DUNVANT HOST THE SEASIDERS THIS SATURDAY 3.30 p.m. (12th May)

1 week ago By Roger Knight

For our penultimate game of the season Dunvant host a Tenby United side fighting for Division 1 survival whilst we mount a challenge for 2nd place

Tenby United were Division 2 West Champions last season and were promoted along with 2nd placed Tycroes. Tycroes are now already relegated this season whilst 11th placed Tenby are in a relegation dogfight with Kidwelly, Penclawdd, and Llanelli Wanderers. As it stands Tenby can get a maximum of 49 points, a 5 point win for them today would take them above 10th placed Penclawdd on try count and secure their safety. Their remaining fixture next Saturday sees them travelling to League Champions Felinfoel which is a huge challenge for them.
Dunvant on 59 points need a maximum 5 points from today’s game and another 5 next Saturday away at Tycroes to leapfrog Gowerton and take 2nd place
Last time we met Tenby at Broadacre in 2016 it was an absolute try thriller with Dunvant running in 13 tries and Tenby 6..In our last meeting at Heywood Lane earlier this season, Dunvant had to battle really hard for a 24-31 win and with both sides loving to play fast running rugby and battling for the full 80 minutes, today should be no different
Finally Dunvant RFC sends congratulations to Division 1 West Champions Felinfoel who now face a 2 legged play off with undefeated Maesteg Harlequins to decide which club will be promoted to the Championship. We also congratulate Division 2 West teams Whitland and Yr Hendy who will be joining us in Division 1 West next season.
Don’t forget you red and green supporters- respect the Referee, respect the players, respect our opponents and enjoy the game, whatever the result. Be Loud-Be Proud
