NEWTOWN overcame testing conditions and a spirited Ruthin to seal a 27-5 win and a place in the final of the RGC U16s Cup.

More than 130 people turned out for the eagerly anticipated clash and played their part in cheering on the hosts who led early through a try from full back Callum Pratten

Newtown never looked back and extended their lead through tight head prop Rhys Jones before the break.

From the restart Newtown again found themselves attacking the Ruthin line and industrious loose head Niall Bentley picked up the ball and dived over a mass of Ruthin players to score a third try.

Newtown’s fourth try was one to be remembered with Tommy Parry passing to wing Morgan Lewis who raced 60 metres to cross for a try which he also converted.

Ruthin reduced the arrears with a try and enjoyed a good spell of pressure but Newtown weathered the storm and were back in the ascendancy with the back row making a series of strong tackles to gain territory.

The hosts had the final say with crisp passing among the back row releasing Lewis who raced 60 metres to cross for a second try of the afternoon.
