2012 South Wales Students - Swansea 12 UWIC 42

18th March 2012, 19:48

UWIC Cardiff Met secured the first annual South Wales Students Rugby League Challenge game after defeating Swansea University 42-12 at The Gnoll on Sunday.

The match was organised to complement the existing big city "Varsity" games that take place between Cardiff and Swansea Universities in all other major sports.

But with Cardiff University not having a Rugby League team, UWIC Cardiff Met, who have been one of the best student sides in the UK over the last 20 years, represented Wales' capital and came away with a maiden victory.

UWIC attacked from the off. Six minutes in, Daniel Esposito was short of the line.

But four minutes later, Josh Trewartha powered over opening the scoring. Conversion missed 4-0

That try opened the floodgates after a fairly even first 10 minutes as UWIC became dominant with powerful individual performances.

A second try followed soon after as Victor Coker charged through the Swansea defence. Conversion by Scott Amber made it 10-0.

A superb catch by Simon Wright on 16 minutes took UWIC further into the lead which Amber converted.

Some good defence by UWIC denied Swansea their opening score on 20 minutes and the Cardiff side recovered when Josh Trewartha scored his second of the match running away from the defence. The conversion kicked by Scott Amber took the score to 22-0.

Second half kicked off with continued dominance from the UWIC side with Dan Esposito crashing over the line after five minutes of the second half after receiving a well-timed pass.

Esposito ran 50 metres to score his second in as many plays taking the Cardiff side even further into the lead.

Swansea opened their scoring by crashing into the corner on 52 minutes when Elis Robinson went over the corner line.

UWIC looked to address the balance on the hour but Coker was held up over the line at 60 minutes after a scintillating length of the field attempt at a try while an attempt by Andrew Wilkes of UWIC was ruled out for a forward pass at 62 minutes.

But Josh Kelly cantered over the line to increase the UWIC advantage with Scott Amber's conversion making the score 36-4.

Swansea got another try back on 70 minutes with an excellent effort by Stefan Price while another followed a short while later through Ed Clark.

Andrew Wilkes made up for his earlier missed attempt by sailing over the line right on the final hooter. The conversion from Scott Ambler was successful giving UWIC a 42-12 win.

The match was played in excellent spirits throughout and there are high hopes for a second encounter in 2013.
