Ebbw Vale smash Pontypridd AGAIN

Post by mikey_dragon on Sun 15 May 2016, 5:05 pm

38-12 to the new champions Ebbw Vale. Great to see a new champ and even better that it's a Gwent club. Ebbw are certainly a team to be admired having come up from division 1 not so long ago. Now let's congratulate Ebbw and laugh at Ponty and their fans, the worst bunch in world rugby.

And a shout out to Bedford, who must still be at Sardis Road living it up with his fellow fans. I'm sinking a desperado for you right now pal.

Yeah I did hear. There's been a bit of crying over that, but it's the way it is. Great news that North Wales have a team in the premiership.

What was the tweet about? I retweeted loads yesterday but I'll see if I can work it out.

As for the result, wasn't it marvellous?

Something along the lines of "unlucky ponty, you're nothing without Cardiff Blues academy players, etc." It was a WUM, nobody bit though Sad.

Yes it was a great result for Welsh rugby as well as Ebbw as far as I'm concerned. Ponty will certainly lose their dominance over this competition for the next few years whilst the Gwent clubs should get stronger. I also believe Cardiff and Merthyr RFC will get stronger as the regions' resources will be focused here.

Ah, I'll have a look.

It will be interesting to see how it pans out in the future. Pontypridd have signed older players like Wayne Evans, Dicomidis and (I think) Darren Waters. They seem happy to fill up with 25+ year olds who want some pocket money for playing rugby after their pro careers have finished. That's a fine strategy if those players stay fit.

I watched the game yesterday and thought that Geraint Walsh looked a good player at that level. And then I remembered him when he stepped up to the pro game and there can be no better (well, maybe Dicomidis) example of the enormous (and growing) gulf between the two standards.

I think that Merthyr are signing up a lot of the ex-Academy players that previously (like Hemi Barnes and Jake Thomas) would have gone to Pontypridd. That's going to stem another flow of players into Pontypridd, which isn't good news for them.

The Rags will be an interesting watch.

The Rags are Cardiff RFC who play in the WP. The club's second team.

Now that's a claim.

I think that we're seeing a trend across the sport in which many prefer the slapstick lower standards of the community game over the chess like professional game.

Rugby is not chess, they are two different sports. Also, I would not say the game yesterday was slapstick. Ebbw Vale were excellent, they played some very good rugby and they mixed it up as well, with some good forward play along with some slick backs moves.

I think you are being very disrespectful to the teams playing in that game yesterday. It was a cracker.

That's why I wrote 'chess like'.

The standard of play yesterday was low in comparison with the pro game. That's obvious. It makes for a version of entertainment if you don't like rugby played with patterns, organisation, defensive alignment and correct decision making.

Ponty have always signed older players and their local guys, evidently it's worked well for them in past. I'm not sure how supplemented they were by professional and academy players, my guess is that they were supplemented fairly well, but now they find themselves being less supplemented as the months and seasons go by. They always bit the hand that fed and now here we are, Ponty are on a downward spiral.

They have been hugely supplemented in the past but, thankfully, Wilson now seems to be stopping that.

I think it's a bit early to predict a downward spiral but the average age of their starting players on Sunday was 27.

In the past haven't Ponty beat all and sundry, going unbeaten or losing just one game in a season? Those were in fairly recent times, I think. In that regard I would say Ponty are on a downward spiral. They will still be a good WP team next season there's no doubt about that, but they won't be dominating and not for a long time (if ever again).

This is surely a WUM from Bowelais, who has nothing but disgust for teams 'that don't turn up'. Ponty ship 30 barely-answered points and somehow it's a cracker....

I was at the game. Ponty were terrible and deserved to be stuffed Laugh

Well done Ebbw though. The fans were a good crack. Probably the last time I see Ponty play for a while as moving abroad in September


Shame after winning the league they couldn't put in a decent playoff performance. Quite baffled by it to be honest. Ah well...it could worse...I could be a Newpert Gwent Monmouthshire Cross Keys supporter Yahoo

Anyway...I'm defecting to Real Madrid next season. If I can get a ticket that is.Yipeeeeeeee

The point I was trying to make is that after finishing above all the other teams, it's a a bit bonkers how Ponty played so pathetic in the final. I know the rules as did Ponty. Good effort though Wink

Cheers Mikey

It was a mad rush home Saturday evening after managing to wangle today off, it was a very slow drive home to Bedford today with a few coffee stops. It was a cracking day out yesterday, some of the Ponty fans point blank refused to believe that it was going to be anything bar a Ponty win and why did Ebbw even bother turning up etc as there was no way they were going to end the season without anything.

That said after the game they were on the whole gracious in defeat. The game started off with Ponty on the front foot and I did think we were in for a long day but after that and the scrum aside we were dominant in every facet.

Our lineout and driving maul work was outstanding all day and we took our chances very well. Sweet, Kynes and Langdon had fantastic games and Hudd was his usual aggressive self.

Well Done Boys cracking day cracking atmosphere and a heavy night was had.

Ponty 0-14 Ebbw HT.
Two tries and two convos I think. Thought the last convo was missed though. Better check with Rick O'Shea.

Completely disagree. Each faction of the game was well below the standard of the pro game, from organisational play to individual skill levels.

Congrats BW and to all at Ebbw Vale. Was an exciting match to watch played at a frenetic pace! I echo MD's comments; it is good to see the league won by a well run, community Gwent club.

Cheers GD, was a great day and great to finally get over the line as even in the days before the Regions were managed a few semi finals and a final but always fell at last hurdle. There are some really good players coming through again and I hope the Dragons have a look at some of them from time to time.

Couple of questions:

a) who are you thinking of as 'coming through'?
b) Why only the NGD to have a look at them?

They're in our region so should be the NGD priority. That won't stop them getting poached by the west wales teams first though I guess.

I think other than Keddie, none will make the step up if I am honest. Saw both Sweet and Jones play for the A side in the BIC and neither particularly impressed. That being said it is probably hard to in a scratch side.

Maybe not soon, but in the future there could be more. Some slip through net and reappear years down the line.

Absolutely agree. The key is to make the premiership as competitive as possible and to raise the standard as much as possible (if the regions are not going to run fully pro A sides).

They're going to, aren't they? If we do have A teams I feel that the premiership should be invested in regardless.
