Betws 8/12/18



                              BETWS     6     LLANDYBIE    5

With a strong wind behind Betws made the most of the conditions pnnig Llandybie in their half for long periods. With a number of players crying off Llandybie’s team was a little patched up, with two wingers at centre, a full back at nine and a centre  at fly half.  However they put everything into a fine display.  Llandybie were having the better of the scrums. From a scrummage Alex Wigley put his backs in motion, with Ben Featherstone and Keri Davies moving the ball quickly to Wayne Williams in the line feeding Josh Lewis on the wing. He swerved outside his opposite number moved to come inside and then broke for the outside of the full back to score in the corner.

Betws were playing some fast rugby but Llandybie’sdefence was sound with great tackling for Lyndon Davies, Eirian Williams and Dylan Parry.Youngloose head prop Jordan Tommason is improving with each match and from a scrum down the left hand side Llandybie drove on and rumbled twenty five metres until the Betws defence brought the drive down. Llandybie were hard done by that they were not awarded a penalty try. From the resulting scrum charges from Tim Williams, Lyndon Davies, Dylan Parry, Tommason and Williams were all rebuffed by a sound Betws defence. Betws cleared their lines and went on the attack and with a try looking likely knocked the ball on. LLandybie were penalised for offside and Adrian Thomas kicked the penalty. HT  3 -  5.

The second half became a real arm wrestle with Llandybie in the assendency with the wind behind. The visitors gave another penalty and Thomas stepped up to put Betws in the lead. A lovely chip through by Lee Davies chased by Rhys Evans who was blatently tripped with nothing given. A booming sixty yard kick by Lee Davies put Llandybie within twenty yards and James Tommason, who had a fine display, took the Dan Brooks throw to set up a driving maul, which Betws again brought down.BenFeatherstone took the kick but the wind took it just wide of the upright. The visitors threw everything at Betws but they were a well drilled outfit and ran out winners despite spending most of the second half in their own half.
