CALEY REDS 22 PONTYPRIDD 30

TORPEDO-BOOT Lee Jarvis wrecked the Reds' hopes of launching their Celtic League campaign with a narrow win.

The former Cardiff star thumped over a series of huge penalties to take the points back to the valleys.

Caley Reds were six points adrift even before they got into their stride.

But a superb Gavin Scott try saw Glasgow burst back in sizzling style to claim the first try and Tommy Hayes converted.

Rattled Ponty snatched back the lead almost immediately when Brett Davey crashed over

Then deep into first-half stoppage time Hayes touched down to take Glasgow within a point.

But Jarvis had the Reds reeling again eight minutes after the restart with an amazing penalty strike from almost 10 metres inside his own half.

He landed two more within quick succession and although the home side kept plugging back the gap Jarvis had the last word with another accurate kick.
