Llangadog 28/9/19




Llangadog played with a strong wind at their backs and soon put pressure on Llandybie. A few missed tackles out wide gave away a penalty. Gadog kicked to touch and from the throw set up a driving maul which the visitors countered, but runners kept coming to force their way over for a try by Huw sparks converted by Dafydd Jenkins.  From the restart Llandybie made ground with a carry by Jordan Tommason,from the ruck going left but changed direction with a wild pass and Gadog gained possession for Dylan Morgan to make the line after two missed tackles converted by Jenkins. Llandybie found themselves 14 – 0 down after nine minutes.

Llandybie fought back from a line out take by Mike Tench ,Leighton Rees put the ball left and captain Rhys Evans split the defence to run through for a good try converted by Ben Featherstone.

Llandybie broke the line again but the final pass was deemed forward. It was nip and tuck until half time with the visitors exerting the pressure. Half time 14  - 7.

From the restart Gadog gathered and three missed tackles again put them forty yards upfield and from a couple of rucks went over for an early try. A yellow card for Rees forced Llandybie into a few positional changes.  A penalty converted by Jenkins increased Llangadog’s lead. From  a  lineout Josh Cranfield filling in at second row made a good run, brought down short. Two penalties to Gadog helped them clear their lines. Lyndon Davies and Dan Brooks were carrying well and from a scrum Mathew Lloyd gave the ball to Nathaniel Butler  with a lot to do, but his aggression took him over the whitewash with three opponents hanging to him. From a good clearance from Alex Wigley, Steffan Thomas found  Ioan Rees and the ball was moved crossfield to Rhys Evans to Featherstone on the wing who made good ground before passing inside to Evans to score his second try. Llandybie only one score behind. Wigley again kicked for touch from a penalty at the death but the throw in went astray and the visitors ran out of time. Another loss, albeit a narrow one, but the missed tackles are costing the Llandybie team dear especially early on in games, which means they are chasing the games too often. Next Saturday Llandybie are away to Llandeilo.
