THE 2022 season will go down in the history of Builth Wells Rugby Club.

Just a few weeks after their youth team won the WRU Cup at the Principality Stadium the club returned to the capital on Sunday.

This time it was the turn of the club’s under 12s to take the limelight, beating Old Penarthians 15-7 to be crowned Cardiff Blues U12s Plate winners.

Rob Lloyds’ young Bulls played went into the break 5-0 ahead thanks to a try scored by Joshua Jones.

The young Bulls were camped on their own line holding the defence before the ball was swiftly stolen and Rhys Powell sprinted the length of the field for a try.

Powell added a second try with the south Walians reducing the arrears with a converted try but the day belonged to the Bulls.

Coach Rob Lloyd said: “The level of pride which these boys give me is unmeasurable.

“I can’t thank them enough from the bottom of my heart for the time effort an dedication throughout the season.

“For a team that’s only come together this season what they have achieved is amazing.”

Lloyd, a veteran of many cup adventures with the club’s senior team over the years, said the junior team’s triumph ranked alongside them all.

He said: “Ive had many special moments in my rugby career but winning the final at Cardiff Arms Park on Sunday with these boys is up there with the best of them.

“I can’t wait for next season as these lads are only gonna get better.”

Lloyd added: “It was great to see such overwhelming support from people of Builth yet again and a big thank you to everyone who came to support.”

The Bulls conveyor of junior talent will now enjoy a well-deserved summer break before grinding back into gear in September.
