Neyland 22 - LLanybydder 16

Division  3  West  A

Neyland 22      LLanybydder  16

It is always a tough match at the Athletic Ground in Neyland,  and the blustery rain and strong wind made conditions difficult for both teams in their attempts to play open rugby.    The home side started well and were rewarded when lively right wing Patrick Bellerby made a strong midfield run to cross for the opening try,  converted by fly-half Mark  Riley.   Llanybydder  then settled,  and a good run by centre Arwel Thomas took play deep into the home 22.     Further pressure by the visitors led to 2 penalties for centre Steff Richards  to give a score of 7  -  6    at the interval.

Neyland controlled possession and territory for most of the second period, with forwards and backs combining well.   They were rewarded with 2 tries for Number 8 Ben Williams and another for replacement hooker Richard Jones as they claimed a bonus point.   However, the visitors , missing a few regulars,  responded with a late try for scrum half Llyr James, with an excellent conversion by Richards securing the losing bonus point.  

Next week, Llanybydder return to South Pembrokeshire to visit Pembroke Dock Harlequins
