Dunvant 2nds lose away to Kenfig Hill away 21-12

Dunvant 2nds control the first half with a dominate scrum but lose the second half to give Kenfig Hill the win 21-12

With the fixture in doubt with mid-week snow and then worries that the pitch would not defrost, the conditions were surprisingly good with the Sun shining and the game being played on a flat and wide parks pitch.

Dunvant had the best of the opening encounters and quickly enforced their dominate scrum. However, the home side playing against the wind counter attack well and were not afraid to run the ball from deep. Although it was Dunvant who scored first, with pressure being put on a defensive 5-yard line out, that was tapped back awkwardly for the scrum half. Rhys Barrow reacting first and poached the try as the ball rolled over the line. The conversion was missed so Dunvant led 0-5.

Dunvant were in control helped by the wind behind them and the supremacy in the scrum. However, Kenfig’s defence held up strong. The next score came again to Rhys Barrow who pressured some handling mistakes as Kenfig tried to clear their lines and again snatched the try as the ball got knocked over the Kenfig line. This time Dannie White converted, and the lead was stretched to 0-12.

Just before half time injuries in the Kenfig front row meant that the scrummage had to be declared passive. This took a large weapon away from Dunvant. Half time saw the returning
Callum Irvine replace Danny Davies in the centre.

Kenfig had the wind in the second half and guaranteed clean possession from the scrummage. This resulted in them camping in the Dunvant half and piling on the pressure. Dunvant struggled to clear their lines and move out of their own half. Eventually Kenfig scored a try that was also converted. This galvanised the home side and they now looked the team more likely to score next.

The try came around the 65 min mark and Kenfig moved into a 2-point lead with the successful conversion. Dunvant tried to break the line and bounce back but the home side held strong. Replacements came onto the field for Dunvant to add some fresh legs. These were John Wyatt, Conner Phillips and Jonny Jones. Although this was to no avail as Kenfig sealed the match with a last minute try and conversion making the final score 21-12.

Kenfig showed why they are within the top two of this division with a great second half display. However, Dunvant hope to improve and put in an 80 min performance when the two sides meet again in two weeks’ time at Broadarce (16th Feb). This should be a good day with the firsts also home against Crymych.
