A Divine Wind

Brynithel RFC entertained Crumlin RFC on a very wet and windy spring afternoon at the Brynithel Rec.  Brynithel, playing with the elements opened up the scoring on 20min with a penalty from Ashley Parfitt. Crumlin responded well with a well taken converted try on 25th min, and Ashley Parfitt kicked a 45metre penalty 5minutes later to close the gap. The half time score Brynithel 6: 7 Crumlin.

During the half time break, the heavens opened, and what had been difficult conditions worsened. However a very strange thing happened as the wind changed direction in the second half which came to the aid of Brynithel.

With about 55min gone Brynithel went into the lead again with a well taken kick from Ashley Parfitt giving Brynithel a slender 9 - 7 lead. With their tails up and the wind behind them Brynithel scored two tries.  Firstly Leighton Jones was gifted a try with an error from Crumlin and slid in to make it 14-7.   Secondly a great drive from the Brynithel 8 from their own 10 yard line to Crumlin's 22 led to Gavin Hayes sliding over, and Ashley Parfitt converting to make it 21-7.  

Crumlin did manage to pinch a bonus point right at the end of the game but it was a good victory for Brynithel, who worked well in all areas of the game.  

Final score Brynithel 21:14 Crumlin.
