Llanybydder 9 - Aberaeron 23

The heavy rain and blustery wind made running rugby difficult at Parc OJ,  but credit to both teams for giving maximum effort in the conditions.    Llanybydder have been depleted by injuries and unavailability in recent matches,  whilst Aberaeron have enjoyed an excellent run of form in recent weeks, and looked a well-drilled outfit.   The home side had first use of the strong wind,  but Aberaeron kept possession well, securing their line-outs, leading to 2 tries from close range to their effective No 8 Tudur Jenkins.     Both fly-halves were excellent in their place kicking with Rhodri Jenkins claiming 2 conversions and a penalty for Aberaeron, whilst Steff Richards kicked 3 penalties for the home side to give a half-time score of 17 – 9 to the visitors.  Llanybydder played better against the elements in the second period,  but solid defence by Aberaeron ensured that they didn’t trouble the scorers.  The visitors extended their lead with 2 further penalties for Jenkins to secure a well deserved 23 – 9 victory.      

LLanybydder’s next match is away at Tregaron on 29th December, and the coaches will be hopeful that a few players will soon be returning from injuries to boost the squad.
