Llanybydder 14 - Tumble 16

Llanybydder welcolmed Tumble  to Parc OJ , with players welcoming a match after a period of inactivity after postponements. In a very even match, it was the visitors who took the lead with a penalty from Leighton McKenna. The home side replied with a period of pressure and were rewarded when full-back Steff Davies hit a good angle from a pass from scrum-half Llyr James to cross for a try, which he converted himself. Tumble’s well-drilled driving lineout became more effective,  and hooker Dafydd Humphreys benefited for a try to make the half-time score  8 – 7 to the visitors. 

The home side started the second half well,  and it was in form No 8 Ricky Davies who crossed from close range, converted by full-back Davies. McKenna replied with a penalty to leave the home side leading 14 – 11. Both teams squandered opportunities, and with time running out, Tumble had one final opportunity with a lineout five metres from the line.  Their forwards secured the ball, and drove forward leading to the crucial score for hooker Humphreys.  The conversion was missed , but the Tumble forwards had secured a 16 – 14 victory.  

Llanybydder ‘s next match is at Carmarthen Athletic on March 4th.
