DUNVANT HOST AN IN FORM GORSEINON AT BROADACRE (13th Apr)

By Roger Knight

4th placed Dunvant host 5th placed Gorseinon at Broadacre this Saturday ,both sides with 12 wins and 56 points, Dunvant ahead on try count 58-57.


We last met at Broadacre on Boxing Day 2017 when Gorseinon, on a run of 7 consecutive defeats to Dunvant, grabbed their Xmas present to go home with a 21-12 victory. Since we won 20-13 at the Welfare Ground on 2nd March, Gorseinon have become the top form side with 5 straight wins earning 24 points following their 0-37 victory on Wednesday night at Yr Hendy. In the process they have climbed the table from 9th to 5th with 12 wins and 7 defeats in 19 games played. There are currently only 8 points between 9th placed Crymych and 2nd placed Llangennech in what is a very tight league.. A bonus point win for any team can make a significant difference to the league table. Dunvant are currently 2nd in the form table with 19 points from our last 5 games with the defeat at Whitland. This should be a closely fought contest with our near neighbours and whoever has the loudest supporters can make a big difference to the outcome.
Elsewhere our 2nds are playing Gorseinon 2nds at the Welfare ground in a double header Ospreys West League/Swansea District A league.Dunvant Youth team travel to Aberavon Green Stars Youth in an Ospreys C league fixture. They also have a league game at Bae Baglan Campus next Wednesday night against Nantymoel Youth and would appreciate your support.
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
