Rugby: Nick lifts WRU National League Division One North title with Llandudno

A former pupil and Rugby Academy star at Rydal Penrhos got his hands on some silverware after a standout campaign with a regional club.

Nick Dundee, who left the school in 2017, was part of the Llandudno Rugby Club side that clinched the WRU National League Division One title in convincing fashion, and they rounded off the season in style with t thumping 65-24 win at Pwllheli.

Dundee was a member of the school’s Rugby Academy and made a lasting impression both with Rydal Penrhos’ first XV and with the RGC youth set-up at U16 and 18 level.

He then joined Bangor before signing for the Goats in the summer.

Despite the eventual result it was the home side that drew first blood when Tom Parry Jones went over for a try that was converted by Osian Parry Jones, but the visitors response was swift in the form of an unconverted score from Johnny Stokes.

Parry Jones extended the hosts advantage with a penalty following a series of infringements, but the Goats turned the screw following the restart as a blistering individual run from Oscar Lennon was finished off by Lloyd Evans. Arthur Lennon added the extras.

This shifted the momentum of the contest considerably in favour of the away side, who were at their clinical best throughout the remainder of the first half that resulted in scores from Dan O’Sullivan, Ed Weston and Evans (2), two of which were converted by Lennon.

After the break saw Lennon extended the cushion to 22 thanks to a well-struck penalty, and brother Oscar continued his exceptional recent form with a well-worked score soon after to all-but seal their success.

Lennon once again despatched the conversion attempt, but Pwll’ kept plugging away and crossed the white wash for their final try of the game midway through the half.

That was as good as it got for the home side, with the champions dotting over multiple times to conclude proceedings through Bobby Davies, Aled Meredith and O’Sullivan, two of which were converted by Lennon and Nick Dundee respectively.
