Penygroes 14 Penybanc 67

After a great win in the cup the previous week, Banc travelled to bottom side Penygroes on Saturday. The game started at a frantic pace and it wasn’t long before fly half Owen Williams ghosted his way through to open the Tigers account. Centre Mikey Rees added the extras. With the home side already low on numbers, they lost a player to injury after 10 minutes. Despite this, they continued to take the game to Banc with their big runners causing the defence problems. Full back Wayne Williams was next to score after some great hands from the Tigers backs before wing Christian Hughes added a third. The bonus point was soon realised when wing Will Griffiths outstripped the covering defence to go over. Rees again, kicking superbly to add another conversion. Williams and Griffiths again combined for supporting flanker Cellan Harris to go over. Will Griffiths completed his hat trick before half time with Rees improving on both for 45-0 lead at the break.

Banc rung the changes at half time but soon got back into the swing of things with a Mikey Rees try and conversion. With the home side understandably tiring, Banc were guilty of taking their foot off the gas and after spilling the ball on halfway, the home centre was able to gallop over. Shortly after, another mix up lead to another home try, both being converted. Any hopes of an unlikely comeback were dashed though when burly Banc centre Tom Gale ran a try in from 30 metres. Dangerman Will Griffiths grabbed a fourth and for the second week running, the final word went to Wayne Williams as he ran the length of the field for the last try. The referee blew up early but this was a satisfactory performance for the Tigers. The home side more than played their part and deserve a lot of credit and we wish them well for the rest of the season. We look forward to welcoming Trimsaran to Tigertown next weekend.
