Ebbw Vale had a comfortable win up in North Wales on the weekend, and, no, I didn’t go.
They beat Llandudno 70-odd to 3. There’s some doubt as to the exact score. This article makes it 76-3, Ebbw’s website reckons it was 74. Anyway, it was a nice change for Ebbw to get some tries.
Their reward is a home game against Ynysybwl in the 5th round, to be played on 24 January.
Scorers: Tries for almost everyone - Andy McLaughlin (2), Shaun Powell (2), Aaron Bramwell (2), Kristian Owen, Andrew Bevan, James Thomas, Anthony Lott, Jonathan Griffiths and Richard Wilkes. Bramwell converted eight.
Team: Andrew McLaughlan, Kristian Owen (c), Aaron Bramwell, Shaun Powell, Andrew Bevan; Dai Langdon, Llyr Lane; Anthony Lott, Mathew Williams, Marc Jones; Matthew Griffin, Jonathan Griffiths; Rhys Jenkins, Simon Pengelly, James Thomas. Subs: Richard Wilkes, Aaron Coundley, Nick Eaves, Gavin Lucas, Ieuan Evans.
Ebbw’s next game is away at Pontypool on Saturday 27 December.
