DUNVANT EDGE THE WIN AGAINST A DETERMINED LLANGENNECH DEFENCE

By

IN A HARD FOUGHT TUSSLE AT BROADACRE DUNVANT EDGED A 15-13 WIN AGAINST A TOUGH DEFENSIVE DISPLAY FROM LLANGENNECH .

DUNVANT HAD PLAYED LLANGENNECH TWICE ALREADY THIS SEASON AT BANK ROAD. IN THE WRU PLATE LLANGENNECH WON COMFORTABLY 22-5 AND IN JANUARY DUNVANT TURNED THE TABLES WITH A TIGHT 19-24 WIN. FOR THIS WEEK’S GAME WITH LLANGENNECH IN 2ND AND DUNVANT 5TH, BOTH SIDES IN SIMILAR FORM IT LOOKED AS IF IT WAS GOING TO BE ANOTHER CLOSE ONE. DUNVANT HAD TO DIG DEEP INTO THEIR PLAYER POOL WITH 4 PLAYERS STILL RECOVERING FROM THE BRUISING ENCOUNTER AT WHITLAND LAST WEEK.
LLANGENNECH KICKED OFF AND WERE AWARDED THE FIRST SCORING OPPORTUNITY ON 2 MINUTES WITH A PENALTY WHICH FULL BACK TOM NEALE WAS ABLE TO CONVERT. SOON AFTER WING RHYS DAVIES SCORCHED DOWN THE RIGHT TOUCHLINE FROM HALFWAY EVADING TWO TACKLE ATTEMPTS TO SCORE IN THE RIGHT OF THE POSTS WHICH NEALE WAS ABLE TO CONVERT TO PUT LLANGENNECH 0-7 IN THE LEAD. DUNVANT RESPONDED WITH A PENALTY FROM OUTSIDE HALF RICHARD LEWIS FOR 3-7. AS THE GAME ENTERED THE 2ND QUARTER LLANGENNECH HOOKER ALEX JONES SAW YELLOW . WITH THE MAN ADVANTAGE DUNVANT ATTACKED THE TRY LINE BUT SOME GOOD DEFENCE SAW THEM HELD UP TO THE LEFT OF THE POSTS, SCRUM DUNVANT AND THIS TIME THEY WERE HELD UP TO THE RIGHT OF THE POSTS SCRUM AGAIN AND THIS TIME SCRUM HALF BEN LEY FOUND SOME SPACE TO SCORE NEAR THE POSTS, CONVERTED BY RICHARD LEWIS FOR DUNVANT TO LEAD 10-7. WITH LLAN BACK TO 15 THE LAST PLAY OF THE 1ST HALF SAW NEALE LEVEL THE SCORE 10-10 WITH A PENALTY KICK INSIDE THE 22.
IN THE SECOND HALF BOTH SIDES SEEM D TO BE EVENLY BALANCED AND NULLIFYING ANY THREATS FROM THE OPPOSITION, BUT ON 53 MINUTES ANOTHER PENALTY FOR NEALE PUT LLAN BACK IN THE LEAD 10-13. AGAIN DUNVANT RESPONDED, ATTACKING THE OPPOSITION TRY LINE, HELD UP AGAIN , THEN HELD UP IN THE LEFT HAND CORNER, PENALTY DUNVANT, LINEOUT, AND AT LAST ON 67 MINUTES TRY BY FLANKER BEN DAVIES TO PUT DUNVANT BACK IN THE LEAD 15-13 AS LEWIS WAS UNABLE TO CONVERT. WITH 5 MINUTES TO GO LLAN HAD A PENALTY GOAL ATTEMPT FROM JUST INSIDE HALF WAY BUT NEALE WAS UNABLE TO REGAIN THE LEAD FOR HIS TEAM. DUNVANT WERE SOMEWHAT RELIEVED TO HEAR THE FINAL WHISTLE WITH PLAYER COACH CRAIG “ RIPPER” HAWKINS NAMED AS THE DUNVANT RUGBY CLUB SINGERS MAN OF THE MATCH.
