Cowbridge Ladies put their training tips from Cardiff Blues fitness coach Trystan Bevan and former Welsh cap Jason Jones-Hughes, into practice and came away with a 17-5 victory at Kidwelly.
Under blazing sunshine Kidwelly started off strongly and attempted to bully the Cowbridge pack but in response the visitors lifted themselves to produce some great rugby.
The home team demonstrated tremendous handling skills, big hits and determination in their playing ability however Cowbridge's hard work paid off in the 28th minute when a well-worked drive resulted in scrum half, Suzy Guck, pushing over for the first try of the game.
A second try followed after some deft handwork from the Cowbridge backs brought play into the opposition's 22. Inspirational forward play by Jessica Dawkes, Gemma Harding and Hannah Hughes, saw fly half Anna Jenkins show great strength to force the ball over the line to give Cowbridge a 10-0 halftime lead.
The second half brought a bright 15 minutes for the home side when a try was scored by fly half Georgie Evans. However, Cowbridge showed true grit with some outstanding play from Delyth Powell and Emma Adams. A further try was produced from a break made by Alexis Walker, which was duly converted by Anna Jenkins.
Cowbridge captain Rebecca Porter was extremely pleased with the team's performance but said, "there is still plenty more hard work in order to prepare for the next game".
Cowbridge return to action on Sunday to take on Dolgellau at home, (KO 2.30pm).
