Rugby league streak continues

Steffan Walters is buoyant after his sides start to the season, expecting great things from the side.

Swansea survived a strong Cardiff Metroplitan fight-back to win, extending their unbeaten run to three games.

Captain Walters said: “I couldn’t ask for a better start for the season.

“We’ve still got a few big weeks ahead of us but I really do believe this league is ours for the taking.”

Despite blustery conditions, both sides made good use of the football, Swansea’s superior back play created an early chance for Jack Longley, but
a crucial knock-on denied the opening score.

Cardiff Met pushed forward but Swansea’s defended resolutely, and built on their strong defensive display to create the opening score after 20 minutes.
After a strong tackle from Tom Grigson, Swansea broke on Cardiff with Longley scoring the first of the game.

Matt Thomas followed up with the conversion.

Swansea then built on their impressive start, forcing Cardiff Met into errors on which Matt Wotherspoon capitalised, allowing Owain Morgan, Thomas, and Bengo Jones to score.

Thomas then failed to convert each time before the break.

The home side made the worst possible start to the second half, conceding early possession and allowing Cardiff Met back into the game with an early conversion.

Swansea’s problems continued when Jones was sent off for a high tackle, forcing a tactical reshuffle, but responded in the best possible way when Longley scored his second try of the game, Thomas converting.

Cardiff Met threw everything at Swansea in the final 30 minutes scoring three more tries, but with Morgan grabbing his second of the game; it ensured another victory for the unbeaten Swansea side.
