COLWYN Bay were unable to derail Rhyl and District’s impressive recent WRU National League Division Two North form as they fell to a 27-12 defeat on their travels.

The home side wasted no time in stamping their mark on proceedings as winger Che Hudson managed to cross the white wash after an extended spell of phases.

This was swiftly followed by a well-struck penalty from Richie Williams to extend their cushion, and things got even better immediately following the restart when the outstanding Reeve Wright dotted over for his first score of the afternoon.

Wright was a constant thorn in the visitors’ side, and he capped off another virtuoso display with his second score just before the break, but Rachel Taylor’s side did get themselves on the scoreboard with a try of their own with virtually the last action of the first period, which was converted.

After the interval saw the Bay dominate the early exchanges and they reduced the arrears once again with another try, but the Dragons weathered the storm and all-but sealed their victory when Damon Price surged over the line for the bonus point score. Williams added the extras to round off the scoring.

Taylor’s side now sit fourth-from bottom in the standings and 12 points ahead of the bottom two.
