One last hurrah for Nick

It’s been the annual way that many local rugby players have run off the Christmas turkey, but 2016 will be the last traditional veterans encounter between Cobra and Welshpool for the Nick Whiffen Cup.

Nick was a popular local player who sadly passed away 25 years ago on a rugby tour to Ireland, and the match between the two was created as a memorial.

But after a quarter of a century of some entertaining encounters, Nick’s family has decided that Cobra’s 31-17 victory on Monday will be the last.

Tries for Dorian Lloyd (2), Matt Griffiths, Alun Pryce and Huw Tudor made the difference as the hosts celebrated victory.
