Here's a report and some photos from our cup game at Rodney Parade against Newport in 2008. Report and photos supplied by Hugh Smith.
Konica Minolta Cup Round 4
Jan 26 2008
Newport 59 Llanharan 17 (33-5)
We put together some decent phases of rugby at Rodney parade, and with more
sympathetic refereeing, could have made a closer score of it.
However, we were given a reminder of what we left behind in the Premiership
three years ago – pace and power allowing Newport to capitalise on every
breakdown to good effect, greatly assisted by a strong scrummage.
We were 33-5 down at half time, but can reflect with some satisfaction on
scoring three tries, Greg Jones, Gary Williams and Dorian Thomas touching
down, Gethin Worgan converting one.
