Only one match took place on Saturday and Bridgend gained their twelth win in 13 league outings as they pounded poor Llandovery by 48-9 at the Brewery Field.
After leading 22-9 at the interval with tries by skipper Mike Powell, Grant Epton and Anthony Carter, there was a lull until the final quarter when the floodgates burst as Epton again, Ryan Howells twice and replacement Chris Tossell went over for a 7-0 try-count.
Nearly 40 players were involved in the first Wales Under 18 training session of the season. WRU National Performance Manager Gethin Watts is excited at the potential shown by the group and expects the Regional Under 18 Championship to hone their skills even further.
The WRU officially unveiled the new pitch today in time for Wales to take on Australia in the first of the Dove Men Series autumn international matches this Saturday. Head Groundsman Lee Evans and colleague Craig Campbell reflect on the 15-week project and look ahead to a pitch perfect future at Millennium Stadium.
