A FIRST Division One North win of the season came in great style for Wrexham.

Last season's Division Two North champions broke their league duck for the campaign with a 36-0 success at home to Dolgellau, who are the only side still searching for a first triumph of the season.

Wrexham, with confidence from a cup win against Ruthin seven days earlier, came storming out of the blocks and they were 15-0 ahead inside the opening 20 minutes.

Olly Dodd grabbed the opening try after just four minutes and this was converted by Jack Jones, who soon kicked a penalty to stretch the lead out.

On 18 minutes, it was the turn of Gareth Parry to cross the whitewash and Parry's second score after half-an-hour - his fifth try in just two games - effectively sealed the victory.

Jones added the extras as Wrexham reached the break 22 points ahead.

Kenny Simms' try nine minutes after the restart sealed a bonus point and Dodd added another score for good measure. Jones converted both of these tries.

It was always going to be a tough test for Mold at top-three side Bethesda.
The Chester Road side lost out 31-15 on their travels.

Mark Padgett and Tom Ellis grabbed the tries, one of which was converted by full back Sam Doughty, who also kicked a penalty.

In the match of the day, defending champions Nant Conwy take over at the top courtesy of a 16-11 win over previous front-runners Llandudno.

Ruthin had to be satisfied with a share of the spoils from their 22-22 draw at Llangefni, while Caernarfon edged out COBRA 23-21 and Pwllheli defeated Bala 22-8.

Shotton Steel were beaten 22-3 at home by Welshpool in Division Two North.

RGC's wait for a first Premiership triumph of the campaign goes on after they were defeated 26-10 at Ebbw Vale.

Daf Williams scored the visitors' only try in the second half, while Sam Earl-Jones added a penalty and conversion into the mix.

Head coach Ceri Jones told the RGC website: “I thought it was a much-improved performance, but we again at times we didn’t deal with the momentum of the game.

"Some decisions in the game I didn’t agree with and when those go against you, then it plays into a team like Ebbw Vale.

"They are a territory side, so that kick to touch and driving maul is what they are good at.

"That said, we need to control the game better and learn that if decisions aren’t going our way – then how to deal with that."
