Mountain Ash (33) Tredegar (3)
January 14th 2012
Tredegar's disappointing season continued at Mountain Ash where the Old Firm ran out comfortable winners scoring thirty three points to three.
With both teams propping up Division One East, this was a must win game for both teams.
Tredegar were boosted by the inclusion of prop Sean Griffiths and centre Matthew Cummings who both strengthened the pack and back line respectively.
Indeed the Tredegar forwards gave the old firm pack a lesson in set piece play in the first half where the vistors took two strikes against the head and totally dominated the scrums.
Although Tredegar enjoyed a purple patch in the first half they did everything but score which was epitomised by Jordan Williams effort when the burly number eight just failed to get a try following a storming run.
With the Old Firm only leading by eight points at the interval the game was there for Tredegar's taking but a second half slump in form allowed Mountain Ash to cash in with more tries from Keepin brothers .
For the Old Firm, Josh Lewis had a good day with the boot landing thirteen points from three penalties and two conversions and Greg Jones slotted a penalty for the visitors.
Tredegar face another enforced period of inactivity but look forward to welcoming old rivals and league leaders , Ebbw Vale to the recreation ground on Saturday 4th February
