TONER MAKES HIS MARK
TNS took Rhayader apart at the Recreation Ground and moved into third place after a dominant performance
John Toner led the way with a well-taken brace of goals as the Saints settled into their rhythm with a display that will raise eyebrows throughout the League of Wales.
His two goals doubled his tally for the season and he looks as sharp as ever.
After a bright opening Toner volleyed the home side in front after just 12 minutes.
Rhayader came back into it with a brief spell of pressure but crumbled as TNS stepped up a few gears in a one-sided second period.
Saints soon extended their lead when Nicky Ward set up Steve Anthrobus for the goal of the game after 55 minutes.
Ward's splendid cross was headed home with immense precision and power by Anthrobus to put TNS two up.
Then Toner notched his second and his side's third in the 63rd minute, somewhat fortuitously when his mis-hit shot sailed into the net as the wrong-footed keeper lost sight of the ball.
Gary PowelI wrapped it up with the fourth goal three minutes from time.
