Division Three West A: Cardigan 13-0 Laugharne

Cardigan player coach Colin Davies admitted he was 'over the moon' after his side ground out a win over Laugharne in torrential weather on Saturday.

Tries from Davies himself and Andrew Fletcher set up the win to take Cardigan up to fifth and above the Cocklemen in the table.

"I've over the moon with the character of the boys," he told Telegraph Sport.

"Conditions were hard for both sides but we seamed to adapt better. In recent games I’m seeing a lot of positives and a lot what we’ve been working on in last 18 months is coming into fruition."

The Teifisiders had put 100 points on St Davids the week before but this was always going to be a much tougher test, but they led 8-0 at the interval.

And although Laugharne had second use of the elements they were unable to break down a stubborn home defence which was well organised by skipper John Lumb alongside the tackling of Emyr Harries, Llyr Jones, Rhydian Jenkins and 18 year old Joe Mansfield.

It was No 8 Davies who scored Cardigan’s opening try as he brushed off several tackles before sliding over after good work up front by Will Brice, Bedwyr Davies, Tom Taylor and Gruff Lewis – while centre Harries kicked a first half penalty.

Veteran prop Fletcher added the second try in similar fashion after half backs Tom Dunn and Iwan John regularly kicked Cardigan into good positions.

The Cocklemen couldn't respond - and both sides would have been relieved to be back in the changing rooms after a testing 80 minutes!
