It was the morning after the night before, and Gareth Bale was getting positive headlines. The minnows of Marine had succumbed to the might of Spurs – despite the inevitable lopsided scoreline being somewhat tempered by a resilient second-half display from the Northern Premier League side.

Scrum-half Webb, who returned from France to join the Ospreys and revive his Wales career, has lost out to Scarlets youngster Kieran Hardy, as well as established No.9 rivals Gareth Davies and Tomos Williams.
