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.
