RHAYADER returned to form with a thumping 44-5 win at Girling in division three east D of the Swalec League.

South African star Andre Potgieter was joined by Jordan Phillips in leading the Rams to glory with two tries each while Ryan Davies and Gareth Dodd also crossed the whitewash with the latter also enjoying a successful day with the boot as Rhayader got their title bid on track.

Meanwhile Llandrindod Wells claimed 19-19 draw against Cardiff International in division three east C

No8 Geraint Evans crossed for a pushover try to give the Budgies the lead before pattern of the game changed after the referee called for uncontested scrums.

Llandrindod increased their lead with tries from Josh Hammond and Jamie Price, both converted by Ash Hammond before the Budgies were dealt a major blow when Evans was forced off through injury.

With Llandrindod having used their replacements the visitors saw out the game with 14 men as CIACS hit back to level with three tries.
