Warriors Match Report 

The Warriors faced old rivals Mountain Ash, again coming up against a side with far more experience. However they once again fronted up, and put in a great performance but narrowly missed out on getting the result, as they went down 24-23.

Jack Chamberlain and Aaron Elliott were once again impressing with ball in hand but also working hard at the set piece and in defence. 

The scrum was good with the versatile Jake Rees doing well alongside Logan Richards and Aaron Elliott in the front row. 

Bargoed struggled to secure ball at the line-out and conceded a few penalties, and this ultimately proved costly. Although they matched Mount try for try,  the Mountain Ash kicker was on form with his goal kicking and kicked a few penalties. 

Ian Jenkins provided some experience, and was joined by fellow club legend and current 1st XV Coach Vinny Lott, who was helping out and came off the bench late on to score, Both provided some experience and leadership to this young side. 

Bargoed played some great attacking rugby and scored tries through Niall Alexander, Vinny Lott and Jake Rees with Rhys Thomas bagging 8 points with the boot. 

It was great to see Vinny coming on and joining son Ethan on the field, following in the footsteps of other teams who have figured father and son on field duos for Bargoed in recent times such as the Jones and Rogers families.  

Coach Matthew Hutcheon was upbeat in his assessment as his young charges once again did themselves proud, stating ‘The boys really worked hard and deserved to get the result, and after a couple of one point defeats that’s hard to take. However these boys have great character and will continue to work hard, and we are confident that the results will come as they continue to develop’
