Match Report

Llandovery 10 - 17 Bedwas

What the Papers Say – Huw S Thomas reports:

The WRU intention to reduce the Premiership to 10 teams next year was the main talking point at Church Bank but it did not detract from an open game of rugby played in perfect conditions.

Without anyone fully understanding how the WRU will choose the Super 10, speculation was rife over the future of Llandovery and Bedwas, both in the bottom half of the league.

Bedwas started off with a bang – a sweeping back move producing a try for wing Elliot Foils, converted from wide out by full-back Stuart Thomas but the Drovers were soon level with a try from centre Adam Warren, converted by fly-half Howard Thomas.

Chances came and went on both sides but it was Bedwas who got a score just before the break when scrum-half James Pizey took a quick penalty to dive over and let Thomas convert.

The Thomas boys swapped penalties but the Bedwas forwards started to have an edge in the loose as the game drew to a close.

The defensive kicking of Lee Rees saved many a tricky situation for The Drovers, Stuart Thomas missed with two penalties, but Bedwas were value for their win.
