THE lads from Cae Ddol are still waiting to drop their first point of the campaign.

Ruthin continue to lead in way in WRU League Division One (North) after securing a bonus point win at home to Caernarfon.

The 32-15 outcome means Ruthin have now picked up 15 out of a possible 15 points and they have a one-point advantage over second-placed Pwllheli.

In a hard-fought encounter, the Blues had points on the board after just seven minutes when wing Bryn Sheppard ran over the whitewash after a Ruthin lineout in the Cofis' 22.

The visitors went further behind after 20 minutes of play.

A good break by centre Mike Jones led to wing Gwion Richards grabbing a try, which he converted himself.

Caernarfon responded and after spending some time trying to break down the home defence, they reduced the arrears with a try.

Ruthin bounced right back within five minutes via a pushover try from the pack from a lineout five yards out from the Caernarfon line, with second row Chris Davies claiming the honours.

The whistle blew for half-time with Ruthin comfortably ahead 17-5.

After the break, the Blues returned to the visitors’ 22 and within a few minutes, Davies was over the line again for a try.

At 22-5 ahead, it looked as though the home side might coast until the end of the game, but Caernarfon had other ideas.

After a penalty kick led to a lineout on Ruthin’s 22, the Gwynedd side went over for their second try.

Again, Ruthin came back and they stretched their advantage further with a try by full back Iestyn Davies.

Despite further pressure from the Blues, it was Caernarfon who were back on the scoreboard next with their third try.

At 27-15, a possible two league points were available to the visitors if they scored a further try.

However, with three minutes to go, Blues' captain Emyr Gwynedd extinguished that hope with a fine dash over the try line and the game ended with no further score.

Caernarfon's try scorers were Ilan Davies and Ieuan Owen (2).
