Despite the was one that got away!

Rhyl U12's 0 vs 29 Mold U12's

Rhyl travelled to Mold without a full team and the first thing that needs to be recorded is our thanks to the Mold team for supplying 4 players to enable a full 15 a side game. The Mold players who played for Rhyl did so with full commitment.

Rhyl didn't really start the game well, the early kick seemingly catching some of the team half asleep. However, the game was 10 minutes old before Mold managed to record a score for a 5 - 0 lead. Rhyl took the opportunity of the game to try players in new positions and it was heartening to see Harry Windsor,playing at scrum half put in one of the man of the match performances of the day. His energy, talking and commitment to to be a thorough nuisance during the game has given his coaches yet more to think about. Well done Harry! Rhyl gradually grew into the game and good combinations by harry, Owain and Tom put Ryan Espley away on the outside of his man. Ryan made good ground before being tackled. However, the support was too slow to allow Rhyl to build further on this break. This was punished before the break by a further converted Mold score for a 12 - 0 score at half time.

The second half continued in a similar vein but in the face of some good play from Mold and a howling wind disrupting the ball, Finley Mills and Efan Jones stepped up to the challenge. Finley took a direct approach, forcing Mold to have to deals with his drives up field, especially after his move to play at No. 8. Efan Jones put in the other man of the match performance of the day with his tackling, carrying the ball and hitting of rucks making him the stand out forward of the day. It should also be mentioned that his line out throwing was excellent, especially given the conditions, with every throw finding its target.

Rhyl were unlucky throughout the half not to be awarded a number of penalties when players seemed to have won good turnover possession at the breakdown. However, Mold made the most of the conditions and their play, adding three more scores, one of which was converted to go into the last 5 with a 29 - 0 lead. Rhyl seemed to collectively get going at this point and managed to link good drives with quick rucks and fast ball for the backs. The resolve to not yield which marked the last few moment of last weeks game was displayed again when Mold came looking for a 6th try. The home side seemed seemed to have the try in their reach before Efan Jones last ditch tackle and rip dislodged the ball, allowing Emily Owens to secure it and Harry Windsor to clear the Rhyl lines.

Plenty to work on on Wednesday for the team. See you all at Tynewydd Fields at 5.30pm.
