DERBY bragging rights belong to the lads from Cae Ddol.

In a game that was a typical and scrappy derby, Ruthin 2nds stretched their unbeaten start with a 34-6 home success over a well organised Mold 2nds.

The game started with a penalty to Ruthin early on, allowing the home side to establish good field position five metres from the Mold line.

The resulting lineout allowed second row Eoin Kent to score Ruthin's first try.

With such an early score, Ruthin became confident, however the experienced Mold side were persistent in their efforts to make the game a good contest.

The teams swapped a couple of penalties apiece as poor discipline became a feature.

With the game in the balance, Ruthin's forwards were determined to take control of proceedings.

Set plays were consistently impressive and this platform gave Steff Parry the opportunity to score the second try.

He converted his own try to give the Blues a 15-3 lead at the interval.

Ruthin's forwards continued to dominate Mold in the second half, even when changes were made to the pack.

Again taking advantage of the forwards' strength, Steff Parry was able to throw an outrageous dummy to skip over for his second try.

Not to miss out on the fun, Tudur Parry capped off a great performance by scoring an excellent individual try.

Picking up from the base of the scrum, Parry outpaced the Mold back row and fended off the remaining defence to score in the corner.

The most popular try of the day was still to come.

John Mawr came on as a late substitute for captain Joe Mault and immediately made an impact.

With a pick and go from a well-placed ruck five metres out, he bulldozed over the line to the complete elation of his team mates, the management team and the home crowd.
