Llandovery 15 – 23 S W Police

What the Papers Say - Huw George reports

Llandovery went down to their second successive defeat of the season at Church Bank on Saturday, against a lively Police unit featuring a very powerful back row and fast, straight-running, three-quarters.

Llandovery held their own in the lines-out through some good work by Ian Jones and John Westgarth, while the front row of Paul Jones, Aled Davies and Andrew Jones provided a solid platform for some powerful scrummaging.

However, despite two breaks by Stuart Richards and Geraint John in mid-field, the backs were not able to penetrate a strong police defence.

Tries for Llandovery were scored by Arwel Rowlands and Stuart Richards, one in each half. David Lloyd-Jones kicked a penalty in the first half to make the half-time score 8-8, and Stuart Richards converted his own penalty later in the game.

But by that time all was lost, since two tries and a penalty from the Police had taken the score to 23-8.

Features of the game were the outstanding display by Police number eight Ian Hemberrow and the tackling of Llandovery's Geraint John and David Lloyd-Jones.

The Drovers are missing the generalship of injured captain Huw Thomas, but when the young side gel together, the results will surely come.
