6th placed Dunvant host 11th placed Ammanford at Broadacre this Saturday with Ammanford still hunting their first league win of the season

It is 10 years since our teams last met in Division 2 West for season 2009/10. Dunvant were in decline at the time have been relegated from Division 1 in 8/9 and were again relegated to Division 3 in 9/10. Ammanford were going the other way, having been promoted from 3 West the season before and also being the first winners of the Swalec Plate in 8/9
This season with 3 games played, Ammanford have lost all three, losing narrowly 21-20 at Bridgend Athletic, 24-29 at home to Brynamman and last weekend 6-44 at home to Kenfig Hill. With 4 tries and 2 losing bonus points they are in 11th place seeking their first league win. . They did win their 1st round Plate match 24-43 at Bridgend Sports which will have boosted their morale
Dunvant, hit by injuries, have not found their true form yet but the team have battled hard in every game. We narrowly lost at Glynneath, had a great home win 34-22 over Waunarlwydd followed up by a gritty 19-11 home win over Nantyffyllon in the Plate competition. Last weekend we should have won comfortably at Bridgend Sports but with 2 yellows held on to draw 20-20. With 10 tries we have 8 points for 6th place. Can home advantage give Dunvant another home win or will Ammanford get their much-needed win at Broadacre. This should be another thriller.
Our Clubhouse will be very busy on Saturday as we have 3 home games, the 2nds hosting Bonymaen and the Youth hosting Waunarlwydd so the bar & kitchen staff will be kept busy all afternoon, ( UPDATE: Youth game has been postponed to Friday 1st November)
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
