Broncos frustrated by Titans

BONYMAEN Broncos were left without a fixture in rugby league’s South Wales Conference on Saturday as their game with the Titans was called off.

The Gwent outfit were unable to raise a side.

Meanwhile, Bridgend Blue Bulls went down 46-32 at home to Valley Cougars.

Five tries from wing Danyl Davies helped the Cougars to victory at Porthcawl RFC against a side who had prop Charles Stevenson sent off in the 10th minute.

The Cougars were 4-0 up after a Ceri Lloyd try when Stevenson was shown a straight red for punching from referee Ian Jones, and the Nelson-based side took advantage of the extra man straight away — scoring two quick tries from Davies and Jon Sanigar.

But the Bulls battled back well with tries for Dave Upton and Gareth Howells. Bridgend should have drawn level with Josh Collins, Ken Dowding and Lee Harben-Jones all going close but the visitors broke away and Davies sprinted clear for his second.

That lead was increased just a few seconds into the second half when Davies claimed his hat-trick.

The Bulls almost pulled off a dramatic comeback as great play from Gareth Howells and Gethin Davies sent Nathan Hawkins under the posts before Dowding charged over. A long run from debutant Gareth Cox resulted in a score for Lewis Donnelly and the reigning champions then took the lead when Tylon Mafi broke through four tackles to score.

But the Cougars rallied. Sanigar and Scott Belmont helped send Jack Morris over and they went on to claim three more scores in the final minutes as the Cougars ended the Blue Bulls’ ten-year record of having never lost two consecutive games.
