WBA Carruthers Shield
Two Monmouthshire sides have made it through to the quarter finals with pride of place going to Cwmbran Park who beat a strong Dinas Powys team. RTB Ebbw Vale also go through after defeating Gilfach Goch. Our other three teams found it a bit tougher with Beaufort losing at Harlequins, Blackwood lost at Whitchurch and Pontymister Athletic found Pontrhydyfen too strong at home.
Good luck next week to Cwmbran who face Presteigne at home and RTB who are home to Pontrhydyfen.
