Ebbw Vale and Llandovery both make it to the semi-finals of the WRU Premiership Cup with wins over Cardiff and Aberavon while Rotherham return to winning ways.

Scimitar had both Ebbw Vale and Llandovery competing in the WRU Premiership Cup quarter-finals last weekend. Ebbw Vale bounced back after dropping points in the Indigo Welsh Premiership against Aberavon the week prior. The Steelmen maintained their unbeaten run at the Ciner Glass Community Stadium as they beat Cardiff 27-15 despite a strong Cardiff performance.

While Ebbw Vale proceeded on to the quarters, Llandovery were facing Aberavon at Church Bank. Llandovery demonstrated yet another fine team performance as they demolished Aberavon in a commanding victory, beating them 53-3. The Drovers will face Aberavon in a repeat league fixture this weekend as they look to maintain their position at the top of the table, closely followed by Ebbw Vale. Ebbw Vale will also be in action as they are set to play Carmarthen Quins at the Ciner Glass Community Stadium on Saturday the 16th.

Next up, we head over to the National 2 North league on a wet and windy Saturday. Rotherham Titans faced Preston Grasshoppers in a must-win to keep their title hopes alive with only six points separating the two teams.

After the defeat at the Sycamores, the Titans needed to bounce back, with this in mind it was no surprise to see them come out strong. Rotherham’s Callum Bustin opened up their account for the day after just six minutes. Despite the early points, it was a frustrating first half for Rotherham after lots of quality chances were missed, lacking their usual clinical edge.

Rotherham learned from their mistakes in the first half as they came out for the second. Clinically, the Titans finished off the game by scoring a handful of second-half tries to secure the win and bonus point with the game finishing 34-7. This weekend the Titans will face Wharfedale at Clifton Lane on Saturday the sixteenth of December.

Over in the Regional 2 Midlands West league last weekend, Scimitar had both Hereford and Worcester in action. Hereford made it two wins on the bounce as they faced Berkswell & Balsall at home. Hereford commandingly won the game 30-10 as they took all the points. As the side grows in confidence, they will look to extend their winning run as they prepare to face Silhillians away from home on Saturday the 16th of December.

Elsewhere Worcester faced Malvern at home. It wasn’t meant to be for Worcester as they were beaten by four points with the game ending 16-20. Worcester now sit in eleventh place on only ten points. They do however have a good opportunity to earn some points this weekend as they will face bottom-of-the-table Berkswell & Balsall who are yet to win this campaign.

Worcester Women were also in action last weekend as they travelled to face Novocastrians Ladies. In a similar fashion to the men’s side, Worcester lost out on points after their victory against Bishop Auckland with the game finishing 46-12 to the home side. Worcester will have to dig deep this weekend as the ladies face top-of-the-table Sale FC 1861 Women on Saturday the 16th of December.

Barkers Butts extended their winning streak last week as they travelled to face Birmingham & Solihull in the Counties 2 Midlands West (East) division. The Barkers beat the mid-table side comfortably with a 7-21 score line at the final whistle. After eleven games this season, Barkers Butts are now at the top of the table with fifty points. Looking to the weekend Barkers Butts will face Coalville on Saturday the 16th of December. Elsewhere in the league this weekend, Woodrush will prepare to face Birmingham & Solihull as they hope to climb the table.

In the Counties 2 Surrey last week Chipstead were in action against fourth-place Old Caterhamians at home. It was another solid win for the team as they beat Old Caterhamians 35-22, extending their winning streak to five. Chipstead will have their sights set on the top of the table in their coming fixtures with only seven points separating them from the Old Rutlishians. This weekend they will return home to face Old Freemans on Saturday the 16th of December.

Over in the BUCS Super Rugby League last week, Swansea University faced a strong Cardiff Met side away from home. It simply wasn’t meant to be for Swansea as they were defeated 48-12. Ninth place Swansea will now look to climb the table in round eleven with them welcoming Hartpury on Wednesday the 13th of December.
