RTs Win Close Encounter

RTs pipped Blaina to win 6-3 in a tight battle on Central Park this past Saturday. 

The first half consisted of RTBs dominating possession for large parts only for Blainas stubborn defence to prevent them from scoring by forcing errors and turnovers. RTBs had the 1st chance of points with two penalties from out on the left, both penalties drifted past the right-hand post to leave the score at 0-0 but it was a case of 3rd time lucky as Ieaun Werrett made the score 3-0 to RTBs. Blaina missed a kick from half way to try level the scores just before the half time whistle. 

Half time - Blaina 0 -  3 RTBs

Blaina started the 2nd half with more possession than the 1st and asked some questions of the Tees defence and come away with 3pts from the boot of their Outside Half to even the scores. RTBs managed to get behind the Blaina defence with some clear line breaks in the 2nd half but wrong choices in key areas ruined potential try scoring opportunities. With about 15mins to go after some RTBs pressure in the Blaina 22, the lambs conceded a penalty which Ieaun Werrett converted to make the score 6-3 to the Tees, which is how the scoreline stayed until the final whistle.

Full time - Blaina 3 - 6 RTBs

This saturday RTBs make the short trip down to Crumlin RFC for the start of the WRU Bowl Competition. #Tees
