Match Report

Treorchy 34 - 19 Llandovery

After running league leaders Cross Keys close last week, Treorchy showed that they really are on an upsurge of form with a solid victory over struggling Llandovery at The Oval. Richard Langmead, who has made the fly-half berth his own after struggling to gain an early-season place, starred with 24 points from a try, two conversions and five penalties.

The Drovers are a struggling side, but in centre Geraint John they have a player of flair and vision as he showed to score one try and create two others. Langmead kicked a brace of early penalties then converted a try by centre Paul Jones who benefited from a fine break by co-centre Alan Roberts.

Treorchy increased their lead to 18-0 on the half-hour, as Langmead touched down after he had broken down the blindside and scored with the help of his back row. Langmead added the points but the visitors were on the scoreboard after a fine John try, converted by Peter Lloyd. A Langmead penalty gave the home side a 21-7 half-time cushion.

This was increased as Jones crossed for his second try, again assisted by his back row, and Langmead again converted. A fine John break enabled replacement wing Dave Kings to score a try and the same scenario brought Kings his second try, one of which Lloyd converted. Sandwiched between was another Langmead penalty and the fly-half repeated the dose as the final whistle approached to send the Treorchy faithful home happy.
