01/09/18 Skewen vs Tondu: Match Report

On Saturday the 1st September Skewen RFC opened their Division West Central season by welcoming old rivals Tondu to Tennant Park. Previous encounters have always been a feast of good rugby with closely fought outcomes.

On a day perfect for rugby perfect rugby wasn’t to be.

Skewen took the lead with an early penalty by Anthony Busselli, but this was soon followed by a Tondu Try and conversion following some poor midfield defence. Within 10 minutes the score was Skewen 3 Tondu 7 and that’s where the scoring ended.

Despite a few opportunities to score from penalties very little constructive opportunities for any other scores occurred from either side.

Final Score Skewen 3 Tondu 10

Overall a disappointing team performance with little cohesion and direction. In the end the better of two poor sides won the game.
