Amman United's wait for a first Division 2 West victory goes on after they were beaten on their trip to Pontyberem, who completed the double over the Cwmamman Park men following a very tight comeback win in the corresponding fixture.

The bottom of the table side competed well in the first half, giving as good as they got against the Heol y Parc outfit, and it was deserved when Amman led 7-6 after a tight first half, with back row powerhouse Alun Lewis crossing for the only try. Adrian Thomas' conversion meant Clwb yr Aman were ahead at the break. Full back Rhodri Lewis kept the home side in touch with a brace of early penalties.

But Pontyberem managed to up a gear after the interval and got on top against the Reds. Gerwyn Lynch's try put "Y Glasadu" into the lead, Rhodri Lewis converting before second row Daniel Morgans' score increased their advantage, Lewis again adding the extras.

The United defence was breached once again when centre Mike Jenkins crossed the whitewash and there was still time for the hosts to snatch a bonus point, some good play before centre Cory Hardy finished off the move with the try, Lewis again converting.

Busy flanker Brychan Thomas was named man of the match and presented with the champers afterwards by sponsors Nisa Local Drefach and Crwydriaid Crwbin.

Final score: Pontyberem 33 – 7 Amman United.

Amman go again, and will be at home on Friday evening, February 2, when they welcome Carmarthen Athletic to Cwmamman Park for a rescheduled fixture, kick off at 7pm under the lights.

Amman meanwhile are so proud of three members of their under 11 squad: Wil Elliott, Afa-Haf Lewis and Ifan Williams, who represented the MMAD against Newport on Saturday.

Cwmgors RFC were at the wrong end of a real thumping in Division 3 West Central, the Cherries rather blown away at division leaders Abercrave, who put up a clinical display. Flanker Luc Gwilym led the way with a hat trick of tries in an 89-12 demolition. Also crossing for the home side were wing Dewi Pritchard (two tries), captain Jonathan Hapgood (two tries), lock Cian Gwilym (two tries), Cellan Davies, Connor Hughes, Jake Carroll, Liam Price, Tyler Lewis and Leighton Llewelyn in a 15-try romp.

For Cwmgors, Joseff Davies crossed for a try following good work by Jac Evans and his forwards, while there was also an opportunist try scored by Jordan Smith who ran in from halfway after an interception.

Final score: Abercrave 89 – 12 Cwmgors.
