Llanelli School Boys U15 5-7 Swansea School Boys U15

Swansea No8 Corey Williams attacks from the base of the scrum

Swansea School Boys Under 15s kicked their season off with a win as they overcame local rivals Llanelli by the slenderest of margins 7-5, on a wet and wild night at Cae Ffair, Trimsaran.
Despite the tricky conditions, both sides' intent to play running rugby was evident from the outset, with the two teams looking to attack at every opportunity.

With the conditions taking their toll and defences well on top, the match looked to be heading towards a stalemate but with seven minutes remaining, Swansea’s Sam Knight sparked the match into life.
Knight gathered a loose ball in his own 22 and set off on a weaving run that saw him evade several Llanelli defenders and touchdown beneath the posts. Corey Evans slotted the simplest of conversions for a 7-0 lead.

However, Llanelli immediately hit back, gaining possession from the restart as good driving work by the Llanelli pack set up a promising position. The ball was recycled and spun wide with centre Glen Williams going over out-wide, but the difficult conversion was missed and Swansea held on for victory.
