FOLLOWING a powerful second-half display from their pack, the Penarth Rugby Club U12s surged to victory in a hard fought local derby.
On a drizzly Sunday morning, Penarth broke the stalemate after 10 minutes when some sensational play through the midfield to the Dinas 22 saw great work by Evan Lloyd and Rhys Newman finished with a try for Aled Rhys.
Showing plenty of spirit, Dinas scored a lovely try of their own to make it all to play for in the second half.
Powerful drives from Lewys 'The Rock' Williams and ever present Lloyd put Penarth in the driving seat in the second half and their hard work led to two tries for the former.
Maintaining the tempo, Penarth capped a fine performance with two breakaway tries from Rhys, who punched through the centre, and man of the match Lloyd who ran in from the Dinas 22 to score under the posts.
A special mention to Cameron Willan who, utilising his speed and agility, managed the ball well in defence.
