Bryncoch Home 2016



Taibach R.F.C.’s “Year of the Roar” (#YOTR), which is driven by sponsor and ex player Simon Pridham, had a great start to the season with a 23-13 victory at The Plough, against visiting Bryncoch, scoring three tries in the process. The “Tigers” took an early lead with outside half Phil Taylor kicking a penalty, and then Bryncoch levelled the score when outside half Gavin Jones kicked a penalty. A further two penalties followed in the first fifteen minutes, one apiece from Taylor then Jones to make the score 6-6. With half time minutes away, Taibach took play into the visitors twenty two and from a five metre scrum, Rhys Corcoran picked up and drove to the line to score a try.                                                                                The Taibach pressure continued from the start of the second half and after ten minutes came a second try when flanker Mike Kelly picked up from a scrum in the Bryncoch twenty two and made a break across field, eluding would be tacklers, then he gave a pass to wing Richard Lewis who ran in to touchdown for the try, outside half Phil Taylor converting for a 18-6 lead. A third try came, once again from a scrum with Ryan Price picked up and brushed away defenders to score the try. With play in injury time, Bryncoch eventually broke into the Taibach half and were rewarded when scrum half Jay Phillips touched down for a try, converted by Gavin Jones, with Taibach victors by 23-13.
