Division One West Round Up

Early pace setters Glynneath maintained their winning start to their One West title challenge as they edged past Whitland 15-5.

In what was a tense affair, Glynneath’s Jack O’Riley was once again the hero of the day, with the fly half firing over five penalties to ensure his side bagged their fourth straight victory.

The Borderers' only points came from a Jack Mason touchdown.

At the double: Kidwelly's Carwyn Thomas bagged a brace for the Black and Ambers.
Carwyn Thomas was at the double for Kidwelly as the Black and Ambers dispatched Loughor 33-9 at Villa Field.

The visitors crossed three times with scrum half Thomas bagging a brace, with his first touchdown the score of the match. Loughor fly half Liam Popham grubbered the ball into Kidwelly’s half, as Thomas scrambled back to retrieve it who then, under great pressure, managed to slide and turn back onto his feet before using his skill to evade all of his pursuers and cross the whitewash.

 The visitors' other try came from centre Andy Francis, while fly half Stuart Morris fired over four penalties and converted all three touchdowns for a personal haul of 18 points.

Kidwelly's centre Daf Latham was a constant threat in attack.

The Blues, who sit bottom with just one victory, could only manage two penalties from Peter Smiriglia and a further one from Andrew Williams.

Waunarlwydd bounced back from their defeat at Builth Wells as they recorded a comfortable 37-10 triumph over Llangennech.

Jason Hyatt’s men outscored their rivals four tries to one with touchdowns from Dan Fox, Andrew Rees-Spowatt, Guy Jones and Josh Hammett, while Lee Evans notched up 17 points with the boot.

Meanwhile, new boys Crymych turned on the style as they helped themselves to seven tries to dispatch Ammanford 49-21.

Gavin Thomas grabbed a try treble for the hosts while Guto Griffiths(2), Adam Phillips and Rhys Davies also went over.

Last season’s runners up Cwmllynfell notched up their third win of the season as they saw off new boys Builth Wells 30-19.

Cwmllynfell crossed twice through wing Ryan Bayliss and Matthew Steinman, while Luke Myat fired over six penalties and a conversion.

Elsewhere, in a tight contest Kenfig Hill did just enough to pick up a 23-20 triumph at Carmarthen Athletic.

The Mules ran in three tries through Ray Evans, Steve Gillard and Matthew Davies, while Nicky Giles added a conversion and two penalties.

Athletic had to make do with just a losing bonus point, despite leading 17-10 at the interval.
