HUW GRIFFITHS hopes to be celebrating another perfect weekend for Cefn Druids and Wales on Sunday evening.

Griffiths saw the Ancients end a six-game winless run with victory over Caernarfon last Friday, before he watched Wales come from behind to beat France 20-19 in the rugby union World Cup quarter-finals 36 hours later.

And with Wales set to tackle South Africa on Sunday for a place in the World Cup final just hour before Druids face hosts Penybont with three important points at stake, Griffiths is targeting another victory double.

“It would be a fantastic weekend if both Wales and Cefn Druids won,” said boss Griffiths. “It’s a massive game for Wales and another important game for us.”

The only problem Griffiths is facing is how to watch the World Cup semi-final clash as Druids will be on the road at 8am on Sunday morning ahead of the afternoon’s meeting with Penybont.

“I’m a big rugby fan and I want to watch the semi-final,” said Griffiths. “It looks like we are going to have to get laptops and things out to watch the game on the way down to Penybont.

“We will be on the bus from 8am, and although we are football people I think given the choice I’d prefer to watch a World Cup rugby match over a World Cup football match.

“I don’t want to miss the rugby if I can and I have to give Warren Gatland and his side credit for getting as far as they have at the moment.”

While Griffiths hopes to break up the three-and-a-half hour trip to Bridgend by watching Wales book a first-ever World Cup final appearance, the game will not distract him from the afternoon’s task - picking up all three points for Druids.

“We are football people and it’s important for us to stay focused,” added Griffiths.

The Ancients are two places and four points clear of second from bottom Penybont and Griffiths knows the importance of the meeting with the new boys.

“If we win we can create a gap between ourselves and Penybont,” said Griffiths. “If we draw the gap remains at four points after 11 games and obviously if we lose it is down to one point, so we know we need to try and get something from the game.

“I’ve seen Penybont play Connah’s Quay and I liked what I saw and it’s hard to explain why they are down at the bottom end of the table.

“They only just lost to TNS as well, so they are doing something right and we know we need to be on our game to come away with something.”

James Davies will be hoping to shrug off his ‘super-sub’ tag by starting for Druids after three goals in two games from the bench, while Ryan Kershaw is available after suspension.
