RUGBY. FflRNDALE 8pts., MAESTEG 3. The. Llynvi Valley boys encountered the Ferndalians in a Glamorgan League fix-bure on the Darran Grounds on Satur- day Last. This was the second meeting of the "beams this season, Maesteg being the winners on the first occasion by 12 points to nil. The home team were with- out Harry Davies (forward), who is laid up, whilst the three-quarter line had to undergo an alteration. Dai Lewis started operations for the homesters. From the line out in Maes- teg's territory, the home forwards began to press, and soon forced a minor. On the restart, the visitors took play to mid- field, where it remained for some time. One of tlic- Llyijvi forwards went away in grand fashion from the line out, ana was within an ace of scoring, but was finely pulled tip by W. J. James, the home cus- todian. From a scrum in the home 25, the forwards got away smartly, and Rogyn Jones securing on the halfway line, nearly got, in on his own. Two free kicks wore awarded Maesteg in succes- sion, but to no advantage. After some pretty play by the homesters, they were awarded & fix, kick. and Danny Owen's kick for goal went wide. W. E. John, however, came along and caught all his opponents napping, scoring a beautiful try, amidst cheering. The same player had nv difficulty in adding the extra points. III he second half, Freddie Biddis- fcombe, receiving from his forwards, gave Billy Davies a "lightning" pass, and tho latter opened up the game in real Welsh style. D. O. John transferred to D. Daries' (Cocdwr), who romped over with » splendid unconverted try in the right corner. On the resumption, Maes- teg seemed to have the better hand, and were gaining much ground. A free- kick was given the homesters, but' Danny Owen's attempt for goal fell short. The Llyni boys still kept up the attack.- A few minutes later saw the ball being fumbled 8Y every one of the homesters, and Tommy Williams following up, gathered smartly and crossed with an un- converted trv. Maesteg were still striving to add to their score, but could not pierce the sound defence of the rern- daliane. TRBQROHY llpts., BARGOED 5. This interesting Glamorgan League fix- ture was played at Bargoed. Taking the game in its entirety, the League cham- piona' victory was well deserved, as they were the cleverer team. In the first half, a smart movement resulted in D. W. Jones scoring for Tre- orchy. T. O. Jones and his brother, D. W. Jones, exhibited some fine inter- passing, and Hay ward romped over with a try for Ba.rgoed, which a good kick from Yallis converted. During the final stages, the Rhondda men showed their superiority, and Dan Lewis (Bwlch) and Dai T asughan secured tries. Daly James, who was, as usual, faultless at back, nego- tiated one of the tries. For the home- sters, Ned Bees, Evans, Ridge and Watts were the best, while T. O. Jones, L. Lewis, D. W. Jones and Vaughan were prominent for Treorchy. TRHHHRBERT 3pts., RHONDDA LEAGUE 3. A team of picked players representing the Rhondda Senior League played a matok against Treherbert on the latter's ground on Saturday. The League fielded a strong and efficient organisation, whereas the Treherbert side suffered from absentees, particularly among the backs. P.S. Owen kicked off for the home- sterfi against a strong wind, and Thomas (centra) replied with a kick to touch well inside 4she Treherbert half. The League forwards broke away with a good rush from the line out, the Premiers conceding a minor. On resuming, the League re- turned to the attack, W. Jones (full- back) making a futile attempt to land a penalty goal. After a loose Torward rush, Treherbert reached halfway, but were soon repelled, and from a mark by Emryg Davies, W. Jones succeeded in scoring m beautiful drop goal. Play was fairly even for the remainder of the half. A. Morgan restarted for the League, and Treherbert gained an attacking posi- tion for a short time through faulty kicking by some of the League players. After getting back inside the Treherbert half, Tom Lewis (forward) broke away with a dribble from a line out, a try almost resulting. W. Lewis (outside half) •ross-kicked, and W. Morris (centre) getting down to the ball, dribbled over the League's line, for Sam Lewis to score a try. which W. Colwill (the Treherbert custodian) faied to convert. The light was now failing fast and the game became uninteresting. Pearce and Hopkins led a good rush for the League, which trans- ferred play to the Treherbert line but 110 score resulted. W. Lewis kicked far down the field, and following up smartly, had hard luck in failing to touch down whem over the line. Treherbert had the better of the game from now on. PBNYGRAIG RES. 12pts PENYR- HNGLYN ALL WHITES 0. A very small crowd witnessed the League match between the above teams on the Treherbert Athletic Grounds on Monday. The visitors early demonstrated their superiority. They played good football, and by a splendid combined movement registered a' try against their opponents in the initial half. This was not con- verted. After the interval, there was only one team in the game. Penygraig now had their opponents well beaten. The visit- ing team indulged in frequent passing bouts which were delightful to witness, and which added three more unconverted tries to their score. Penygraig also secured a goal from a penalty.
