WREXHAM coach Alan Jenkins insists that momentum will be key to his side’s success this term.

The Bryn Estyn Lane club have made a fine start to the Division Two North campaign, with three successive league victories to date.

That fine league form transferred to the WRU Bowl competition last weekend as tries from Jack Ratcliffe, Scott Leckie, Nick Dodd Rhodri Parry, Jack Harrison Ed Evans and Jacob Hughes earned a comprehensive 47-12 win at Holyhead.

And Jenkins says today’s home clash with mid-Wales club Cobra offers a gauge of his side’s title credentials against a top four rival.

He said: “We’ve started quite well but we know the league will be quite tight this season and it’s all about remaining as consistent as possible throughout the season.

“There’s quite a few teams in there who are capable of a win on their day so it’s really important that we keep the momentum up now.

“COBRA will be one of the teams in the top four, I think, so a win is important.

“They usually have a good pack so we’re looking at more of the same from our pack.

“We’ve used the ball we’ve had quite well so far so I hope we carry on with that.

“In our last league game against Colwyn Bay the backs scored all four tries and last week the forwards all got on the scoresheet.

“Another four-try win would be ideal this weekend and I really don’t care who scores them.

“It was a very tough game we had against Holyhead lasty week and we had to work hard for every point against a well-organised side.

“We knew what we were going to get and we dealt with that well, with the forwards fronting up and the backs making the most of that.

“Overall it was a very pleasing but expensive win for us.

“We lost prop and Captain Jamie Weston for a couple of weeks as well as flanker Thom Crossman.

“The positives from last week’s second team win was that some of the players returning from injury got a full game under the belt and are available for selection.”

Wrexham can overhaul current pacesetters Llanidloes , who boast the division’s only other unbeaten record this term with maximum points from their four games to date.

The Montgomeryshire club have no league fixture today, while second-placed Newton head to Bangor, Dolgellau host Welshpool and Colwyn Bay visit Rhyl.

Division One basement side Mold are winless in four league games and will look to kick-start their season at home to Bro Ffestiniog.

Third-placed Ruthin have fared better early in the campaign and visit Pwllheli today, while Caernarfon host Bethesda, Nant Conwy head to Llandudno , and Llangefni entertain Bala.

Flint head into their Division Three derby against Shotton Steel buoyed by an emphatic 66-10 success at Benllech last weekend.

A hat-trick of tries from Dan Rogers helped the visitors to their biggest win of the season to date, while Dave Connolly’s Shotton side return to action after a two-week fixture break.

Mold seconds will pursue their first win of the season at fellow strugglers Rhos today, while Denbigh seconds host Benllech, Menai Bridge go to Anglesey rivals Holyhead, while Llangefni seconds meet Pwllheli seconds.

In the North Wales Seconds League, Wrexham head to in-form Bethesda as the visitors look to build on their 88-0 drubbing of Flint last time out.

The Wrexham tries came thick and fast at Bryn Estyn Lane with hat-tricks for James Price, Blake Turner and Kerry Powell.

Further efforts from Jack O’Donnell and Adam Jones added the gloss to a one-sided affair in Wrexham’s third league win of the season.

Flint will look to bounce back as they head to Llandudno, while Ruthin entertain Bala and early pacesetters Caernarfon head to Rhyl.
