Glamorgan Wanderers 27 Ebbw Vale 23

It may still be August, but the rugby season is under way, and it began with an extremely frustrating afternoon for Ebbw Vale at the Ely Memorial Ground.
A stunning first half display, masterminded by new half backs Andrew Jenkins and Gareth Bowen, saw Ebbw lead 23-0.
With Ebbw playing against the wind 2nd half, Wanderers upped the ante, and scored 27 unanswered points in a 30 minute spell.
There was much for the Ebbw faithful to be positive about, but an opening day away win was within grasp and would really have kickstarted the season.
