DERBY delight belonged to the lads from Ruthin on Saturday.

The Blues came from behind to see off Dinbych and climb up to second spot in the WRU League Division One (North) rankings.

Dinbych withstood some early pressure from Ruthin and after five minutes, they got the first score on the board.

Winger Aidyn Jones collected the ball from a kick upfield, raced along the touchline and crossed in the corner.

The visitors responded and within a further five minutes, after pressure from the pack, flanker Matt Roberts evened up the score with an unconverted try.

Ruthin had to defend against the home side in their own 22, but they cleared their lines and after a lineout in Dinbych’s half, the Blues went ahead.

Centre Harri Morgan broke through the home defence for a try that was converted by full back Nathan Jones.

Determined Dinbych scored again almost immediately when Aidyn Jones intercepted and almost identically to his first try, he sped along the wing and scored an unconverted try in the corner.

Ruthin were 12-10 ahead, but Dinbych were providing stiff opposition and they were defending well against the visitors’ attempts to widen the gap.

Eventually, Ruthin’s pack drove over Dinbych’s line and Matt Roberts scored his second try.

The game was played out in midfield for a while as both sides tried to gain the ascendancy.

Then, after a searing run by wing Josh Wilson was only stopped by a Dinbych tackler pushing him into touch on their 22, Ruthin were able to pile on the pressure.

Finally, the ball was passed to full back Dyfan Humphreys, who got the Blues' bonus point try two minutes before half-time.

Although Rhuthun were 22-10 ahead as the second half started, Dinbych were tough competitors and the game was by no means won.

For the first 20 minutes of the half, defences were in the ascendancy and there was no further score.

Dinbych missed a chance to narrow the gap when a penalty attempt went wide and it wasn’t until the Ruthin pack drove from a lineout in their own half and Morgan opened up the Dinbych defence that hooker Owain Jones was able to score between the posts.

Nathan Jones converted.

The final try came after 66 minutes when Morgan again ran at the Dinbych defence, releasing Nathan Jones to go over the whitewash.

Although Dinbych returned to the attack in the final 10 minutes, the Blues' defence held.
