IT dozen get any better than this for the lads from Maes Gwyniad.

Bala continued their excellent run of form with an exciting 36-26 success during their home meeting with Gwynedd rivals Caernarfon.

This made it 12 WRU League Division One (North) wins for the season for Bala, who remain in the mix to potentially finish in the top-three.

Ruthin and Nant Conwy will have something to say about that, but a bonus point victory over Bethesda this weekend will mean there's still a chance for Bala to finish in third spot.

Although their league campaign will come to a halt on Saturday, there is still plenty for Bala to play for this season and they will be looking forward to a big clash versus old rivals Nant Conwy in the semi-finals of the North Wales Cup next month.

The two clubs will meet in the last-four on Saturday, April 13.

Turning back to last weekend and the scoreline was a little too close for comfort from the perspective of Bala.

"We slacked off a bit in the second half," said Bala chairman Tony Parry.

"They got it back to 29-26 with 12 minutes to go."

However, Bala made sure they stretched their impressive winning run by grabbing a converted try with just two minutes left to play, which denied Caernarfon a losing bonus point.

The home side's own bonus point was in the bag by the time the half-time whistle was blown.

In an ideal opening for Bala, captain Moi Dafydd led by example with the opening try of the afternoon in the first minute.

There were a brace of tries for winger Elgan Evans, while hooker Endaf Jones and prop Alwyn Dylan also crossed the whitewash.

The key final try was scored by Miall Roberts.

Argentinian Javier Pereyra marked his final appearance for Bala by kicking three conversions.

Pereyra is one of two Argentinian players to have played for the club over the last few months and they have been unbeaten in Bala colours.
