittle also getting some much wanted game time helping his team mates hold out towards the end of the game

Jack Moorely scored his second of the game with a draw and pass from Harvey Meyers putting him into space, Jack opened up his wheels from inside his own half to score in the corner. Harvey Meyers cleverly added a penalty before scoring a try of his own by jinking through a gap and sidestepping his way over the line.

Quick thinking from Hayden Meyers taking a 22 shirt and quick releasing Brychan Hughes to work his way up field with the support of his pack. The ball passed out again for Jack Moorley to secure his hat trick and finish the scoring for Gele.

Llangefni attacked right to the end putting pressure on and not giving up. A superb kick off a penalty from the Llangefni centre put them 5 meters out. A penalty allowed them to drive over the line but not for the efforts of Troy Fazackerley (who was his usual dominant self in open play in both attack and defence) who held the player up over the line to stop the score before the game ended.

A big thank you to Llangefni for travelling over, a very talented crop of players who were respectful right till the end. Diolch. 

Overall a very pleasing day for the mini swordsmen who can go into the next game with high confidence.
