Tycroes RFC have joined rivals Amman United in the relegation spots, despite completing the double over the team.

Tycroes ended their Division 2 West campaign at Cwmamman Park with a 24-0 win against their local rivals.

Yet, this victory wasn't enough to prevent relegation as they ended four points short of safety, allowing Nantgaredig to keep their position.

Amman, the bottom side, only earned four points this season, resulting in them rooted 34 points below Tycroes.

Pontyberem joins the two as the final relegated side.

Sion James made a triumphant start in the Tycroes back row along with Dylan Lewis and captain Sam Icke, who performed impressively throughout the match.

Amman started the game strongly, their front row – Dylan James, George Clarke, and Rhys Phillips – held their own in the scrums.

Nevertheless, their promising chances were squandered; Alun Lewis and Iestyn Griffiths both missed golden opportunities to pull ahead.

Tycroes, who started tentatively, took the lead against the flow of the game when Geraint Rees scored a 45-yard penalty.

Despite losing permit hooker Osian Jones to a leg injury, Tycroes were on the ascendancy with Icke asserting his leadership on the field.

Their advantage was solidified when Amman went a man down after Ollie Rice-Newton received a yellow card for an off-ball tackle.

With half-time approaching, Icke scored a try, extended by Geraint Rees’ conversion to take Tycroes 10-0 up at the break.

Amman battled hard in their final home fixture.

Despite good work from Dan Jones, captain Tom Thorneycroft, and permit scrum-half Lee Evans, they spent much of their second half fending off Tycroes who started to dominate late on.

Amman's defence, weakened by another yellow card for hooker George Clarke, could not repel Tycroes's unremitting attacks, resulting in two late tries for Tycroes, both converted by Rees and ultimately sealing their victory.

Amman United will finish their season on Saturday, travelling to face Fishguard & Goodwick.
