Pembroke Dock Quins 24 Llanybydder 48

Llanybydder travelled to the Quins’  Bierspool ground looking to regroup after the previous weekend’s defeat at Neyland.    The home side have had a difficult start to the season, having lost a number of players to other clubs,  but they showed great effort and commitment throughout the match,  trying to play at a high tempo.   However the visitors had a bit more organization, and took an early lead when fly-half Llyr Tobias spotted a gap in midfield to cross for the first try.   It was an eventful first half for visiting full-back Dan Garside, after an early yellow card for a high tackle. Garside returned to the pitch to run in 2 long range tries as he supported his back-line.  There was further try for centre Steff Richards as he re-gathered his chip over the on-rushing home defence.  Richards converted all 4 tries.    The Quins replied with a try for full-back Rhys Bradney and lock Josh White, both converted by Bradney to give a half-time score of 28 – 14 to the visitors.

The open rugby continued in the second period with the home side claiming 2 more tries through lock Ben Gibby and prop Dean Wilcox.  However,  Llanybydder maintained their lead through 2 penalties from Richards,   and further tries from scrum-half Llyr James from a quick tap penalty, and No 8 Bleddyn Jones as he supported a backs move.   There were 2 further conversions from Steff Richards to give him a personal tally of 23 points, as the visitors won by 48 – 24, with both teams claiming a bonus point.

Next week,  Llanybydder travel to Llanelli to play New Dock Stars in the WRU Bowl competition
