The first XV entertained Nantgaredig last Saturday in a first ever meeting between our two clubs. The Carmarthenshire club were winners of division six west last season, by a twelve point margin, having won sixteen of their eighteen league matches and sta
We kicked off the second half and went straight on the attack with first Dan Holohan and then TOM PUGH being tackled on the visitor’s goal line. Then after two penalty awards on the 5 metre line, our reward came as BEN DAVIES scored our second try near the posts, Tom Edmunds again converted and with the second half less than five minutes old, we led 14 – 13. We again attacked and following a spell in the opposition’s twenty two, Tom Edmunds kicked a 30 metre penalty to extend our lead to 17 – 13 with half an hour to play. Play moved mainly between the two twenty two metre lines in the remainder of the half as our defence prevented the visitors establishing a platform to attack our line and their kicks downfield were either returned with interest or run back to good effect.
We made two further replacements with Jordan St. John coming on for Dai Lees on the hour mark and Mark Davies for Dan Holohan with ten minutes left. The final whistle came with us again camped on the Nantgaredig twenty two and a first victory of the season by 17 – 13 had been achieved.
