COMMENTS. For the greater portion the match was of a slow character, and Treherbert lost through their inability to avail themselves of the chaises which came their way. Francis played a great game, while Edwards was also good. Cox and Thomas were the pick of the forwards. For Mid-Rhondda Matthews, Baker, and Wrentmore were very conspicuous.
