Piod Pinc start league campaign with a bang!

Sunday, 17 September 2017 will go down as a milestone date in the short history of the Piod Pinc as they not only made their WRU Women's National League debut but also achieved their first 15 a side victory, 10-8 against visiting Cardiff side Whitchurch Ladies. The improvement in the players over the last 12 months has been fantastic and the hard work on the training field is now starting to pay dividends in their matches. The defensive play and rucking from the girls ensured that their opponents had great difficulty getting over the gain line and with ball in hand the girls showed great skills to create space and beat their opposite numbers. A small squad has grown with the addition of a few players over the summer and it was great to see a full replacements bench on the touch line. Tumble took the lead in the first half when number 8 Angharad Williams scored a try wide out before Whitchurch clawed three points back with a penalty kick. The half time score was 5-3 to Tumble.

The second half saw the Piod Pinc work the overlap to put pacy full back Sophie Pick into space. The covering Whitchurch defence were unable to get near Pick and she scored a lovely try near the corner flag to see Tumble take a 10-3 lead, the conversion attempt went wide. Whitchurch pulled a try back some 10 minutes later but with no further scoring Tumble saw out the remainder of the game to achieve the victory (10-8) and four league points. The referee's final whistle saw delirious celebrations from players and supporters and bar staff making emergency beer orders to the local brewery! Da iawn Merched.
