All square against Glais

After playing attractive rugby and leading 29-14 at the break, the 1st XV had to settle for a draw at home to Glais. Early scores for Tom Griffiths, Dom Jones and Nathan Murphy with Tom Griffiths converting one, saw the blacks charge in to a healthy lead early on. Glais hit back with a push over try which they converted, before Ieuan Brew snatched a try out wide on his debut for the firsts. Glais again hit back before Dom Jones bagged a brace just before half time. Tom Griffiths converted. Indiscipline cost the Athletic dearly, with first Dom Jones then Matty Hindle dispatched to the sidelines for 10 minutes after being judged to be in at the side 5 metres out. Glais took full advantage, scoing two converted tries to narrow the score to 29-28. Tom Griffiths completed his brace 5 minutes from time, but unfortunately the Athletic were unable to keep Glais out and conceeded in injury time. A greatly improved performance for the blacks, earning themselves their firsts point and lifting them off the bottom of the table. Next week they travel to Pontrhydyfen in a rearranged WRU Bowl fixture, hoping toi go one step further to success.
