Caldicot RFC 26-10 London Welsh RFC


CALDICOT were delighted to welcome one of the great names of rugby’s amateur era on Saturday (August 18).

London Welsh are an ambitious club who won promotion from Herts/Middlesex One at a canter last year.

Among the visitors to receive a warm Gwent welcome was London Welsh’s honorary president, John Dawes, one of Welsh rugby’s all-time greats.

It was the visitors who put on the early pressure in front of a crowd of more than 300 at Caldicot’s Longfellow Road ground.

Caldicot manager Jordan Bajjada said: “Overall we were pleased but we didn’t get the best start with London Welsh coming out quickly.

“They got an early penalty ad a try which put us under a bit of pressure.”

But as the game progressed the Welsh National Two East side began to dictate.

Caldicot’s first try came from Jack Kedward and scrum half Louis Scimone-Davies kicked a penalty.

A second half break from inside Caldicot’s own half saw Sion Lewis go over for a try after a number of phases.

Another good try in the corner, this time from Sean Roberts put the result beyond doubt.

This weekend, Caldicot have a home friendly against Barry, who finished fifth in Division Two East Central last season.

Kick-off is 2.30pm.
