Division One West Weekend Review

Glynneath maintained their seven point advantage at the summit of One West after they racked up their 12th win in 13 starts with a 25-10 home triumph over Kenfig Hill.

The hosts bagged the maximum points thanks to touchdowns from Ashley Morgan, Craig Moses, Ben Jones and Shaun Tennant, while Rhodri Cole added the extras to one and a penalty.

Kidwelly's Jason Smith was outstanding in attack  for the hosts.

High-fliers Kidwelly kept the pressure on the leaders with a 56-11 win over Llangennech at Parc Stephens.

The Black and Ambers helped themselves to nine tries in all in a strong second half showing, while the visitors' indiscipline cost them heavily with them having to play the final quarter with just 13 men.

Wing Luke Marshall bagged a brace for the Black and Ambers

Winger Jake Randall was a hat-trick hero for the hosts while Luke Marshall on the opposite flank bagged a brace. Stuart Morris, Richard Pearce and Andrew Francis also got on the score sheet as they notched up their tenth success of the season.

Llangennech found it hard to breakdown a dogged Kidwelly defence

Meanwhile, Waunarlwydd’s title aspirations received a hammer blow after the third placed side lost out at home to Whitland 13-8.

The Borderers crossed early on through Jack Mason and never surrendered their lead, with James Stephenson adding the extras and two penalties to pick up a hard-fought win.

Waun’s solitary try came through fly half Josh Hammett with Lee Evans slotting the conversion, but despite dominating both territory and possession they failed to breakdown the visitors' determined defence.

Jack Wilson notched up 15 points from the tee as Carmarthen Athletic claimed their seventh win of the season with a 30-17 win at Ammanford.

Athletic outscored their rivals three tries to two with touchdowns from Rhys Evans, Steff Phillips and Joel James.

Elsewhere, Cwmllynfell cantered to a 28-17 win over strugglers Crymych. The Blues crossed four times through Gareth Drewson (2), Matt Steinman and Aled Williams.
In the day’s other fixture, Builth Wells leapfrogged rivals Loughor in the table thanks to a 27-13 victory for the Bulls. Ben Duggan (2), Luke Offa, Pete Owen and Mike Powell all getting on the score sheet for the hosts.
