Division Six West

St Davids 7 Llandybie 48

Table-topping Llandybie travelled to the cathedral city keen to add five more points to their season’s total and give them a timely boost before they host Burry Port on Saturday in a likely decide the Division Six West championship.

The visitors opened the game with two early tries from centres Tom Rees and Huw Williams but their cavalier attitude of throwing the ball about soon brought St Davids back into the game with a fine opportunist try of their own.

Mike Tench - with a 25-yard burst for the line - calmed nerves before half-time and clearly the messages from the coaching staff for a more structured approach saw a much improved second half performance.

The front row held up well considering flanker Mike Tench played hooker while hooker Rhys Cann moved to prop. Captain Andrew Thomas and Dan Wigley ruled the line-outs giving plenty of possession to the backs.

St Davids could not cope with Llandybie’s superior back division and further tries came at regular intervals in the second half with a brace from Tracey Lewis and three length-of-the-field efforts from Josh Williams and Tom Rees - the latter completing his hat-trick on the day. Luke Yelland added four conversions.

Second row Dan Wigley was given man of the match for the second week running.

Next Saturday’s game versus Burry Port is sure to attract a good crowd to Woodfield Road with kick-off scheduled for 2.30pm.
