Pitmen just too good for the Squirrels 2nds


WRU Conference East

Match Report: Rhiw 2nds 3 Penallta 2nds 50


The Squirrels took an early lead in the game when Penallta were caught offside from a ruck in their own 22 and Liam Herdman slotted the penalty for 3 points. That was a rare visit to the Red Zone against quality opposition who scored eight tries in total.


While we didn’t see any tries from the Squirrels, we saw commitment and effort and some nice individual performances. Joe Milford and Liam Herdman showed some glimpses of why the 1st team coaches might be interested in testing them at the higher level.


Ultimately, Penallta were just too good and deserved the victory, scoring some nice tries from open play.  The silver lining for the Squirrels was seeing Smithy back after his operation and in his coaching role, supporting Ricky Thomas.
