St Davids 3 - Llanybydder 52

St  Davids  3     Llanybydder  52

Llanybydder  made the long journey to St Davids,  with both clubs looking to avenge disappointing defeats from the previous weekend.   The pitch was in excellent condition, but a strong breeze  and heavy drizzle made handling difficult.     Possession was shared equally between the 2 forward packs,   but the visiting backs had the pace and skill to exploit the gaps in the home defence, with full back Llyr Tobias enjoying several runs as he returned kicks with interest.   Classy right wing Ross Holder scored the first try , whilst Tobias crossed for the second.    Matty McLeod replied with a penalty before Llanybydder flanker Liam Fitzpatrick scored a try following a quick tap penalty.   2 conversions by fly-half Steff Richards led to a half-time score of 19  -  3 to the visitors.

The home side continued to battle bravely during the second period,  keeping possession for long periods, but did not penetrate the Llanybydder defence.   Several strong runs by visiting forwards Rhys Morris and Bleddyn Jones  provided forward momentum,  and both were rewarded with tries at start of second half.   Wing Holder claimed his 2nd try after a fine cross-field kick by Richards.   Further late tries were added by flankers Bleddyn Jones and Fitzpatrick as the home side tired.     4 conversions by Steff Richards gave a final score of 52 – 3 to the visitors.

Llanybydder are without a League fixture this weekend,  before entertaining Aberaeron on 15th December .
