Toms Scores in Bedwas Victory

Toms Celebrates Scoring
IslandStats.com
Three first half tries were enough to earn Brynley Toms and his Bedwas teammates a 22 – 10 victory in the penultimate game of the East Conference which will see the clubs all come together to form One Division from the 29th of December.

This victory secures third place for Bedwas and with two players (who had contrasting fortune on the night) reaching the milestone of 100 appearances for the club there was good reason to celebrate.

The match started at a fast pace and as Bedwas attacked Mathew John’s joy at reaching the 100 club was cruelly taken away as a serious looking knee injury after 7 minutes paid a premature end to his evening. Lewis Evans returning from injury replaced him.

Both sides looked for the elusive first score but it was Bedwas who gained it. Mike Callow broke through a tackle to see up the supporting Andrew Waite who ran in from 40 metres to put his side ahead. Steffan Jones adding the conversion.

Cardiff’s efforts to get back into the game were marred by unforced errors and it was no surprise when Bedwas scored their second of the evening after 25 minutes. The ball was quickly moved left and the second member of the 100 club prop forward Toms squeezed in at the corner. Jones’ difficult conversion went wide.

Cardiff responded with a close range penalty from Josh Fly after 29 minutes but on the stroke of half time Bedwas extended their lead with a try for Lewis Evans being fitting reward for his determination to cross the line. Steffan Jones’ conversion extended the lead to 22 points to 3.

Bedwas worked hard in attack to try and gain that elusive fourth and bonus point securing try but despite everyone’s efforts it could not be secured. Steffan Jones landed a penalty just before the hour to quell any thoughts of a Cardiff comeback and he and his colleagues defended superbly to deny Cardiff any space when attacking.

With time ticking away Cardiff continued to attack and got their reward with a try from replacement Tom Daley, converted by replacement James Dixon. There was insufficient time for further scoring as Bedwas comfortably held onto for the win.

Toms & Bedwas Return to Winning Ways

IslandStats.com
A strong second half featuring two Try’s from Number 8 Andrew Waite paved the way for Brynley Toms and his Bedwas teammates victory 32 – 24 on a cold November evening at the Bridgefield.

Bedwas dominated territory and possession for the first ten minutes but could not turn that advantage into points as the Keys defense kept them at bay. Against the run of play Keys took the lead after 10 minutes; a loose ball was hacked through from the Bedwas 22 yard line before finding its way to Josh Skinner who crashed through for a Try, Josh Prosser having no difficulty adding the Conversion.

Bedwas reduced the arrears two minutes later thanks to a Steffan Jones penalty but were reduced to 14 men after 17 minutes after Mathew John was given a yellow card for a tackle in the air.

Keys wasted little time to take advantage of the extra man as the space opened up for Leon Andrews to cross, again converted by Prosser.

Jones and Prosser exchanged penalties as Keys were then reduced to 14 men following Josh Skinner’s sinbinning for a deliberate knock on. Bedwas struck back just before the interval as following a scrum the ball was moved quickly right for Adam Williams to squeeze in at the corner. Steffan Jones’ conversion attempt drifted across the posts but he found his range two minutes with his third penalty of the half to see Keys leading by three points at the break.

With the night becoming colder Bedwas spirits were hugely lifted as following a catch and drive move from a line out Andrew Waite broke off the back of the maul to dive in for a try. Jones was unsuccessful with his conversion but eight minutes later the same combination resulted in a Waite try this time converted by Jones.

With the referee’s intervention becoming a frequent feature Jones added a further penalty just past the hour mark before Keys captain Scott Matthews pulled a try back for his side; Prosser’s conversion reducing Bedwas’ lead to five points.

Bedwas were determined to hold on to what they had earned and dug deep to keep out Keys who were equally determined to take the spoils but got no change from a resolute defense.

With six minutes remaining Jones slotted his fifth penalty of the evening to stretch the Bedwas lead to eight points but still had work to do as Keys fought to get at least a losing bonus point.

With the clock running down four successive Keys penalties and a sin binned Craig Hudd for allegedly entering a ruck from the side saw Keys close in on the Bedwas line before losing possession of the ball allowing the home faithful to celebrate a hard fought win.
