Llanelli Win Warrior Battle

The Llanelli Warriors won this battle with their namesakes Walcot in a prelude to the Bath v Scarlets match.

The 1st meeting between the sides took place at the side of the famous Recreation Ground in Bath and they served up a game worthy of the history of venue.


Although local side Walcot had home advantage, with it being only their 2nd season, the Llanelli team had experience on their side.

The visitors had the edge for the opening quarter but found the home team hard to break down. The wings had plenty of opportunity but squandered several clear cut chances but eventually centre Johnathan Kearney was worked clear. Walcot were disrupted by an injury to fly half Dan Haine but looked dangerous on the break and worked the conditions well. Although Llanelli scored again through centre Murphy, there was plenty to play for at the half way stage.

The Llanelli team would have been disappointed not to be further ahead but Walcot knew they could have been even closer. They started the second half strongly and scored from a quick penalty to through the game wide open. The Llanelli pack were going well with Man of the Match Tomos Hall making a strong impression and Simon Jenkins carrying well. Andrew Davies almost crossed but Walcot also had their moments and some last ditch tackling was needed to keep the lead.

Busy scrum half Craig James got the Warriors further ahead as he capitalised on his forwards efforts with allowed the visitors some breathing space. Walcot came back again and had the upper hand for most of the last quarter but Kearney got a second for Llanelli to make the game safe as the minutes ticked away.

Walcot couldn't quite add to their score but should know that they played a full part in this quality encounter which showed a high skill level despite the rain.


The night proved more productive for the Llanelli Warriors as they also dominated the Tug of War competition to add some silverware to their cabinet.
