Rhymney Valley Rugby League Notes. [By "the Old Wag."] Aberbargoed's chance of attaining to this sea- ?orl Sc ,ea^ue championship finished at Pontlottyn last Saturday, and now the issue is between Rhvm- ney and Pontlottyn at the latter, place to-morrow (Saturday). It need hardly be stated, some keen exchanges will he witnessed, and probably Ponty's previons gate records will be tested, which'fact they will doubtless eagerly welcome. Harking back to last Saturdays game; Aber started off as if they intended running their opponents off their legs, but Tom Davies, the homesters' last line of defence seemed like a veritable rock in defending his line, and drove them back repeatedly." After a succes- sion of hard fought scrummages, Aber made one or two dangerous bursts, and eventually scored. Nothing daunted by this reverse, Ponfy soon made tracks for the visitors' lines, and after some give and take play Lew Thomas secured, and dropped a goal, which gavo his side a lead, which they never afterwards relinquished. Resuming, both teams put in all they knew to win, but attack after attack made uo effect on the strong defence set up by both teams. Later, Ponty appeared to wear the visitors down, and a smart bit of play enabled Tommy Griffiths to round Ned Rees,' the extras failing. This ended the scoring, Poptlottyn being returned winners of a great game. For the win- ners Tom Davies, at full-back, played one of his best erames, of the remaing backs Sam Jones and Tom Griffiths were best. Forward, Hammonds Roberts and Mark Phillips appeared to be most in the picture, although there Were no shirkers among the remainder. For the visitors. Ned Rees (full- back), George Thomas and Tom Williams (three- quarters), Tiddler Taylor (half), and Ilayward and Davies eeemed most in evidence. Rhymney being without a League fixture met Rhymney United in friendly rivalry on the latter's own sward. The seniors, however, fielded a very unrepresentative side, but it may at once be stated they experienced but little difficulty in overcoming their fellow townsmen. Joe Howells scored the only success before the interval for the Seniors. After resuming, the visitors'were again soon in the ascendant, and a bout of passing between Vincent Jones and Ike Howells enabled the former to run through the United defence. To add further to the homesters' sorrow T S. Williams piloted the oval safely over the bar, which gave his side a clear lead of ten points. For the Town, Bevan at full- back, bar one error, did very well. Among the backs Iko Howells. Sam Vincent, Parry and T. S. Williams were the shining lights. "Forwards Joe Howell, the old vet-gran, Hennessy, and Git- tens were always to the front. Among the United, Percy Davies (full-back), McVicar and Morris Evans (three-quarter) were most noticeable. Newbridge anticipated meeting Blackwood at home, but to the intense annoyance of the home supporters the visitors failed to put in an appear- ance. On Monday, Aberbargoed visited Rhymney to oppose the United in the first, round of the knock- out competition. Both sides fielded very unrepre- sentative teams, and a very mediocre exhibition was witnessed. Even play marked the opening stages, but later a weak clearance by the home backs en- abled one of the visitjitg forwards to cross the ex- tras being added. The second half was of a very uninteresting" character, and no further score was registered.
