Llandovery RFC has been congratulated on its success after winning the Indigo Welsh Premiership play-off final, in a close 14-7 victory against Newport.

MP Jonathan Edwards tabled an Early Day Motion in Parliament this week, paying tribute to each of the players, coaches and committee of the club for the completion of a Triple Crown of triumphs in the season, having only previously been accomplished by Pontypridd in the 20-year history of the Welsh Premiership’s current iteration.

Gareth Potter, a former Ammanford captain, has been a key influence on the Drovers as attack coach and Tom Hancock, head of rugby at Ysgol Dyffryn Aman, has done outstanding work as defence coach. Meanwhile, rugby analyst Noah Potter, younger son of Gareth, has had a huge influence on team preparations.

Props Dino Dallavalle and Llyr Green are both former pupils of the Ammanford secondary school and played key roles in the 14-7 win over Newport in the Premiership final.

Mr Edwards said: “This is a great feat for the team, as well as the greater Carmarthenshire community. The passion and dedication from all those involved is unrivalled, from the players to the fans. I wish Llandovery RFC the very best in their future as they take on a new adventure in the Elite Domestic Competition in the upcoming season.”
