A Tale of Two Halves

Dinbych 29 - 14 Gele 

We were blessed with a glorious, sunny October morning as our future stars ventured up to Caeau Les Phillips to face a lively Dinbych outfit. Following a lengthy spell since their last outing, Chris Meyers and his mighty men were in a confident mood given the numbers and training efforst of recent times. 

Dinbych started the stronger outfit captilising on their penalty opportunities and little errors from Gele, some slick hands witnessed some fantastic scores in the first half by Dinbych. The second half witnessed a change in the tide, the hunger and desire from Gele levelled up, so much so, they kept Denbigh out and scored two fantastic tries for their efforst, a pleasing second half display laying foundations for a great training session on Tuesday evening. 

Starting with a slight slope ahead of them, signs of rust and frustrations were evident in the opening minutes, but those hurdles were soon washed away as Gele settled in, albeit an early score for Dinbych could have really dented spirits. The back row combination of Aron Hedd Jones, Troy Fazackerley and Brychan Hughes were menacing around the park, disrupting play where possible and defending with true grit and determination. Troy Fazackerley was notably Player of the Match on the day with strong carries, lineout communication and tackling. 

The duo of Harvey and Hayden Meyers controlled the game from the prominant 9 & 10 positions, for their age showed maturity with game management, touch finding kicks and passing - a must note, Hayden throwing his body on the line to prevent a certain Dinbych score! In the outer channels we had some promising performances from Ethan Roberts who excelled in running with the ball and defensive efforts, with the linkes of Ethan Jilge, Bryn Edwards, Ben Marshall, Louie Franklin, Cassius Taylor and Luke Kellett all making a good account of themselves in the back division, with great positioning, footwork and both attack and defensive sets, a pleasing performance on the whole. Luke also stepped in to help the forwards in spells, a credit to his adaptability. 

The centre pairing of Aaron Clark and Oliver Howson caused havoc at times, with some lung busting runs and silky footwork, there is no doubt that this pair will carve open defences all season as the games come thick and fast.

The front row combination fronted up well, with live scrums Matty Allan, the ball carrying Bobby Barnaby and Jack McCaughrey were outstanding on the whole, bolstered by their second row contingent of Issac Kitchen and Kian Williams who carried and hustled well throughout. 

All in all, plenty of positives to take away from the fixture, albeit not the result we all wanted, we can't fault the efforts of these young men - the numbers keep on growing on a weekly basis so we look forward to regrouping on Tuesday evening down at Parc Pentre Mawr in preparation for a Friday Night Lights fixture at local rivals, Rhyl and District RFC. 

Thanks to all parents, volunteers and players as always.
