Carmarthen Athletic 35 - Llanybydder 6

Division 2 West

Carmarthen  Athletic   35         Llanybydder  6   

The Athletic showed why they are one of the promotion favourites with a comfortable victory over a gritty Llanybydder .    They scored 5 converted tries as they varied their play well in the heavy conditions,   the visitors replying with 2 penalties for fly-half Steff Richards.      Left wing Gethin Francis opened the scoring after a flowing three quarter move,  with excellent No 8 Richard Bloomfield adding the second from close range.   Llanybydder openside Liam Fitzpatrick was then red carded following a fracas, with the home team’s Josh Watson yellow carded in the same incident.       Soon after his return right wing Watson intercepted a Llanybydder backs move and ran in a try from half-way.     Then on the stroke of half-time , following a period of pressure, home full-back Robbie Thomas crossed for the bonus point try.

Credit must be given to the visitors as they battled bravely in the second period to avoid a heavier defeat.   The pack won a fair share of possession , with scrum-half Jac Thomas varying play well, however the well-drilled Athletic defence gave no opportunities.    The only score of the half went to right  wing Watson to give a final score of  35 – 6.      Next week,  Llanybydder entertain Pontyberem in a League encounter,  the first of three consecutive home League matches
