Wrexham fell to their first defeat of the North Wales League Division Two season as they lost 20-14 to COBRA.

The weather played a huge part in the game, with the wind giving huge advantages to the teams in either half.

Two penalties from Will Worthington edged the visitors ahead in a scrappy opening quarter.

The first try of the afternoon came from COBRA number eight Jack Jewkes, who managed to break a tackle and slide over for a converted score.

Jewkes got his second just before the break and the conversion from Worthington made the score 20-0 to the visitors at half time.

With the wind now in favour of the hosts, they looked to claw there way back into the game.

After a period of sustained pressure, Christian Burgoyne managed to edge over from close range, with the conversion from Sam Rogers.

Winger Bailey Rae, was left aggrieved has he had two tries disallowed although Wrexham did get a second score late on through Owen Weston who touched down in the corner, Rogers converted with a fine kick.

Head Coach Alan Jenkins said: “We knew what the weather was going to be like and tried to plan for that. I think we gave ourselves a little bit too much to do in the second half and just couldn’t quite get that final score”.
