Dunvant travel to 5th placed Llangennech, 1 point behind us as we seek to reverse our 28-31 home loss and our first win after 4 consecutive defeats.

When we played Llangennech at Broadacre 3 weeks ago we seemed to be heading for a comfortable victory leading 21-5 at half time. As the second half started some poor Dunvant discipline suffered two yellow cards in one minute and whilst we were down to 13 men Llangennech took advantage and romped into a 21-31 lead. Dunvant got back to 28-31 and for the last 10 minutes were camped on their try line, winning several penalties, spurning the points for the draw and going for the win. Perhaps they too should have been carded for persistent offending but it wasn’t to be and Dunvant have now suffered four consecutive defeats to drop into 4th place. Defeat today would see our opponents change places with us, Dunvant need the victory to keep the pressure on 3rd placed Gorseinon. Llangennech have lost their last two home games but did earn losing bonus points off Crymych and Gowerton so will be delighted if they can get a home victory today. Another tight contest is on the cards today.
Don’t forget you red and green supporters- respect the Referee, respect the players, respect our opponents and enjoy the game, whatever the result, wherever you are. Be Loud-Be Proud
