Lions dominant on New Field

With a picture perfect setting and early morning sunlight bathing the pitch, St David's College and Rydal Penrhos reacquainted themselves with a rivalry that spans both schools' histories.

The game started with both teams probing and defences being tested, and it was Rydal who nearly struck first with a well-executed move from the scrum, only to be held up on the line by a superb tackle by the St David's winger.

The first try came through doughty centre Riley, fast becoming known for his show and go - 5-0 to the Lions.

The rest of the game was played with great physicality and the St David's back row dominated the contact area, well led by Captain Jones who showed the way with a phenomenal display.

Mid-way through the second half, St David's physical fitness and contact dominance paid dividends with Rydal struggling to keep pace with the speed and commitment of the St David's team. This was exemplified by a stint of try line defence that kept the score to nil; this tenacity, belief and dedication is becoming a hall mark of the 2019 team.

Despite three yellow cards to the visiting team, the game was played in a fair and competitive spirit. Tries came from live wire back row Cotterell, Davies in the centre with a silky show and go, and from replacement Liptrot, with Roberts adding two conversions. 29-0 was the final score. The team are now gelling and learning to execute their systems well. The best is yet to come from this young group of Lions.

If you get a chance, come down and cheer them on - they are guaranteed to entertain.
