Sully View Chance To Bowl Over The Holders

Former champions Clwb Rygbi Cymry Caerdydd will be home in round two of the WRU National Bowl on 6 October when they host Sully View.

The 2014 winners overcame Fleur de Lys 19-3 in the opening round last weekend and will be hot favourites to reach the third round against a Sully side that received a walk-over in round one.

Another former winner, Amman United, who were unable to defend their title last season after promotion, are back in the competition this season and were awarded a walk-over in round one. They will entertain South Gower in the second round.

Penarth’s reward for their 38-36 home triumph over Llantwit Major, their first win of the season, is a trip to meet fellow Division 3A West side Pentyrch. Unbeaten to date this season, Pentyrch overcame Old Illtydians 20-12 in the first round.

Cardiff University went all the way to the semi-finals last season and another student side, Cardiff Met 2nd XV kicked-off their cup campaign with a 76-0 home win over Hirwaun last weekend. They will now face a tricky away trip to Tonyrefail in the next round.

Too scorers in round one were Machen, who topped the ton against Cardiff Internationals. They will travel to meet fellow Division 3A East rivals Oakdale.
