WHILE things are going well in the league, there was no weekend cup joy for Ruthin.

The Blues are undefeated in WRU League Division One (North) this season, however they lost out 22-5 in their home Division One Cup encounter with COBRA.

There was better fortune for Ruthin Youth, who claimed a 24-21 success versus Colwyn Bay.

Meanwhile, there was no away day joy for RGC to celebrate in the Welsh Premiership.

Seeking their second success of the campaign, Ceri Jones' charges were second best as they were beaten 36-12 at Llandovery.

Jones told the RGC website: “It’s an extremely hard place to come, and it's even harder when your performance levels are not good enough.

"We didn’t have the urgency in the kick chase, or coming off the line and as result we found ourselves way behind on the scoreboard after 20 minutes.

"They played to (the) conditions with a strong wind and pinned us back well with the kicks.

"Second half we were better and that could be seen in the two tries but realistically we can’t come here to a top-four side and expect anything with those levels.

"Our standards need to the higher if we want to be anywhere near the top-four."

Llandovery were on the front foot from the off, spearheaded by tries from Will Caron-Lewis and Lee Rees, one of which was converted by Jack Maynard.

Jamie Hughes grabbed the next home try, with Maynard adding the extras, and Llandovery had a bonus point following Aaron Warren's try.

Jordan Scott, on his 100th RGC appearance, played his part as the visitors made a bright start to the second half.

He set up Daf Williams to cross in the corner for his side's first try.

After Joe Powell scored for the hosts, RGC did bag a second try.

The pack drove to the line and Harri Evans collected the pass to dart in.

Dion Jones added the extras.
