BUILTH Wells Rugby Club will use the disappointment of last season to galvanise their Admiral League Two West Central title bid.

The Bulls were second in the table with a game in hand on leaders Morriston with four points separating the sides when the league came to a grinding halt last season.

With clubs free to refuse to honour the fixture list due to the Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) decision to run leagues without promotion and relegation, the Bulls were left frustrated when Maesteg Celtic failed to make the trip to the Gro on April 23.

Coach Ben Duggan said: “We had a good season and had a great finish in the league even with the frustration of other teams refusing to complete the fixture list with us nailed on for the title.”

However the leagues will return to a competitive format next season and ensure clubs will have to honour fixtures or face points deductions.
