Treorchy 51 - 0 Abercynon

The Oval, 27 October 2012 (report by Carl Spiller)
SWALEC Plate Round 1

After two wins on the bounce, Treorchy took a break from their league campaign as they entertained Division Two East side Abercynon in a one sided contest at the Oval.

With the WRU continuing with the policy of splitting the Swalec cup competitions into three tiers Treorchy are this year entered into the Plate competition following the summer restructure of the leagues.  A double edged sword as the chance to play the premier clubs is replaced by the increased chance of an appearance at the Millennium Stadium in the tournament won last year by division rivals Penallta.

Playing a strong side Treorchy, playing into the strong wind in the first half, took little time to stamp their authority on the game as the forwards squeezed the visitors for territory, while exploiting space in midfield as the Zebras notched three tries in the opening quarter.  After a poor pass butchered an easy try moments earlier, the first try came courtesy of centre Cory Dunn as Treorchy stretched the visitors defence.  The second came following an advantageous bounce straight into the arms of chasing outside half Jordan Lloyd following a box kick on half way that was allowed to bounce and the third as centre Trystan Lazarus raced through a gap in the defence following a strong scrum from the home side.

Abercynon showed glimpses of why they had won their last three Division Two East contests as they responded to the early set backs, but butchered a glaring try scoring opportunity knocking the ball on in the home side's twenty two with spare numbers.  They would not get another chance as Treorchy then stretched further away as centre Lazarus notched his second try following crisp off the top line out ball and two excellent passes from the half backs put him through a gap and his pace did the rest for the home side's fourth try.

Treorchy's patchy start to the season has no doubt been influenced by the early season spate of injuries and the Zebras welcomed back another player making his return from injury in the shape of utility forward Rhys Gillard.  Starting the game in the second row, his hard running, which at times has been much missed this season, appeared not to be affected by the lay off as he made a number of key bursts, impressing with the number of yards after the tackle.  With Treorchy utilising the bench with the game secure, Gillard moved to the third row in the scrum and was immediately effective as he picked up a lose ball from a crumbling visitors scrum to charge up an undefended wing before offloading just short of the line for flanker Garyn Daniel to notch the try.  A few minutes later, after injuries to the visitors forced the scrums to passive, Gillard notched a try of his own this time picking up from a passive scrum the visitors were unable to stop him barging over.

In-between the two tries, centre Lazarus marked his first game as captain of the Zebras with his third try, registering his personal hat trick in the process as he again showed his pace against a wilting defence.

As the game ticked into the final ten minutes Treorchy continued to carry a major threat behind and wing Peter Hutchings added to his already impressive career try tally with a five pointer following an inside pass deep in Abecynon twenty two.  To complete the back division's scoring for the day, fellow winger Ross Jones was rewarded for a lively performance on debut with a try as another passive scrum on halfway saw full back Celyn Ashton show a great turn of pace to streak through a gap before offloading to Jones just short of the line to conclude a comprehensive nine try victory.

Next week Treorchy welcome Ynysybwl to the Oval as the focus returns to Swalec Division One East.

 

Merthyr 32 - 38 Treorchy  

Merthyr, 27 October 2012 (report by Carl Spiller)

On a perfect day for rugby Treorchy notched up their first away victory in an entertaining fixture away to Merthyr last Saturday in Swalec Division One East.

The opening ten minutes saw the teams exchange penalties, but the opening try came against the run of play as Merthyr intercepted a blind pass in midfield from the visitors to allow a free run into to score beneath the posts after fifteen minutes.

Both teams were intent on running the ball wherever possible, but the game turned ugly as a head high tackle saw Merthyr reduced to 14 men on the 20 minute mark.  In addition to distorting the playing numbers, the yellow card appeared to lift the Zebras who upped their levels at the break down and some quick ball allowed powerful number eight Craig Everett to barge over the try.

Before and after being reduced to 14 men, Merthyr appeared to have trouble organising themselves in defence and Treorchy should have exploited home side outnumbered.

On the half hour mark Treorchy eventually notched their second try as a very poor kick chase from the home side allowed Treorchy to counter attack from just inside their own half, this time the extra numbers were fully exploited to allow lively flanker Garyn Daniel to score the try.  The conversion was added as Treorchy stretched out into a 15-10 lead as Merthyr were restored to 15 men having conceded 12 points during the ten minute period.

After a disappointing first half for the home side, they suddenly burst into life as the game edged close to half time and some good work amongst the forwards set up a platform in the Treorchy twenty two which allowed a score in the right hand corner, but the visitors will be disappointed not to have dealt with the situation better as a missed tackle allowed the score when it looked like the move had fizzled out.  The conversion was missed from the touchline and the halftime whistle blew with Treorchy leading 18-15, but possibly wondering how the game was so tight.

From the kick off Merthyr looked a different team and an early penalty levelled to scores and from the kick off a well disguised pass in midfield allowed Merthyr to exploit the deep Treorchy defence expecting a kick return and some good hands saw the score beneath the posts as Merthyr retook the lead.

With the game well and truly back on, Merthyr shot themselves in the foot as a half break from replacement scrum half Steffan Jones was brutally stopped with another head high tackle, this time of the swinging kind.  Unbelievably the offence came from the same culprit as the first half and with two yellows an option for the referee he chose the straight red route and Merthyr were forced to play the remaining twenty five minutes a man short.  Treorchy full back Celyn Ashton slotted the penalty from near half way as Treorchy reduced the arrears to 25-21.  A couple of minutes later he was adding a conversion as a poor kick from deep in their own territory by Merthyr was put through the hands by the Zebras and replacement centre Trystan Lazarus exploited some space out wide to mark his return from injury with his side's third try of the afternoon.

With their opponents down to 14 men a bonus point win seemed a formality, but it took until ten minutes from the end of the game for the fourth try to come as an excellent kick from Ashton forced Merthyr into conceding a line out on their own line and the resultant rolling maul saw hooker Robert Jones cross for the bonus point try.  Ashton added the conversion as Treorchy appeared to have finally taken control of the game 35-25.

The home side though were far from done and after a couple of penalties had gifted them field position a rolling maul saw them pick up a bonus point try of their own.  The conversion reduced the gap to just three points at 32-35, but deep into injury time Ashton added his third penalty of the day increased the gap to 6 points.  With the home side kicking the ball away when given one final chance to attack an entertaining game ended with the visitors picking up the maximum five points and the home side two bonus points in defeat.

Next week Treorchy entertain Abercynon satisfied to have picked up their first away win, but with much still much to work on.

Treorchy 16 - 8 RGC1404

The Oval, 13 October 2012 (report by Carl Spiller)

Treorchy returned to winning ways last Saturday with a hard fought victory over North Wales representatives in Division One East, the previously undefeated Rygbi Gogledd Cymru (RGC) 1404.

Much has been made of the way in which the visitors have been positioned in Division One East and in particular the accompanying financial support from the union, but on a poor weekend for the Welsh regions in Europe, it is surely commendable that the union does its best to expand the game in Wales and tap into any fresh player reserves the country has to offer.  The players on show for RGC showed that there is clearly some ability there to be mined as the well drilled visitors started brightly and with purpose notching the first points of the match from the boot of Rhodri Carlton-Jones following a number of consecutive off sides from the retreating Zebras.

After another disappointing defeat away to rivals Mountain Ash last week, the home supporters were looking for an improved performance and it duly arrived as the Zebras were both committed and accurate in defence and attack and were rewarded with the opening try of the game as number eight Craig Everett barged over from short range following some good work amongst the forwards.  Full back Celyn Ashton made no mistake with the conversion and extended Treorchy's lead with a penalty on the half hour mark as the home side forced the visitors back into their own territory.

With five minutes remaining of the half RGC produced the moment of the match as centre Llywarch Ap Myrddin scored what must surely be one of the tries of the season as the visitors ran out of defence, making use of an overlap in midfield with Treorchy anticipating a kick from in the shadow's of their own posts.  Given the ball with some space, Myrddin showed enough pace and power to not only break into open field, but shrug off the covering tackles before arcing round the final defender to score near the corner.

The conversion was unfortunately missed by the visitors and on the stroke of half time Ashton added a second penalty as the half time whistle blew with Treorchy leading 13-8.

The second half become an enthralling arm wrestle as both sides competed for every inch of grass, with regular turn overs restricting any momentum being generated by either side, but it was the visitors who began to exert the territorial advantage, albeit without setting up camp in the Treorchy twenty two as Treorchy's defence held firm.

Treorchy are still awaiting the return from injury of a number of key players, but in Garyn Daniel and Ben Williams Treorchy had the two outstanding performers of the match.  Second row Williams excelled in the line out in addition to being prominent in loose play, while Daniel, shifting across the back row from eight to seven, produced an outstanding all action display at the ruck and with ball in hand.

With time running out, Ashton added a third penalty leaving the visitors requiring two scores, but two failed penalty attempts as the game went into injury time cost RGC any chance of the match and even a bonus point as the referee eventually blew for time with Treorchy winning a hard fought contest 16-8 to get their season back on track.

Next week Treorchy make the short trip to fellow mid-table club Merthyr looking to replicate the much improved performance.

Mountain Ash 23 - 18 Treorchy

Mountain Ash, 6 October 2012 (report by Carl Spiller)

Treorchy and Mountain Ash renewed their rivalry in a hard fought and ill tempered contest in Division One East last Saturday.

Both teams have experienced mixed results in the early stages of their respective league campaigns, with Treorchy still looking to find their best form while Mount have won just one game so far in what is proving to be a competitive division and the game showed both sides lack of form as errors were plentiful and the game dominated by scrum restarts.

Despite the errors, the match was compelling and it was the home side who opened the scoring at the second attempt as Mount outside half Matthew Parfitt slotted a penalty kick, but it was the Zebras who scored the first try as captain Jamie Summers powered over from close range following a half break from scrum half Gareth Fear from a scrum.  Mount responded with a second penalty, but Treorchy responded with a second try as Fear again made some ground from a scrum, this time offloading to wing Lloyd Williams who scored in the right corner.  The conversion was missed from the touchline but Treorchy took a healthy 12-6 lead into half time.

Those looking for less errors in the second half were disappointed, as errors again stopped either side from finding a rhythm, while the game become extremely difficult to referee as both sides also engaged in a series of personal off the ball punch ups as the game become an after thought for some players.

Despite the un-savouriness and after a well controlled first half performance from the Zebras, the game was lost in a five minute spell as Mount ran in two well worked tries despite ceding the majority of the territory in the half.  With space at a premium on such a narrow pitch, Mount superbly countered following a turn over, exploiting some mis-matches in wider channels to allow the converted score beneath the posts.  Treorchy responded with a penalty from Ashton to retake the lead 15-13, but suddenly the home side looked threatening and after a break apiece from Mount's half backs, Treorchy were beneath their posts for the second time as Mount scrum half Ross Davies followed Gareth Fear's lead to attack from the base of a scrum, only this time he was able to complete the score himself.  The try was converted to push the home side into a 20-15 lead as the game headed into the final quarter.

Treorchy had a clear edge in the scrums for the second week running, but failed to gain any advantage as the referee ignored the home side's standing up in the scrum but with penalties being awarded on each rare occasion that the home side won the 'hit' at the scrum.  However, it was the home side's well drilled and disciplined defensive line, making use of the narrower confines of the pitch, which was the crucial factor as Treorchy's attacking options were stifled.

Fear nearly scored a try in the right hand corner following a hack ahead from another retreating Mount scrum, but was excellently tackled into touch just short and with the game ticking into injury time, Ashton slotted over a penalty from half way to reduce the arrears to just five points.  But in the five minutes of added time the Zebras were unable to make their second half territory count and slipped to another disappointing defeat, albeit with a losing bonus point.

Next week Treorchy entertain high flying North Wales new boys RGC 1404 at the Oval in what promises to be another tight contest.

Treorchy 31 - 27 Penallta

The Oval, 29 September 2012 (report by Carl Spiller)

Treorchy recorded a hard fought home win over Division One East's table topping Penallta last Saturday as the two teams shared eight tries in an entertaining clash.

Penallta opening matched the bright conditions as they opened the scoring as some poor defending allowed the visitors to stroll over for a try after picking up from the base of a scrum on the twenty two. Treorchy levelled the scores as full back Jordan Lloyd expoited the space on the right flank following a break up the left.

Penallta re-took the lead as Treorchy were again guilty of switching off as a front peel move saw the try in the left hand corner.

A frantic first quarter saw Treorchy register their second try as wing Peter Hutchings produced an excellent angle to burst through the defensive line from an inside pass by outside half Celyn Ashton following more joy down the left hand wing.

Playing into a significant breeze Treorchy would have been delighted to have been leading by two points heading into half time but some poor decision making gifted the visitors the ball on too many occasions which invariably resulted in a 50 metre punt with the breeze and any initiative lost.  A minute after a mismatch was ignored in midfield in favour of a chip to the corner the resulting clearance kick forced Jordan Lloyd deep into his own half and an athletic charge down saw the home side lined up beneath their own posts for the third time in the match.

Eight points in arrears at half time was still acceptable given the wind but the visitors again capitalised on Treorchy inaccuracy as an interception just outside their own twenty two resulted in a bonus point try for Penallta and a 13 point lead with half an hour to play.

With the front row of Jack Dunning, Robert Jones and Simon Collins (and later Ben Uphill), Treorchy had a distinct advantage at scrum time and a penalty at a scrum on half way was kicked to the touch and a second penalty almost immediately was kicked to the corner rather than taking the points on offer and the decision was vindicated as the subsequent rolling maul was stopped illegally by the visitors forcing the referee to award a penalty try.

Treorchy now began to dominate territory, but some excellent scramble defence was keeping the home side at bay despite lively performances from new centre partnership Cory Dunn and Chris Jenkins.  Outside half Celyn Ashton reduced the arrears to just three points with fifteen minutes remaining before the wining score duly arrived five minutes later.  All afternoon Treorchy had been able to generate midfield mismatches in defence which they had failed to exploit, so it was a surprise that the winning try should come from first phase as a scrum in centre field just inside the visitors half saw centre Dunn score as a nice drift from Lloyd Williams was enough to put wing/scrum half in clear space before drawing the full back to allow Dunn in for the score.

From the restart Penallta were reduced to fourteen men as a reckless tackle on flanker Dan Thorne while he was gathering the kick off in the air saw a red card and Penallta forced to play out the final ten minutes a man light.

With the game seemingly lost, Penallta underlined their credentials with a gutsy fight back which belied their man disadvantage spending the final five minutes attacking the Treorchy line via their effective rolling maul.  The series of attacks cost Treorchy their captain Jamie Summers for offside at a maul, but with parity restored, the home side were able to repel the Pitmen to record their second victory of the season.

After two disappointing performances, the much needed win will be a boost to the Zebras, particularly with so many players still yet to make an appearance this season, but the win shouldn't mask the manner in which the visitors were able to score their four tries.  Next week Treorchy travel to rival Mountain Ash in what is always a tough and competitive fixture.

Ystrad Rhondda 31 - 3 Treorchy

Gelligaled Park, 22 September 2012 (report by Carl Spiller)

Treorchy crashed to a comprehensive defeat away to Ystrad Rhondda last Saturday in the big Division One East local derby.

In front of a sizeable crowd enjoying the late September sunshine, the first half was a decidedly scrappy and stop-start affair as both sides made continued errors in addition to some fussy officiating.  Both sides missed penalty opportunities to open the scoring, but it took until just five minutes before the break for the deadlock to be broken as Ystrad scored a try courtesy of outside half Rhys Truelove following some excellent handling between backs and forwards.  Treorchy responded with a penalty from the boot of outside half Celyn Ashton as the teams went into half time with the score 7-3 in a competitive, but otherwise forgettable half of rugby.

The second half continued in the same vain as the forward exchanges continued to be highly competitive, but errors and the whistle hampered the spectacle.  As the game edged frustratingly into the final quarter it was Ystrad full back David Gratton who was once again Treorchy's nemesis as he punished a poor kick chase from the visitors, managing to slip off a number of weak first up tackles before finally being tackled just short of the try line.  Before going to ground, he had the awareness to offload to lively centre Bleddyn Davies who crossed for the try.  The try was converted to open the lead out to 14-3 with fifteen minutes remaining.

Treorchy responded and with replacement scrum half Lloyd Williams beginning to find some joy around the ruck the visitors were one pass away from registering a try of their own, but it was Ystrad who exploited the weary legs killing the game off with a couple of fine individual tries in the final ten minutes.  The first from that man again Gratton who had enough pace to glide through a gap with an outside arc from a first phase set move and to conclude the scoring, right wing Alex Webber scored a scintillating individual try with what must have been his first touch of the ball in the match.  Nothing looked on as Webber collected a somewhat hopeful long pass.  Faced with two defenders, he showed remarkable pace to get outside the Zebra defence before memorably standing up the final defender to score beneath the posts to secure the bonus points for the home side.

The game finished 31-3 as Ystrad recorded another emphatic home victory over the Zebras who will look to get their season back on track when they play promoted Penallta at home next weekend.

Treorchy 9 - 17 Rumney

The Oval, 15 September 2012 (report by Carl Spiller)

Treorchy slipped to their first defeat of the season in disappointing fashion last Saturday to a committed Rumney outfit at the Oval.

Playing with the slight wind in the first half Rumney were able to control the territorial contest, frequently pinning Treorchy back into their own twenty two for long spells.  Treorchy, however, looked the more threatening, gaining some success when giving the ball some width and two attacks up the left touchline almost resulted in scores only for the attacks to fizzle out near the line.

At 3-3 each, courtesy of a penalty apiece, it was Rumney who collected the first try of the match as the game edged towards half time.  Despite a highly competitive tackle area both sides of the ball, Rumney were able to make yards with ball in hand utilising their direct ball carriers in midfield and some neat offloads almost saw them cross the line but for a knock on near the try line.  Playing advantage for an earlier offence, the visitors quickly taken tap caught the lethargic Treorchy defence napping and wing Solomon Matthews cantered over virtually untouched on the right wing.  The conversion was added and on the cusp of halftime Treorchy responded with a second penalty to reduce the arrears to a respectable 6-10 given the wind disadvantage.

The second half was a more even affair, but low on attacking chances as the game was condensed between the two twenty two's with errors stopping either side from gaining a clear ascendency in the match, with the set piece a constant source of frustration for spectators as possession was exchanged.  With time running out, Treorchy outside half Celyn Ashton slotted his third penalty - an excellent kick from the halfway line - to reduce the arrears to a single point.  In desperation Treorchy began to again look threatening and with more accuracy might have pulled of the win as they exposed the visitors defence in the wider channels, but it would have been an underserved victory and deep into injury time Rumney secured the points and denied Treorchy a losing bonus point by scoring a well worked try following some good interplay in the backs to complete the scoring 17-9.

Next week Treorchy will look to bounce back from this disappointment when they make the short trip to local rivals Ystrad Rhondda in what is always a competitive fixture

Treorchy 30 - 20 Gilfach Goch

The Oval, 8 September 2012 (report by Howard Lazarus)

Treorchy Captain Jamie Summers celebrated his 200th league appearance with a hard fought win over Gilfach Goch by 30 points to 20 at the Oval.  As always, Summers was at the forefront of the Treorchy pack’s efforts against the juggernaut Gilfach eight with eighteen year old Garyn Daniel, at the other end of the spectrum, also a shining light.  Dan Owen, son of former Aberavon lock Adrian, was also prominent on his debut.

Ian Davies, the Gilfach full back, opened the scoring with an early penalty, when Treorchy’s chasing outside backs were adjudged in front of a clearance kick and worse was to follow as Treorchy tight head was red carded in midfield for an alleged retaliatory head butt on 5 minutes.

Treorchy’s plan to play an expansive game with two open side flankers, Daniel and Ben Hughes, winning the battle on the floor resulted in numerous penalties for offside and handling at the ruck. The accurate boot of outside half Celyn Ashton made Gilfach pay as Treorchy took control and with only minutes left in the first half led 18 – 3 despite being a man short.

When the referee penalised Treorchy scrum half Steffan Jones for feeding at a defensive scrum, Gilfach took advantage of one of their rare attacking opportunities as outside half Gareth Walters strolled over beneath the posts to make the half time score 18 – 10.

An early second half penalty for Gilfach for handling on the floor allowed Davies to reduce the defecit to 18 points to 13 and this could have been reduced further when outside centre Trystan Lazarus was ruled offside but the penalty was missed from in front of the posts.

With Treorchy running from deep a sweeping move involving Ashton and Lazarus put full back Jordan Lloyd in space and his perfectly timed pass released right wing Gareth Fear and he finished brilliantly for his third try of the season. Ashton converted from the touchline.

When Lazarus broke from his own 22 it looked as if he would go all the way before being caught by the Gilfach wing, Fear was on hand to continue the move and with the Gilfach defence scrambling, flankers Daniel and Hughes had an input before Lazarus swooped on the loose ball diving over from a metre out. With the conversion missed Treorchy looked safe at 30 – 13 with 20 minutes remaining.

When the excellent Walters chipped and chased for his second try with 10 minutes remaining thoughts turned to last week when Treorchy had thrown away a twelve point lead against Heol Y Cyw in the last 5 minutes to draw the game. This time the 14 men saw out the game, with Jack Dunning being held up over the line with the final move of the match, to leave Treorchy unbeaten going in to the third match of the season at home to Rumney on Saturday.
