A great build to the local derby game resulted in well over 100 spectators on Boxing Day.
Rhayader looked the bigger squad by far… The visitors started well and soon took control with good moves which saw them drive over for their first score making it 0 - 7. It was soon 0 - 12 following just 20 minutes of play, but our boys found their way back into the game. Tom Powell soon scored a try, narrowing the visitors’ lead to 7 - 12. Rhayader quickly hit back in this fast paced game with yet another try making it 7 - 17, but a Seb Barrett try made it 14 - 17 at half time.
After the break, Trefy started well and changed their tactics by bringing the backs into the game. Points soon appeared in the home side’s favour thanks to two tries by Tom Powell and Henry Leech. The match finished 28 - 17 to Trefy and was by far one of the most entertaining games this season, as well as the best supported!
