Oct 7th: Bedwas 54 Ebbw Vale 5

For the first time in 3 seasons, Ebbw Vale conceded a half century of points in a league game as Bedwas ran in 8 tries at the Bridge Field on Saturday afternoon.

The home side had the bonus point in the bag before half time, crossing 5 times through Morgan Allen, Matthew John (2), Mike Callow and Tom Rowlands, all converted by Lewis Evans, before the Steelmen replied by driving home from a line out with Kristian Parker touching down.

With skipper Ronny Kynes and tight head prop Rob Sevenoaks off injured, the second half promised to be difficult for the visitors. In fact, Ebbw dominated the next 25 minutes in terms of territory and possession, with Cameron Regan, Kristian Parker, Rhys Francis and Jon Davies prominent as the Ebbw pack gained the upper hand and pounded the home defence. That defence held and, even with Bedwas reduced to 14 men for 10 minutes, the Steelmen failed to find that clinical cutting edge, shown so effectively by their hosts before the interval. Even more sadly, when Bedwas did lift the siege, they managed 3 more tries – Nicky Griffiths and Alun Rees (2) – as they went smoothly past the half century.

The last time Ebbw took such a hammering was at Llandovery in 2015. If you want to search for happy omens, that was the season we went on to be Premiership champions.

Byddwch yn cofio, efallai, gêm yn Llanymddyfri, ychydig dros ddwy flynedd yn ôl, pan gafodd Glynebwy grasfa gan y Porthmyn, yn colli gan 50 pwynt. Trist iawn oedd gweld shwt beth, a thrist iawn oedd gweld Bedwas yn dinistrio Gwŷr y Dur gan hanner cant o bwyntiau ddydd Sadwrn.

Dim dwywaith amdani: roedd Bedwas yn wych, yn chwarae gêm gyflym a chryf, yn rhedwg yn syth ac yn cefnogi ac ail gylchu’n gyson. Sgorion nhw 5 cais cyn hanner amser (Morgan Allen, Matthew John (2), Mike Callow a Tom Rowlands) cyn i Glynebwy ymateb gyda chais gan Kristian Parker. 35-5 oedd hi ar yr egwyl, a Bedwas yn rheoli’r gêm yn hollol ac yn haeddu eu mantais.

Chwarae teg i chwaraewyr ifainc, di-brofiad Glynebwy a fu’n dod mâs yn gryf yn yr ail hanner ac yn ennill rhan fwyaf meddiant a thiriogaeth. Bu blaenwyr Glynebwy’n brwydro’n ffyrnig, gyda Jon Davies, Kris Parker, Rhys Francis a Cam Regan yn amlwg iawn. Ond, yn anffodus, doedd dim ymyl dorri gan Wŷr y Dur ac, yn y pendraw, roedd eu gwrthwynebwyr yn gallu torri’n rhydd a sgorio teirgwaith, trwy Nicky Griffiths ac Alun Rees (2) i ennill y gêm, 54-5.

Os ydych chi’n cofio’r gêm yn erbyn Lanymddyfri, byddwch yn cofio rhywbeth arall hefyd, efallai: Glynebwy’n dringo lan o’r dyfnderoedd a mynd ymlaen i ennill yr Uwch Adran. Gwelwn ni ymateb ein chwaraewyr a hyfforddwyr presennol yn nes ymlaen – yn dechrau yn erbyn Bargôd ar ddiwedd y mis.
