Llan Tag along


Rugby correspondent


WINGERS Anthony “Tag” Evans and Ben Vale were in great form as Llangollen maintained their Division Three (North) promotion push in impressive fashion.

It’s a three-horse race to secure promotion to Division Two (North), with Shotton Steel, Rhos and Llangollen all eager to make the step up.

With Shotton the odds-on title favourites, Llan continued to hunt down second place with a fine 97-7 win away at fallen North Wales giants Bangor.

With the Tower Field squad being ravaged due to injury and a lack of availability, Llan only travelled with the bare XV, but those players showed the spirit that has seen Llangollen side recover brilliantly from their recent defeat at Welshpool.

Anthony “Tag” Evans bagged four tries and Ben Vale crossed for a hat-trick, while full back Tom Jones, assistant coach John Roberts and number eight Mike Jones all grabbed a brace. Centre Mark Price, outside half Roger Chadwick, second row Wayne Reese and prop Arran Davies also crossed the line as Llan sent a major message to their promotion rivals by notching up a magnificent 17 tries.
