Crickhowell RFC 26 Crumlin RFC 31

 

Crickhowell got off to  a bad start on Saturday when some missed tackles in their own 22 led to Crumlin scoring, and converting, the first try of the game. Indeed, the whole of the first half belonged to the visitors as their speedy backs and well-drilled forwards added a further brace of converted tries. Their second came from a turnover scrum and a quick break whilst the third came after a misplaced Crick pass was kicked ahead. There was a glimmer of hope before the break when Tom Keane made a break but a try-saving tackle from the Crumlin full-back thwarted his effort. Crick were trailing  by 21 points to nil at the break with, seemingly, a mountain to climb.

At the resumption of play, however, Crick regained their momentum with Lewis, Logan going over between the posts. Miitch Collacott was next to reduce the deficit to 7 points when, following good work by Keane, he used his strength to break through tackles. Keane converted both tries.

 

Crumlin however, were not to be deterred and, following good work by their backs, gained another 5 points. Followed not long afterwards by another unconverted try pushing the score to 14-31. The last ten minutes was a thrilling end to a good game as Crick scored another try from Tom Keane who drop-kicked the conversion and then Morgan Vaughan, who had only been on the pitch for less than two minutes, gathered the ball on the wing, cut inside and, like Collacott, before him, used his strength to power over the line. With time fast running out, Crick applied tremendous pressure in the Crumlin 22 and it became a nail-biting tussle but time eventually ran out for them, much to Crumlin’s relief. Crick did manage however to get 2 bonus points, one for 4 tries and another losing bonus. The club would like to thank match sponsors the Prawn Sandwich Brigade and ball sponsor Tony Bowkett.

 

With no game on the 21st, the next League fixture for Crick is 28th December when they are away to Beaufort RFC. Prior to that, however, the club is hosting a carol concert in the Clarence Hall with Abertillery Orpheus Male Voice Choir on the evening of the 21st and the traditional Boxing Day game for fun followed by a quiz and raffle over at the Horseshoe Inn, Llangattock.
