Well earned success

Llangwm 0 Aberaeron 29

Despite the emphatic scoreline this was indeed a hard earned success as the heavy conditions following an overnight downpour proved a real leveller which allowed Llangwm to compete admirably, especially in the first period with Aberaeron unable to exercise their normal expansive display. The hosts belied their lowly league position and it needed a strong defensive effort from Seagulls to keep their line intact in the first half and this despite taking the lead in a rare foray into the opponents 22.The early score had come from a series of forward drives which created a penalty that outside half Rhodri Jenkins neatly placed close to the line and from the ensuing lineout the huge frame of prop Mathew Roberts crossed the whitewash for his first of the campaign. Whilst Jenkins had a rare off day with the boot , mainly due to the conditions underfoot, his defensive display typified the team's ethos and he dictated much of the encounter especially the second half, secure in defence whilst always looking to create openings. Captain Sion Evans would also be proud of his fellow forwards with a solid scrum and more than capable lineout where old head Tudur Jenkins and young Llyr Davies took the honours. After that difficult opening period it was a typical Jenkins break minutes after the turnaround that created panic in the Wasps defence and from the resultant scramble they could not prevent scrum half Gareth James on his first outing from adding the second try. That beckoned a real change in fortunes with centre Dafydd Llewelyn taking centre stage with a solo performance to admire. Mid way through the second period a searing break from within his own half left defenders flailing which created an opening to cross in the corner for the third try of the afternoon. There was not long to wait for the fourth try and it was one that defied the conditions – Jenkins breaking strongly from his own 22 and linking with Llewellyn who again cut loose down the left before supplying the inside pass to Ollie Sawyer to score allowing Jason Freeman to add the conversion. With the bonus point secured Llewelyn again bamboozled the defence from halfway weaving past defenders to add his second of the afternoon. Jenkins touchline conversion brought the contest to conclusion and there was more than a sense of satisfaction in what had been a difficult afternoon, but with an added bonus point success for the long trip home..
