Abersychan 24 - Tredegar 25

Abersychan hosted top of the league Tredegar Rfc at home on Saturday and were unlucky not to get the win, but still came away with a loosing bonus point.

Abersychan got off to an excelent start with an early penalty which Abersychan Scrum half Deri King converted.

The Abersychan pack were on top form on the day, they dominated the much bigger Tredegar pack in the scrums by winning their own ball and also marching Tredegar back off their scrums too!

Abersychan second row Kyle Hall did some outstanding work by turning over lots of Tredegar's posession at the lineouts.

With the Abersychan pack dominating the game up front they were awarded another 2 early penaltys which Deri King converted, leaving the visitors with 9 unanswerd points.

Tredegar replied with a try of there own that couldnt be converted and Abersychan soon responded with a try of their own from outside half Ashley Teague which was nicely converted by winger Casey Roomus.

This saw Abersychan going into half time with a healthy lead (16-5).

The second half continued with the Abersychan pack dominating up front and the backs getting a chance of clean ball to attack the Tredegar defence.

Abersychan gave away a few penaltys in the second half that saw Tredegar take quick tap penaltys and score another 2 trys that were again un converted.

A few harsh desisions made by the referee against Abesychan saw the visitors get awarded another try much to the protests of the Abersychan players and supporters.

Tredegar were on the attack into the Abersychan 22, but an outsanding interception saw Abersychan full back Rhys Hallett, run a 70 meter try in. His first try for Abersychan.

Going into the final 10 minuites of the match and the game was wide open with score at 21-20 to Abersychan.

More good work in the scrum from Abersychan saw them awarded a penalty that Casey Roomus converted. But Tredegar quickley responded with their fifth un converted try of the game, setting the score at 25-24 to Tredegar with less than 5 minuites left to play.

With less than a minuite left Abersychan were awarded a penalty far to the right of the posts which Deri King stepped up to kick under immense pressure. He was very unfortunate to slightly miss and with that went the final whistle.

Abersychan put up a great perfomance and were very unlucky not to get the win, loosing 24-25 to top of the league Tredegar.

Abersychan wish Tredegar all the best in the rest of the season.

Abersychan are in Swalec Bowl action next week (08-10-16) away against  Forgeside. 2:30 kick off.
