RUGBY, TREHERBERT ATHLETICS 4pts., TREBANOG 0. Playing at Trebanog in wretched weather on Saturday, Treherbert Athletics managed to defeat their opponents by a drop goal after a very hard game. The incessant rain drenched both players and spectators, but the ground, situated at a considerable elevation, was in a sur- prisingly good condition. Treherbert kicked off, and from the ensuing scrums the ball was sent out to the visiting quartet. Some excellent passing resulted, and one of the centres was only brought down a yard from the line. Treherbert did most of the aggressive work, and but for the keen defence of the Trebanog backs, many tries would have been scored. Passing among the backs became less frequent after half-time, and as the game was drawing to a close great excitement prevailed. Both teams were doing their utmost to score. The defence, however, was sound on both sides, and a pointless draw seemed the probable result. But Treherbert had not done yet, and play was carried up to' the Trebanog line, a score being only just averted by the home custodian, who pluckily went down to the ball. A scrum followed, and the ball was sent out to Alec Lewis, the Treherbert right centre, who without hesitation dropped a very beautiful goal. The visitors were, without doubt, the better team, and deserved to win. The situa- tion was often saved for Trebanog by the fine play of their full-back. J. Lewis the visitors' wing, played a great game,' He showed extraordinary speed and dash. The Treherbert forwards played exceed- ingly well. They continually beat their opponents for possession in the scrums. TREHERBERT EX-SCHOOLBOYS 6pts., PENYGRAIG LADS 0. These two teams encountered each other at Treherbert on Saturday, before a fair crowd. This was a League match. -Lhe Ex-Schoolboys are undefeated since- iast year, this being their second League match this_ season. Treherbert plaved with the wind in their favour during the initial half, but no score was recorded until after the interval. W. Hobbs I opened the scoring by diving on to the bail after a forward rush. The try was not converted. The home backs bror<o-ht 9 several very brilliant bouts of nassiiW m which Tom Rees figured prominently Dan Green (inside half) received the ball from one of the scrums, and slipped away on the blind side. He feinted to pass to his outside man and cut through the defence, thus scoring the second "try for the Ex-Schoolboys. The kick at goal again failed. The home team continued to have the better of the game until the whistle sounded. The afforded much interest to the spectators. The players fielded the ball accurately in suite of its slippery state; and the passing of the backs was very creditable. Tom Evans (the Ei-Schoolhoys' captain) led his forwards admirably, and his men never failed to back him up well By this win. the Ex-Schoolbovs have bashed another two points in the Second Divi- sion of tne Old Boys' League. Altogether, they have won three points out of a pos- sible four.
