October 25th: Pontypridd 25 Ebbw Vale 41

Ebbw Vale climbed to 6th place in the Premiership with this 5-try, bonus point win over Pontypridd, based on almost complete dominance up front, putting the hosts’ scrum and lineout under unbearable pressure. First half tries from Ronny Kynes and Jared Rosser – the latter from an attacking Pontypridd lineout deep in Ebbw’s 22m – plus Josh Lewis’s conversions and two penalties gave the Steelmen a 20-10 half time advantage. After the interval, there were further touchdowns for Ethan Doyle, from a scrum pushover, a classic ‘Catch’n’Kynes’ and a peach from Josh Lewis who capitalised on excellent work by Ryan Gardner and Rhys Clarke. Lewis converted all three for a 21-point match haul and a 100% kicking record.

Dringodd Glynbwy i 6ed safle yn yr Uwch Gynghrair gan roi grasfa i Bontypridd, ac yn sicrhau pwynt bonws trwy sgorio 5 cais. Fel arfer, seiliwyd y fuddugoliaeth ar oruchafiaeth y blaenwyr, oedd yn rhoi eu gwrthwynebwyr dan bwysedd annioddefol yn y sgrym a’r llinell.  Daeth dau gais yn yr hanner cyntaf, gan Ronny Kynes a Jared Rosser – yr ail ar ôl i Pontypridd golli’r bêl o linell yn ddwfn yn 22m Glynebwy. Roedd maswr Josh Lewis yn llwyddianus â’r trosiadau, yn ogystal â dau gic cosb i wneud y sgôr yn 20-10 ar yr egwyl. Daeth pwyntiau Pontypridd drwy gais gan asgellwr Dale Stuckey, a throsiad a chic cosb gan Ceri Sweeney.

Ar ôl yr egwyl, daeth ceisiadau i Ethan Doyle, o sgrym ‘pushover’, yn glasur o ‘Catch’n’Kynes’ a’r olaf i Josh Lewis a fanteisiodd ar waith rhagorol gan Ryan Gardner a Rhys Clarke. Trosodd  Lewis bob un o’r tri i sicrhau 21-pwynt a  chofnod cicio cant y cant.

Yn hwyr, daeth Ponty’n ôl gyda dau gais ond roedd y gêm wedi cwpla erbyn hynny, a Glynebwy yn ennill gan 41 pwynt i 25.
