League Round 5 Results

The South Cardiff Panthers were victorious in the 2011 season’s first Capital City Derby. The top vs bottom clash saw Cardiff’s two teams battle in out in wet and windy conditions at the Welsh Institute of Sport. Jack Wells gave the Panthers’ Chris James a tough battle in the ruck contest and the Double Blues were the first on the scoreboard. However Daniel Morgan-Kane was once again in magnificent form for the Panthers, scoring 7 goals with Dougie Young kicking 3 to help the Panthers win 17.25.127 – 9.7.61.

The Swansea Magpies were also in a local derby as they took on the Bridgend Eagles. With the Eagles missing some crucial players they were unlucky to lose a match where they were neck and neck up until the 4th quarter. Tim Atkins kicked some stunning goals to ensure the Magpies won 6.13.67 – 7.8.50 to put them 3rd in the table.

In the WARFL final round 5 match, the Bristol Dockers made another journey across the Severn as they took on the Vale Warriors at Barry RFC. The game saw the Dockers win 13.6.84 – 7.7.56 leaving them 2nd behind the Panthers in the table.
