THE brilliant Blues are on the march in a national knockout competition.
Ruthin continued their good form with a comfortable home win against Division One (North) rivals Dolgellau in the SWALEC Plate.
The Cae Ddol hosts started well with a try by wing Josh Wilson, which was converted by full back Callum Bennett.
As with previous games against Dolgellau, play was open with the game moving quickly between the respective halves of the pitch.
The visitors were on the scoreboard courtesy of a penalty from Gerwyn Thomas, but the Blues responded with good phase play leading to wing Kyle Davies going over for a try.
Bennett widened the gap between the sides further with a penalty goal, but the visitors narrowed it again with another penalty goal.
However, the last score of the half belonged to Ruthin when flanker Lee Pope offloaded to hooker Harry Higgins for a further try, which Bennett again converted.
The teams went in at the break with Ruthin comfortably 22-6 ahead.
Dolgellau came out strongly after the break and within the first five minutes, Huw Emyr jigged past the Ruthin defence to score a try.
The Blues upped their game and although the visitors were still providing stiff competition, the home side went further ahead with a try by Bennett, which he successfully converted himself.
Ruthin began to dominate the match, snuffing out any Dolgellau attacks with excellent defence and taking the try-scoring opportunities when they came.
Second row Chris Davies - the Ruthin man of the match - broke through the visitors’ defence and offloaded to Pope for a try converted by Bennett.
Then, after further good phase play, replacement fly half Ben Syme put scrum half Wil Morecambe through for the final try of the game which Bennett converted.
