CAERNARFON were unable to cause a stir at the Specsavers National League Division One North summit as they were thrashed 76-13 at home by Llandudno.

The defending champions were at their ruthless best to extend their unbeaten start, and they notched the first score of the game on seven minutes when a burst of pace from Aled Meredith saw him touch down. Ryan Pike added the extras.

This was followed by another on 20 minutes when RGC squad member Oscar Lennon demonstrated his class to go over for a try, and Rhys Henderson also got in on the act with a score of his own with 29 on the clock.

Another dominant series from the Goats’ pack resulted in Byron Davies dotting over on 35 minutes, Pike added the extras, and the gifted fly-half added to his tally with a try of his own towards the end of the first half which he also converted.

The hosts did manage to get on the scoreboard through a penalty in the final action of the half, but this joy proved to be short-lived as the visitors scored yet again following the interval when a superb passing move was finished off by Arthur Lennon. Pike despatched the extras.

The rampant away side tore through the Cofis’ defences throughout the remainder pf the contest, which saw Henderson (2), Dave Davies, Pat Coy and Arthur Lennon (2) all going over in the second period as four Pike conversions completed the rout.

There was better fortune for Bethesda, who secured a hugely impressive 15-11 win at Pwllheli to maintain their exceptional start to the campaign, and Dolgellau dug deep in difficult conditions to seal a 25-7 home victory over Bro Ffestiniog.

Menai Bridge emerged victorious from their trip to Llangefni 2nds thanks to a dramatic 20-19 triumph against their Division Three North rivals, but Holyhead were unable to replicate this and fell to a 24-7 loss at Ruthin 2nds.
