Shrewsbury 39 vs Llanidloes 24
TOM JARMAN 2
Llanidloes travelled to Shrewsbury with 13 players but played a integral role in a very entertaining game played in good spirit by both sides. Shrewsbury opened the scoring but Llanidloes broke from defence as new centre Dion Kohler used his pace and determination to cross under the posts .Llanidloes defended very well against strong running attacks by the home side as Rob Jones playing flanker for the first time Cai Lewis and Dylan Stephen made some excellent tackles .As Llanidloes defended a home attack Rob Jones was able to tackle and jackal the ball to race 40 meters and cross under the posts.On more than one occasion Llanidloes cleared with deep kicks and then follow to nearly score ,Ieuan Phillips in one move cleared from defence to find a super charged turbo gear and was unlucky not to score .The best try of the game was scored when backs and forwards linked to allow Dylan Stephen to score out wide, the last try was scored in similar fashion when the Shrewsbury prop playing for Llanidloes ended a fine move to score again near the corner flag .
Coach Sam Cannon awarded the man of the Match to Frankie Bacigalupo who seemed to enjoy his tasty treat in big macs
This Llanidloes team have improved this season with increased game time and skill levels and should look forward to next season with confidence .
