North Wales Division

Two & Three East

ADAM Price starred as Llanidloes stormed to a comprehensive 30-0 victory at home to Harlech in division two of the North Wales League.

The hosts were made to work for the breakthrough which eventually came when scrum-half Price’s strong run saw him break through Harlech’s defence.

Price added the conversion before kicking a penalty as Llanidloes established the lead and doubled their advantage by the break with No8 Gareth Anwyl finishing off a clever back row move.

Price once again converted before adding a penalty as Llanidloes opened a healthy 20 point lead at the break.

Harlech refused to wilt in the second-half but Llanidloes sealed their victory with a third try as prop Neil Jerman crossed and Price converted before the latter added a penalty to complete the scoring and his 20 point haul.

Machynlleth climbed to the top of division three east with a comfortable 24-3 win at home to Flint.

Kameron Simmons-Sandy crossed for the only try of the first-half, converted by Iwan Jones, as the hosts established a slender 7-3 lead at the interval.

Machynlleth struggled in the second-half with an error strewn game failing to inspire until the hosts settled the outcome with a two late tries from Ifor Jones and Iwan Jones.

There was still time for Machynlleth to add a flattering fourth try with Simmons-Sandy racing the length of the pitch to cross for a try with his conversion completing the tally.

Meanwhile Newtown’s match at league whipping boys Rhos was cancelled.
