Match Report

Bridgend 30 – 4 Llandovery

The atrocious weather conditions resulted in this Cup game being abandoned after 64 minutes, at which point Bridgend had notched up 6 tries (3 in the space of 5 minutes) and three conversions, against one try by Llandovery.

Llandovery had a good first 10 minutes, and also finished the (shortened) game strongly, scoring their try in this final period.

Bridgend had built up a lead of 16-0 after 20 minutes, but dogged Llandovery defence then kept the score constant until halftime.

In the second period Ian Jones and Wyn Williams, a hardworking 2nd row combination for Llandovery, could not secure much lineout ball. The visitors’ score came when outstanding No 8 Dai Giles fed scrum half Eifion Hughes, who sent in replacement wing Martin Rees for a try in the corner. But this was followed by 3 more Bridgend tries.

Ex-Llandovery fly half Aled Williams contributed one of the six Bridgend tries against his old comrades.

Llandovery team:
Geraint Williams, Huw Morgans, Huw Thomas, Alun Thomas, Arwel Rowlands (rep Martin Rees), Carwyn Williams, Eifion Hughes

Phil Davies, Wyn Morgan, Dai Thomas, Ian Jones, Wyn Williams, Elfyn Jenkins, Chris Davies (capt), Dai Giles
