PENARTH v. NEATH. [BY OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] The match between Neath and Penarth on Satur- day last afforded no means of judging the compara- tive merits of the two clubs. Penarth's men consisted of subs. for the main part and the same may be said of Neath. Garrett and Kirby were at Swansea playing for Glamorgan against Lancashire, and other men who had been picked against Neath, could not possi- bly fulfil their engagement. Neath, also, had men playing on St. Helen's field, and others who could not turn up, and, consequently, as regards proper representation, were in quite as bad a position as Pen- arth. The meeting, therefore, as I say, was not a proper test as to the relative merits of Penarth v. Neath. Penarth, however, were defeated by the place kick; Neath scoring one goal and one try, and Penarth two tries. âoâ It is rather remarkable that place kicks often repre- sent the difference in the teams sent out by these two clubs. Neath were defeated by a place kick only when they visited Penarth and, early last season, Penarth defeated Neath, on the Neath ground, to the same tune. âoâ THE GAME. Penarth kicked off against the wind, and the ball by a good return was sent back to half-way and play settled down mid-field. After a free being granted to the homesters the venue was changed to the visitors' 25, but Alexander snapped a pass intended for a Neath man, and was soon sprinting along to the home line. He reached the home quarter flag, and was grassed. An interchange of kicks now took place, and Hutchings passed out well from a subsequent scrum. A brilliant bout of passing now ensued amongst the visiting backs, and Alexander again put in a fine run and succeeded in scoring an unimproved try. âoâ After the kick-out, the homa forwards showed up well, and by fierce and repeated rushes carried play to the Penarth line, and Griffiths succeeded in getting over, but no goal resulted. âoâ Neath played hard on the kick-out, but up to half- time nothing more was scored on either side, the score read in z:â Penarth 1 try. Neath 1 try.
