Bedlinog is an isolated village built on a very steep hill in South Wales, south east of Merthyr Tydfil, United Kingdom.
Unemployment is high but the increasing prosperity and growth of Cardiff, only half an hour by car, has created many commuter jobs and a feeling of optimism for the future.
Its isolation has led to Bedlinog being perceived as backward and inbred by surrounding towns, which are not exactly cosmopolitan themselves.

Bedlinog matches are always like that, with their well drilled and strong set of forwards keen to exploit their driving maul skills, and this time they were determined to seal third spot in the league to boot.
Inside fifteen minutes Bedlinog had put twelve points on the board to generate even more touch line refereeing from their staunch supporters, not that the referee needed encouragement in the art of perverse interpretations of the laws from others on this occasion.
The forwards were also embarrassed for their lack of progress and on the sixtieth minute they for once had Bedlinog at sixes and sevens on their own line and Edwards was to claim the points with Croudace converting.
