Aber fight back to win first home game of the season

On Saturday Abergavenny began their fixtures in League 1 East, with a difficult away trip to Nelson. The team selected to begin the game were: Connor Davies, Curtis Price, Matt Charles, James Trumper, Will Evans, Aaron Scrimgeour, Harry Judd, Alex Howes, Rhob Connick, Rhys Jones, Ieuan Evans, James Lewis, Nathan Williams, Lloyd Holder, Dayle Price.

Abergavenny began the game strongly, stringing together many phases of play with high tempo which took them to within inches of the Nelson try line. Having weathered the storm Nelson then set about showing Abergavenny how to attack from all areas of the field. All fifteen of their players were comfortable with the ball in hand and they demonstrated their skills by passing and offloading the ball with a high tempo and great pace. By half-time they had run in three tries and at the interval they had a very convincing 27 – 3 lead.

Abergavenny began the second half strongly, having several chances to close the deficit but organizing Nelson defense kept them at bay. Nelson then grew in confidence and took complete control of the game to the delight of the home supporters. Nelson ran in five more tries in the second half to extend their score to 56 points. Abergavenny scored a well taken consolation try towards the end of the game by Rhys Ferguson which Nathan Williams converted resulting in a final score-line of 56 – 10.

Next Saturday Abergavenny welcome Dowlais to Bailey Park for their first home game of the season.
