Great away win

The Old Illts travelled to Gwernyfed RFC in good mood and managed an excellent bonus point win against a solid Gwernyfed side 27 - 22.
Scoring 5 excellent tries along the way. The Illts will wonder how Gwernyfed managed to stay in touch throughout the game who only managed a charged down kick, but their outside half kept them in the game with some outstanding kicks. The Illts had probably 75% of possession and territory, with some excellent play culminating in fantastic back play and tries.
 
Credit most go to the home side who kept going throughout making this an excellent game to watch. The illts backline were outstanding with some fine performances from debut making Scott Gregory and Joe Sullivan both making plenty of yards in the centre, allowing the back three of Daf Nicholas, Ryan Healy and Josh Williams to show their skills. Half backs James Harris and Sean Cochlin also played well keeping the ball in front of their hardworking forwards. Up front Shane Young gave a man of the match performance carrying the ball on many occasions deep into Gwernyfed territory, supported well by Phil Morse, Ryan Harford, Kev Tallis and Mikey Hiscocks. Stuart Wilby tackled well throughout as did back rower Chris Erickson.
 
Tries were scored by Mikey Hiscocks after a controlled driving maul. Daf Nicholas went over after some slick back play as did Ryan Healy. Scott Gregory scored his first try for the club superbly. To finish the try scoring Captain Sean Cochlin went over near the posts which he also converted. It was good to see wing Arthur Mills get on to make his debut and he performed well.
The Illts face Cefn coed away this coming Saturday and will hope this encouraging level of performances will be continued.
Big thanks to the supporters who travelled to Gwernyfed.
