Titans avenge their last varsity defeat with impressive victory over the Cobras

SWANSEA Titans finished their season on a high with a comprehensive victory over the Cardiff Cobras at varsity.


The win shows just how far the Titans have come in recent years, avenging their last varsity defeat which saw them lose 57-0 at Sketty Lane in 2010.

It was a scrappy start to the game for both sides, with the offensive units under pressure to punt the ball clear on their first drive attempts.

Swansea’s running game appeared to be building momentum yet it was quarterback Simon George and wide-receiver Wyatt who combined to score the first points of the game.

Soon enough Swansea scored again as Ollie Runswick punched the ball into the end-zone to stretch the lead to two scores.

Cardiff answered immediately. Their pass first approach began to pay off with a couple of big gains and a successful aerial touchdown.

The Cobras added another soon after following a 67-yard breakaway to give Cardiff a narrow 16-14 lead.

Their lead did not last for long as Wyatt found the gap and sprinted away to score his second touchdown of the day and Swansea the lead at the break.

The second half began with Swansea pushing for another but found a resolute Cardiff defensive line ahead of them.

But Swansea found a way through thanks to the combination of George and Wyatt once again to give their side a 30-14 lead, which included a two point conversion from full-back Josh Hughes.

Cardiff were running out of time and faced a very solid Swansea defence led by captain Steve Donaldson-Ellison.

With no way through Swansea continued to pile the pressure on, missing two potential touchdowns due to two late fumbles.

The final score of the game came from the two danger men, George and Wyatt, and confirmed the shift in power between the sides from South Wales.
