Over 9000 rugby supporters flocked to the Millennium Stadium on Monday 2nd May for an action packed SWALEC Cup Finals day. With a thrilling triple header on the pitch and entertainment for the whole family, it was the perfect way to round off the bank holiday weekend.
Pontypridd enjoyed a 35-24 SWALEC Cup victory over Aberavon, Ammanford triumphed over Glynneath by 35-13 in the SWALEC Plate, and Senghenydd took the SWALEC Bowl title from Maesteg Quins after winning 31-30 on the iconic pitch.Pontypridd took on the Wizards in a highly-competitive finale game. A thriller of a Cup final came to an end with Ponty securing the victory, after contending against a spirited Aberavon side throughout.
Ammanford RFC won the SWALEC Plate Final for the second time in three years with a confident display against Glynneath. Ammanford, having collected the SWALEC Plate title, will now focus on trying for a SWALEC League two east win.
With both sides topping the respective SWALEC division four leagues, Senghenydd and Maesteg Quins’ clash was a well-matched, nail-biting challenge. Senghenydd’s ability to dominate the set piece clinched the win, making the club double winners of the SWALEC Bowl and their SWALEC League.
The action off the pitch was almost as entertaining as on it. Wales international stars James Hook and Rhys Priestley took to the pitch to take part in a ‘Power Kick with the Stars’. Two lucky fans won tickets to this summer’s internationals in a ‘Power Punt’ competition. Younger fans enjoyed the ‘Mini-Sparks’ tag rugby and the Kid’s Zone which included face painting, balloon artistry, a bucking bronco and player signing and photo opportunities.The winner of Real Radio’s SWALEC Finals Day competition, Sean Phillips enjoyed a hospitality box for 12 of his friends and family plus the opportunity to meet our brand ambassador and Welsh international player, Ryan Jones, courtesy of SWALEC.Mr Phillips commented, “Well, what an absolute amazing day we had! It was fantastic! It couldn't have been any better. When Ryan Jones came to the box, it just topped off the day, he was great. We thoroughly enjoyed the day, we all thought it would be a once in a lifetime experience but are now hoping that it wont be!”
