COBRA overcame a previously unbeaten Wrexham 20-14 to maintain their bright start to the North Wales League Two season.

The men from Meifod used the strong wind to their advantage to establish an early lead through the boot of fly half Will Worthington who kicked two penalties.

COBRA extended their lead midway through the half with their front row trio of Nico Williams, Bryn Edwards and Hywel Jones showing their strength from a five metre scrum for Jack Jukes to cross for a try which Worthington converted.

Just before the break second row Rhodri Evans fed Chris Morris to surge through before offloading to Jukes for his second try of the day with Worthington adding the extras.

The home side had the elements in their favour after the break and reduced the arrears with two converted tries but COBRA held out to celebrate a hard fought victory.

Meanwhile an ever improving Welshpool pushed Dolgellau to the limit before succumbing 24-21 at Cae Marian.

The home side led inside the opening 10 minutes with wing Jack Hinge crossing the whitewash.

However Pool enjoyed plenty of possession and took a surprise lead when prop Brian Jenkins released hooker Ally Evans to cross for a try which Tom Williams converted.

Dolgellau were stung into action and regained the lead with Hinge crossing for his second try with centre Henri Roberts converting.

Dolgellau added to their tally just before the break with No8 Iwan Pugh drive from a scrum before offloading to prop Dewi Pugh to cross the line from close range.

Welshpool hit the ground running after the break with centre Harry Davies breaking to release flanker Tom Davies to cross with Williams’ conversion closing the deficit to three points.

Dolgellau steadied their nerves with an outstanding individual try from Roberts who added the conversion before Pool set-up a tense finale with a try from flanker Joe Stranks, converted by Williams.

Newtown set the pace at the top of the table following a 20-10 win at Bangor.

Torrential rain and gale force winds failed to dampen Newtown with a dominant opening culminating in a try from Twm Jones before the hosts hit back with a try of their own.

Newtown regained the lead following a break from outside half Nat Jenkins to release Jones for his second try with Gaz Williams adding the extras.

Both sides struggled in worsening conditions after the break with Newtown eventually adding to their tally with an unconverted try from Tom Andrews before the hosts replied with a try of their own.

Newtown ensured victory in the closing moments with a penalty from Williams to extend their excellent early season form.
