RUGBY. MERTHYR 7pts., TREHERBERT 3. The Treherbert Northern Union foot- ball team visited Merthyr on Saturday, and played for the first time on the Rhydycar Grounds. The weather was ideal, and great interest was shown in the match. Treherbert started the game and immediately attacked. As the game opened out the visitors became dangerous, until Merthyr gained relief through Wyndham Davies. Two penalties in quick succession were awarded the home team, and Rees narrowly missed kicking a goal. Through useful kicking by Beard and good play by Handford, Merthyr were again placed on the defensive, and the Rhonddaites nearly drew first blood in a kick for goal—the ball just skimming the upright. At this stagei Rees, of Merthyr, was injured, and was carried off the field. Shortly afterwards, Charles made a good attempt to break through the Treherbert defence, but failed. Then Reed came off successfully and scored behind the posts, for Ryan to convert. There was no fur- ther score up to the interval. On resuming, play was again in favour of Treherbert, for the Rhondda forwards made several great rushes. A score was only averted by Wyndham Davies, who again saved his side well. Continuing the pressure, the Treherbert front rank made another bold bid for the Merthyr line, and Bevan scored a -well,earned try. The kick for goal failed. Merthyr added an- other goal to their score before time was called. Treherbert were handicapped to a considerable extent by the absence of Dan Fitzgerald, their prolific goal-getter, for no less than three easy chances at goal were lost for the Rhondda team through poor judgment.
