Chloe Smith and Amerley Ruck led the way with two tries apiece to guide the Blues to a comfortable 51-0 victory over the Dragons in the WRU Regional Girls Under 18 competition at Caerphilly this afternoon.

The Blues had the ideal start to their campaign when Stephanie Cooper dotted down inside two minutes against the shell shocked Dragons. The Dragons received the kick-off but the alert Coope took the ball on a long arching run down the blindside, beating several players on her way and finally dotting down near the posts.
A few minutes later saw Blues speedster Chloe Smith weave in and out of the Dragons defence to score a try in the far corner. The Dragons showed intent when running ball, but they were never a serious concern for the Blues backs.
With the Blues dominating the game and surpassing the 50 point mark, referee Julian Smith blew the final whistle after only 32 minutes of play.
A delighted Blues team manager Alan Roberts, said: "The coaches were impressed with the talent on the field today. Although a short game, we can see a great side in the making, and look forward to playing Gogledd Cymru next Sunday at Gwernyfed (Kick-off 2.30pm)
