Pontypool 17 Ebbw Vale 23

Well done lads. A Gwent derby win is a Gwent derby win especially at the Park, scene of many a bashing back in the 70s and 80s.
Yes it was disappointing to see so many mistakes from both sides, but the stand out highlights were Rhys Williams's wonderful charge from halfway for the 1st try, and then Rob Lewis sniping over just after coming on in the 2nd half.
1st half

Early Ebbw pressure

The Vale pack set up the position from which Rhys Williams was to score.

2nd half

A wintery sun sets at Pontypool Park in December, as Aaron Bramwell lines up a kick.

Vale close out the win deep into Poola territory.
