Bedwas feel the full force of the Law

IF the Bedwas players thought that they were going to get a pat on the back for earning a bonus point against champions Pontypridd then they would have been in for a shock on Tuesday, writes Chris Kirwan.

Steve Law and his coaching team gave the squad a “roasting” in training after their performance at Sardis Road.

And they are demanding that their charges respond with a far better display when Swansea head to Bridge Field tomorrow afternoon.

“The bonus point was about the only positive from that performance,” said Law.

“Our basic skills were appalling – we gifted them ball and missed far too many tackles.

“We are not happy with that display and the players have certainly been made aware of that.

“There needs to be a reaction against Swansea because although there are no easy games in the Premiership, home games are vital.

“We will make a number of changes because a number of players were given opportunities at Pontypridd but didn’t take them and won’t be in the side.”

Bedwas will be looking to repeat last season’s 15-13 success against the Whites, which was secured by a last-gasp penalty by fly-half Richard Powell in horrendous conditions.

“It was the best kick I have ever seen," said Law. “It was near the touchline on the 10-metre line in a monsoon on a heavy pitch but he put it over.”
