Playing against a Wooden Spoon Charity side made up mainly of National Division 2 players, Gogledd Cymru competed well and there was no score in this match for most of the first half. Adam Robson converted a penalty and the Anti-Assassins retorted with a converted try to make it 7-3 at the interval, Robson hitting the posts with a late penalty.
Hooker Andrew Baston was outstanding in a game played in wet muddy conditions. There was lack of cohesion in the Gogledd Cymru side, a reflection of a backline combination playing together for the first time and a forward back disrupted by injury and work commitments.
In the second half Gogledd Cymru started to improve their performance in the rucks but poor decision making and desperate individual try scoring efforts frustrated a number of try scoring opportunities.
As in the last game against Sale Jets, it was the ability of the opposition to punish Gogledd's mistakes that made the difference, even when these were made deep into their own territory.
A last minute try took the score to 19-3, in a game in which there were few positives for Gogledd Cymru; the addition of new players who, with time, will take this team to a higher level and the realisation that players have to be playing at this level, rather than at North Wales club rugby level in order to improve were two. Last season, Waterloo defeated Gogledd Cymru 37 -0 and this result indicated the improvement that the regional team has made over 2 seasons.
