Pontypool start the season well with success at the Talywain Sevens

Ten teams competed in the Talywain Sevens at Emlyn Park, sponsored by Centrepoint Cash & Carry on Saturday, writes Ray Ruddick. It was Pontypool who ran out worthy winners with victory in each of their four group games before overcoming Pontardawe-based Ponty Butchers in the final.

Pooler started off with a 17-7 win over near neighbours Pontypool United in a close encounter. Then came an easy 37-0 win over the Wildcats and a narrow 14-0 victory over Whiteheads. In their last pool game, Pontypool beat Black Sheep 33-12 to book their place in the final.

Ponty Butchers accounted for Croesyceiliog 33-17 in their first match and followed up with a 47-12 success over Newport HSOB. In their final two group matches they gained easy wins over hosts Talywain 52-0 and Talywain Barbarians 49-0 to qualify for the final.

In the final, Pontypool went into half time 12-7 up with tries by Clayton Gullis and Martin Luckwell and a conversion by captain Tom Hancock. The second half saw Pooler score a further three unanswered tries by Curtis Gregory, Josh Malsom and Kieran Meek, with Meek converting one to give Pontypool a well-deserved 29-7 win.

Young Curtis Gregory and the experienced Tom Hancock caught the eye for Pontypool, as both played well throughout the tournament, but the man-on-the-tournament award went to their team-mate Martin Luckwell.

Pontypool’s winning squad: Tom Hancock (captain), Callum Davies, Ethan Gilmore, Curtis Gregory, Clayton Gullis, Mike Herbert, Jamie Jeune, Martin Luckwell, Josh Malsom, Kieran Meek, Rob Nash, Jorda Torjoe.

The compere for the day was the BBC Wales broadcaster Phil Steele.
