RUGBY. PONTYPRIDD 3pts., TREHERBERT 0. Treherbert were- home to Pontypridd in a Glamorgan League match on Saturday. The home team were prepared for a hard game, because Pontypridd have been showing great form of late. The visitors were niinus ]:C.'s Jones and Evans, and J. Thomas. Pontypridd, opened, and were soon on pri e( the attack, but Owen Williams saved finely. From a penalty. W. Thomas kicked a lovely goal for the visitors. Tre- herbert, by strong forward rushes, got down to their opponents' line, and exacted a minor, Edgar Davies (inside half) having hard Îine", in not scoring. Pontypridd replied with, a fine forward rush. Han- bury put in a lofty kick, and Owen Wil- liams, smartly fielding on the drop, broke away, but was pulled down a few yards from the Pontypridd line. Morris secured in the open, and made a tricky and pretty run, but kicked rather wildly, forcing Pontypridd to concede L minor. Half-time then arrived. P.S. Owen restarted for Treherbert, and a. long kick, by W. Thomas found touch near the home line. Culverwell broke away from a scrummage and punted over the opposing three-quarters, but CMwill saved in plucky style. The Pontypridd hacks then participated in a, bout of passing, but Rogers was finely tackled by Hanbury. Ifrom a penalty, W. Thomas nearly scored another goal for the visitors. The state of the ground was against a good display of football, and the game, in consequence, developed into loose rushes, at which both sides were about equal. The Pontypridd backs showed the better combination, but individually Morris (Treherbert) deserved great com- mendation. W. D. Jones (Treherbert) and Hawkins (Pontypridd) among the forwards were well up for their, respec- tive TREORCHY Opts., FERNDALE 0. This was a Glamorgan League encoun- ter and the first match between these teams this season. The visitors entered the field fresh from their victory over Treherbert. and strong hopes were enter- tained of besmearing the colours of the cupholders. The Ferndale mascot-a. bulldo-was on the field, and the mas- sive cup won by Treorchy in the knock- out competition last Monday against Penygraig was also fielded." The start witnessed Fern dale instantly •attacking, which the homesters withstood admirably. G. Evans misfielded, J^d one of the visiting forwards was within ail ace of scoring. Treorchy, however, retaliated splendidly, and rushing play to the visitors' line, Dai Vaughan scored an excellent try near the corner nag, but the kick for goal failed. After a. fine bout of passing the cupholders opened up the game, and T. O. Jones and Jack Lewis got as near as possible to the line, Daly James landed a goal from a place kick, the result of Ferndale being penalised. When., play was resumed, the game developed into a tumble between the forwards, the visitors holding their own in the continual rushes. Biddiscombe was placed in a good position for a drop goal. but failed. Monotonous scrums followed, neither side being able to make headway. Towards the end it was im- possible to distinguish the players, as it was completely dark. TREHERBERT EX-SCHOOLBOYS 0, < PENRHYS STARS 0. A League match, under the auspices of the Rhondda Old Boys' League, was played by the above teams at Tylorstown on Saturday. The weather was far from being favourable, but, happily, the rain Peiirhys started strongly against the wind, which was blowing with some violence. Treherbert attacked hotly, the backs shaping well, but were not served by the forwards over-often, Scrums were formed under the home goalposts and after breaking up, P. R. Raymond (for- ward) got over for Treherbert from a melee He was recalled by the referee, and another scrum was ordered. from this the ball was dribbled over the Pen- rhys line, and R. Pitman (outside half) dived for it and touched down, thus scoring a try under the posts. Howevei, in answer to Treherbert's appeal for a try, the referee awarded a minor! Trc- herbert still pressed until half-time. With the wind in their favour, Pen- rhys were expected to win, but a sur- prise wa.s in store for them. For most of the second moiety, nearly all the aggressive work was done, by the J^x- Schoolboys, the team as a whole display- ing fine stamina. They were the hettei side by far, and should have won liar the referee been better able to distin- guish between the colours of the jerseys of the respective teams. B. Abraham, 1. James T. Griffiths. W. Williams J. Evans' T• Davies, W. E- Pearce and P. Raymond did fine work for the Ex- Schoolboys.
