There were eight first teams out on the weekend competing across the English and Welsh rugby leagues in Scimitar kit with Llandovery set to play Cardiff on Thursday with a 7:30 kick-off time.

We start this weekend by going to the Welsh Premiership Cup with Pontypridd taking on Merthyr. It’s fair to say that the game wasn’t without its drama with both teams scoring in the first half. It was unfortunate for Ponty as Garyn Smith and captain Kristian Parker were both sent to the sin bin before halftime. Without the pair, it left Ponty vulnerable with Dan Wall scoring a try to put Merthyr ahead. There was more of the same in the second half with both teams picking up points, however Merthyr edged in front with a final score of Pontypridd 27 – 30 Merthyr. Ponty will now look forward as they face Neath on Saturday 30th September.

It was a good weekend for Ebbw Vale as they progressed to the last eight of the Welsh Premiership Cup. With the Steelmen facing an energetic Neath side at the Gnoll it was set to be a tough game. Ebbw Vale led by 21 points coming up towards halftime, however, Neath were not giving up yet as their captain Ryan Evans scored the home side’s first try of the game. With Neath closing the gap before half time the stage was set for a tense second half. Neath came at Ebbw Vale strong but the away side’s defence held them at bay, With Ebbw Vales’s eyes set on a victory they extended their lead to finish the game Neath 19 – 40, Ebbw Vale. Ebbw Vale will now change their attention to this weekend’s game at home against RGC.

Heading over to the National League 2 North, we saw Rotherham Titans take on Huddersfield at Clifton Lane. Rotherham managed to score a total of six tries compared to Huddersfield’s two in what was a fierce Yorkshire derby. Rotherham went on to win the match 43 – 15 making it four wins in a row. Rotherham is just one win away from making it a perfect month of wins with them facing Tynedale away on Saturday 30th September.

It was yet another Scimitar derby this weekend as Worcester RFC traveled to face Hereford at home in the Regional 2 Midlands West. Both sides demonstrated a strong performance, providing fans with an entertaining game of rugby. The home side edged in front of Worcester to take the win on the day with the game ending Hereford 41 – 29 Worcester RRC. Both teams are in action on the 30th of September as Worcester faces Silhillians at home and Hereford travel to face Cheltenham away.

Chipstead faced Old Freemans last weekend due to a walkover. Chipstead dominated the game, with the final result being Old Freemans 0 – 28 Chipstead. With 9 points in the Counties 2 Surrey division, Chipstead is currently 3rd on the leaderboard, just a point behind Old Blues and Old Caterhamians in 2nd and 1st.

After being narrowly beaten by Coalville the weekend before Barkers Butts meant business last weekend as they faced Walsall II at home. Barkers Butts made a statement by beating Walsall by 60 points without conceding. The win resulted in Barkers Butts moving to 3rd place in the Counties 2 Midlands West (East) division with only 3 points separating them from the top spot. Barkers Butts will travel to face Claverdon on the 30th Saturday.

Elsewhere in the Counties 2 Midlands West (East) Woodrush faced Coventry Welsh at home. Coventry Welsh edged ahead of Woodrush to take the points on the day despite Woodrush tallying up 10 points but unfortunately wasn’t enough with the game finishing Woodrush 10 – 16 Coventry Welsh. Woodrush will not look forwards to Saturday 30th September when they face Coalville away from home.
