Trebanos bowed out of the WRU National Plate at the last 16 stage for the second successive season as a first ever fixture with Nelson RFC ended in disappointment. In a fiercely contested cup tie, the hosts outscored the Ancient Borough by two tries to one to earn a place in the Quarter Finals. We wish Nelson well for the remaining rounds. Match report to follow.
Box 13 is back with big money prizes to be won every Saturday from now until the end of the season. Lynn Penhale failed to open the box on behalf of this week's winner, Aled Humphries, so next Saturday's jackpot will be £100 with 12 keys remaining. See Rod Alder or Steve Card for tickets.
Trebanos Youth avenged their loss to Cwmtwrch earlier in the season with an emphatic win, demonstrating the rapid improvement that this young side are making.
It has been announced that Dublin's fair city has secured the right to host the 2017 Trebanos RFC Tour. Shares in Guinness brewer, Diageo, leapt 25% on the announcement. The deadline for receipt of deposits has now passed but please see Richard Davies for any further information. Sláinte.
Many thanks to Ospreys and Wales half backs Dan Biggar and Rhys Webb and to legendary Neath outside half Dai Parker for a great night at the clubhouse all brilliantly hosted by our own Edward Bevan. Wales and Ospreys open side Justin Tipuric kindly donated a Welsh shirt signed by the entire Welsh squad for auction and the winning bid of £450 was generously made by Viv Date seen being presented with it by 'Banos coach and Ospreys and Wales centre Ashley Beck.
Starting this season, a social team for former Trebanos RFC players. Ask at the clubhouse for more details if interested.
