Afan Nedd u16's District 12 Dragons u16s development 31
Aberavon green stars RFC Monday 22nd August 2011
The u16s development travelled to Aberavon on Monday to play Afan Nedd part of the ospreys region. In a scrappy first 1/3rd both sides attempted to play open rugby but were blighted by some strange refereeing decisions.
Afan Nedd opened the scoring after 20mins with a great try by their right wing, this was followed by a converted score after a defensive mix up giving the opponents a healthy looking 12-0 lead half way through the 2nd 1/3rd .
The young dragons then decided to up the gears and opened their account with a fine try scored by no.8 Rhys Finney converted by out-half Calum Jones. From the resulting restart the dragons swept the length of the field for a great score by full back Jack Johnson ending the 2nd 1/3rd 12-12.The final 1/3rd was totally controlled by the young dragons with 2 length of the field tries scored by wing Jamie Hunter and centre Curtis Ayling the second again being converted by Jones. An excellent 1/3rd was completed with another try scored by s-half Gareth Harris after a neat dummy which Jones again converted giving the young dragons another convincing win to make it 3-0 in their pre-season friendlies.
