Yellow cards hit ‘Pool recovery

Welshpool put together a promising performance against a determined Denbigh side, but found themselves coming away without anything to show for their endeavours, going down 36-10 at home.

As has been the case in the majority of their Division Two (North) games this season, it was Welshpool who took the lead, with Daley Jones slotting over an early penalty after some good attacking play.

Denbigh soon responded, breaking through for two converted tries, but found further points hard to come by, going into the interval with a slender 14-3 lead.

With Welshpool starting the second half brightly, it looked like the hosts might have got something out of the game, but two consecutive yellow cards for winger Hywel Lloyd and full-back Gareth Jones, put the advantage back with the visitors, who claimed a third try. Daley Jones found his way through a gap to bring the score to 24-10, and Welshpool seemed likely to at least secure a valuable losing bonus point, but it was not to be, as the visitors crossed for two more late tries, giving them a slightly flattering 36-10 victory.
COBRA’s match against Machynlleth was cancelled after the club was called Friday night to say Mach couldn’t raise a side.

Welshpool: Ben Aldis, Ryan Griffiths, Dan Hulse, Dan Archer, Gareth Gregory, Tom Roberts, Fred White, Colin Morgan, Tom Carter (C), Daley Jones, Hywel Lloyd, Chay Bowles, Simon Jones, Paul Davies, Gareth Jones
Replacements: Pete Davies, Ben Corfield, Steve Cross, John-Rhys Davies
