Division One West Weekend Review

Leaders Glynneath extended their advantage at the summit of One West to eleven points as they defeated the weather and Builth Wells to maintain their so far imperious assault on the title
With the wet and windy weather putting paid to all but two matches in the division Glynneath took full advantage as they defied the conditions to grab a 38-12 win.
The unbeaten pacemakers were far too strong for their hosts and helped themselves to five tries in all through Dale Ewell, Keir Burrow, Jordan Griffiths, Josh Jones and Corey Jenkins. Fly-half Jack O’Reilly added 13 points from the tee through three penalties and two conversions.
Glynneath will now look to take their unbeaten form into Cup action next weekend when they host Three South West’s Morriston in the third round of the Swalec Plate.

In the only other fixture to make it to the pitch, Kidwelly claimed a nail biting 26-25 win over Ammanford at Parc Stephens.
It was the visitors who held a slender 13-12 advantage at the interval as they went in search of only their second success of the season, but it was the Black and Ambers who eventually came out on top despite being outscored three tries to two.
Ammanford outscored Kidwelly by three tries to two
Paul John was at the double for Kidwelly, while Jamie Evans was the stand-out performer as he notched up 16 points from the tee, converting both conversions and landing four penalties.

Despite pushing the highfliers close, it was once again heartbreak for Ammanford as they had to make do with just a losing bonus point. Craig Woodall, Rhodri Jones and Gary Stephens all went over for the visitors while Ceri Rees kicked ten points, but it was not enough to see them avoid their eleventh defeat in 12 starts.
