The Foxes.

Last night the Foxes moved a step closer to the Silver Ball Final, with an emphatic win over Division 3 Side Swansea Uplands 50 points to Nil.

The Swansea side certainly came out fighting, but as the game progressed the big Bedlinog pack started to dominate, and the backline had some quality ball to work with.

The scorers were

2 Penalty trys.

Craig Davies 1

Damon Pritchard 1

Rhys Walker 1

Ben Grzesica 1 try  3 cons,1 pen

Liam Jones 1 try 3 cons.

We now play Taff’s Well in the Semi Final at Glyn Neath on 20th April.

The coaching team of Craig Dummett, Lloyd Woods, Rhydian Jones and Luke Evans and Team Manager Ray Fussell, have done a great job of getting this team firing on all cylinders on the field, and bringing them together off the field.

This group of players have something special without even realising it, the way they play for each other on the field, is a testament to the bond they have off the field.

They are on the verge of making history, with two semi-finals and contenders for the league title still to play for, this makes it a very exciting end to a tough season, having to play 2 games a week to fit the backlog of fixtures in before the end of the season.

We are very fortunate we have a strong squad base, which is proven with the Development team being in a Cup Final on 24th April and vying for the top spot in the league.

With the ever loyal support of the village behind the boys, I am sure they will be the 16th man on every game, and that goes to show with 2 buses going to Swansea on Saturday.

We are 80 minutes of rugby away from playing at the Principality (Millennium) Stadium, I know the coaching staff will be keeping the players grounded, and will be taking one game at a time.

The club last had a taste of playing at the National stadium 28 years ago, when they lifted the Brewers cup, they also won it again in 1998 but that was played at Caerphilly.

People say Trophies just gather dust in cabinets, but the memories made winning them last a life time, this team are a band of brothers and their destiny is in their own hands.

I am just privileged to be part of it, and I wish them the best of luck when they wear that Fox with pride on Saturday.
