Rugby Notes

I’m falling way behind with my reviews. The last game I saw was the 19-19 draw with Bridgend a couple of weeks ago when Ebbw battled back from a shocking first half display to snatch a draw playing into a howling gale in the second half. My man of the match that day was centre Shaun Powell who crossed the gain line every time ha had the ball.

Last week Ebbw Vale beat Ynysybwl 47-13 in the Cup, but I couldn’t make it to the game.

Match reports can be found on the Ebbw Vale RFC website and Eye Jay’s blog The Steel Daffodil, and there are some top photos on Whitcombe’s Flickr site, from where this picture of Andrew Bevan in action last weekend was borrowed.

Ebbw’s reward for their win over ‘Bwl is a home tie with Swansea on 21 February.

Before that Ebbw have trips to Newport this Saturday (won’t be going for all the reasons that Eye Jay sets out in his blog) and Llanelli the following Tuesday (won’t be going, the league fixture setters really are a bunch of numpties aren’t they – the longest trip on a workday evening).
