Cardiff RFC held a competitive training session at Glamorgan Wanderers last night that saw most of the squad have a run out in game conditions.
The session started with the forwards having lineouts and scrums against the Wanderers pack both offensive and defensive before two 20 minute sessions under normal game conditions took place. The starting XV for the first session was Lewys Montague, James Beal, Lloyd Chalke, Will Rees Hole, Oli Smyth, Gareth Thompson, Mike Hale, Ken Dowding, Ryan Spriggs, Rob Lewis, James Murphy, Chris Smith, Ben White, Tom Wilson, Reuben Tucker.
The Blue & Blacks spent most of the session in defensive mode and held the Wanderers at bay. When they did get the ball the spun it wide to try to create space. The one try came following a fantastic break by Lewys Montague. He fielded a kick through in his own half before showing great pace to beat most of the Wanderers defence. His chip through into the twenty-two was expertly picked up off the floor by James Beal who flicked it on to Ryan Spriggs who crossed in the corner.
The second period saw run outs for Joe Tomlinson, Gavin Nash, Fraser Young, Tom Madley, Cory Tucker, Luke Crocker, Gwion Jones, Rhodri Cole, Cameron Gibbon, Cody Rees and Llywarch Ap Myrddin.
Cardiff had most of the ball in the second session and worked their way up field through several phases. When it was time to strike Joe Tomlinson was on hand to go over for the sessions only try.
At the weekend the Blue & Blacks travel to Taunton for the first full game. Any supporters wishing to travel can book a seat on the supporters club coach by contacting Gareth Davies.
