Ponty Rugby Still The Best
Pontypridd RFC have been one of the best teams in Wales for many, many years now but not even their great passion and determination could beat professional outfit and English Championship leaders Bristol in an action-packed British & Irish Cup clash at Sardis Road.
Semi-pro side Ponty were reduced to 12 men at one stage yet still battled on. A total of seven yellow, and one red card were flashed during a fiery encounter. A few missed kicks and some white-line fever eventually did for the home side but what a game and what a performance.
If only the Welsh regions could play with this much heart then we’d have an European champion by now!
Ponty lost 13-24 although still have a chance in the group if Bristol slip up.
