A FIFTH straight win arrived for RGC courtesy of a 27-22 victory at Heol-y-Cyw, but Chris Horsman's men were tested on a heavy pitch in the South Wales valleys.

Tries from local boys Carwyn ap Myrddyn and Josh Leach, as well as a penalty and conversions from Rhodri Carlton-Jones, maintained the rep squad's perfect start of the season, with Horsman delighted at another gritty display

"I don't think that you can underestimate what an achievement it has been for us to win our opening five games of the season," he said.

"To play and win five consecutive away games with all that that involves in terms of the travel involved is phenomenal.

"As I have said before, we have always known what a talented bunch of players we have in the RGC squad, but days like today also show the strength of character they possess.

"I spoke before the game not only of the respect that we have gained since the beginning of the season but also that such respect could be easily lost. Performances such as today's will ensure that RGC Rugby continues to be taken seriously."

A penalty try put RGC ahead, and though the hosts reduced the arrears with a penalty, Carwyn Ap Myrddin crossed over after a surging run from Richard Hopkins to extend the lead, with Carlton-Jones converting before adding a penalty.

Heol y Cyw again bit back with their first try, but Leach dived over from close range just before half time for RGC's third try.

A crucial penalty try followed after the break, and though Heol Y Cyw scored a couple more tries before the end, RGC comfortably held out for the win.

RGC hit the road again this weekend with a trip to face Rhondda side Treorchy
