On a cold clear afternoon it was good to see our friends from Tylorstown after a gap of a few years. The Tyrchs kicked off only to be immediately penalised for over eagerness in the tackle. The penalty was kicked into touch at the half way and The Tigers won the resulting lineout and ran the ball into midfield. Rhys Thomas stole the ball back and kicked the ball deep into the Tigers 22. The Tigers cleared the ball into touch under pressure from George Harris. The Tyrchs won the lineout only to be penalised for not throwing the ball in straight. At the resulting scrum the Tyrchs really pressured the Tigers causing them to pass the ball forward.

At the next scrum the Tyrchs were penalised and the Tigers took the penalty quickly but unfortunately passed the ball behind their winger into touch. The Tyrchs won the lineout but managed to knock the ball on. The Tigers won the scrum and ran the ball into midfield, winning a penalty.
