Emphatic win for Rugby Welsh

Rugby Editorial 25th Oct, 2018   0

RUGBY Welsh enjoyed an emphatic 72-12 away win at Trinity Guild in Midlands Five West (South) at the weekend.

Welsh were immediately on the front foot and Loz Galleno quickly opened the scoring when he burst away from a line-out for the opening score.

Welsh looked dangerous with the ball in hand, with the backs looking to run the ball at every opportunity and the forwards interlinking well, despite Guild’s best efforts to deny them possession.

Tries came at regular stages in the first half with Jack Taylor, Galleno with his second, the returning Guy Shaw, Adam Bond, Wayne Grant and Angus Wilson all getting on the scoresheet to open up a 43-point half-time lead.

To Guild’s credit they kept going with their mixture of very experienced forwards and young backs always working hard.

In the second half they were deservedly rewarded for their efforts with two tries, one of which was converted.

With the game comfortably won by half-time Welsh were a little more lacklustre in the second period but continued to try and move the ball out wide when the opportunity arose.

Galleno with another barnstorming run and Jack Taylor with two long range scores both completed their hat-tricks while captain Bond scored his second of the afternoon.

The scoring was competed by second row Jamie Roche, with Angus Wilson also converting six of the tries.

Welsh will be hoping their good form continues when they face rivals AEI Rugby on Saturday at Alwyn Road.
