RGC will seek to make it back-to-back home wins in the Premiership when they host next-to-bottom Ebbw Vale this Saturday.

The Gogs moved up to fifth spot last weekend with a 21-3 home success against Swansea at Stadiwm Zip World.

RGC had all possession and territory in the opening quarter with both Rhys Tudor and Tom Hughes proving good attacking options. Around the breakdown Efan Jones was looking to recycle the ball quickly and get the back-line moving.

Pressure was mounting on the Swansea line with a number of good scrums from RGC.  Tom Hughes and Tim Grey were both held up on the line before the referee awarded a penalty try, converted by Billy McBryde.

RGC will be disappointed they didn’t deal with the restart well, and Swansea were back in the game with a simple penalty.

But the hosts ended the half on a high after a quick tap penalty, and McBryde showed fast feet to run in under the posts.  The fly-half added the conversion to make it 14-3.

It was a bit of a scrum fest for much of the second half, but RGC were the ones coming out on top.

They also crossed the whitewash late in the game after the ball was switched wide and winger Rhys Tudor finished in the corner.  McBryde added the extras to make it 21-3.
