Pontypridd v Bridgend
18th September 2013
A mid week game against Bridgend who scored 10 points in the first ten minutes, Ponty were awful, there were wholesale changes to the team from the Bedwas game. We were getting a penalised in the scrums and our kicking game was poor, very frustrating game to watch, not a good performance.
With 5 mintues to go Bridgend were winning 23 to 20 and were looking confident of taking a Sardis sclap. In injury time Ponty were pressing Bridgend in their 22. Ponty were awarded a scrum and threw the ball out and Gavin Dacey scored and snatched 'victory from the jaws of defeat'. As Dacey scored the shed errupted and we all knew 'we played our outta jail card'.
Again Bridgend must have been gutted not to win that one, but I think a fair result should have been a draw, but I will take the win.
