LLANIDLOES FAIL TO SCORE AGAINST OLD RIVALS
GOOD TACKLING and EXcellent Effort
BUILTH 20 LLANIDLOES 0
Llanidloes played a very competitive Builth team and deserved more from this fixture .The first half typified past exchanges as forwards and backs attempted to break down the Builth defensive line. Rob Jones and Dylan Stephen controlled the mid field defence but were unable to breach the home teams line. Most of the first half was played between the 22 meter lines until Builth were awarded a penalty and went three points up at the break.
The second half followed the same pattern with both teams attacking in narrow channels as the heavy pitch effected the type of play. Builth were then awarded a penalty and gained a further 10 meters due to indiscipline ,they then drove up the blind side to power over to score and then control the game .Llanidloes failed to reply as the game progressed and leeked two tries as the game entered the last five minutes .
Llanidloes must take the positives from this game and keep on working hard as there has been great improvements in recent weeks .The whole team tackled well and showed great character throughout.
They must be more streetwise and guard their line for the whole game in the remaining games.
