Whitehead edge closely fought contest as Rhymney Ill discipline cost them dearly

Top of the table Rhymney suffered only their third loss of the season against a well organised defensive effort from Whitehead. The game started with early Whitehead pressure resulting in a penalty in front of the posts on Rhymney 22 after 10 minutes which David Mulroy had no difficulty in converting. After a period of play which saw possession going back and forth, Rhymney were awarded a penalty from about 35 metres which they opted to kick and were successful. Whitehead applied more pressure and were awarded another penalty from 35 yards which David Mulroy converted. Rhymney player yellow carded for "Tip tackle". Second half saw early pressure applied by Whitehead with no reward shown. Rhymney then applied their own sustained pressure which saw Whitehead under the cosh for the remainder of the second half, but their defense held firm with no penalties awarded against them. Ill discipline from Rhymney saw a second yellow card for dangerous tackling, much to the annoyance of their vocal travelling support.
