Match Report

Pontypool 41 - 12 Llandovery

Pontypool returned to winning ways after a meagre return of just a single point from their previous two matches. The game never scaled the heights but Pontypool will be happy with six tries with none conceded, while fly-half Stuart Lawrence chipped in with four conversions and a dropped goal to take his season’s tally to 91 from seven outings.

Pontypool scored three tries before the interval through prop Uiniati Moa, centre Lee Jones and full-back Scott Mitchell, with lock Jared Nolan, wing Chris Batsford and replacement back Neil McKim crossing during the second half.

All the visitors’ points came from first half penalties - full-back Peter Lloyd grabbing a hat-trick and outside-half Dai Lloyd-Jones landing another long-range effort to restrict Pontypool to a 21-12 interval lead.

Llandovery had a scare right at the end when their skipper David Giles was left lying motionless on the ground after a heavy tackle. Thankfully, the No 8 recovered following a long period of treatment which continued well after the final whistle.
