The best way to keep up to date with Dunvant Rugby Club



3 months ago By Roger Knight

Dunvant RFC ,unbeaten in 5 league games take on Felinfoel, unbeaten in 4 for the WRU Plate Round 1 this weekend

Although Dunvant currently sit top in League 1 West, it is only because Felinfoel’s game last weekend was abandoned due to injury with Foel in the lead 25-22 against Gowerton before an injury led to the game being abandoned after 79 minutes.
Last time we met the Foel they won comprehensively at Broadacre. beating us 18-53. However in our last 7 encounters Dunvant have won 2-1 at Broadacre and 3-1 at the Foel. Our last meeting in the Cup was the Swalec Plate Round 2 match in December 2011 when Dunvant playing away won 19-24 having been 19-0 up in the first 20 minutes. That game was a real thriller and today’s game should be equally exciting if both teams are at the top of their form.
PLEASE NOTE KICK OFF IS 2.30 p.m. not 2.00 as we previously thought.
Our boys really appreciate our travelling support and you will certainly need to be in good voice for this one. Our Club Singers are away so please do come down if you can to support the boys. 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
