Rugby Union: Hirwaun revel in 150-0 win

PHIL THOMAS, the coach of mid-Glamorgan club Hirwaun, is a difficult man to please. After his team had thrashed visitors Lampeter College 150-0 in the second round of the WRU Cup, Thomas insisted: 'We should have scored more points.' Quite how they would have found the time to expand on their tally of 24 tries and 15 conversions is hard to imagine.

FROM one extreme to the other, again in Wales, the Heineken League meeting of Maesteg and South Wales Police was a pointless affair, literally. After conceding 913 between them in 30 previous First Division outings, the Welsh elite's punchbags were unable to contrive a single point.

LLANELLI have resumed normal service. Colin Stephens kicked 22 points as they flattened Newbridge 52-7 to stay in second place ahead of Cardiff, who have emphasised their renewed strength in depth by releasing the Wales winger Arthur Emyr. Better news for the Neath flanker Kevin Fox whose plea that a positive drug test resulted from an innocently taken cold cure was accepted by the Welsh authorities. Emyr's old club Swansea stayed on top without playing that well in a 29-6 beating of sinking Bridgend.

JED-FOREST possess the last 100 per cent record in the McEwan's First Division after a 20-9 win over Dundee HSFP and Gala's 33-18 defeat at Edinburgh Academicals.
