Division Three West A: Milford 119-5 St Davids

James Trueman broke a Milford Haven club record with an amazing haul of 49 points as league leaders Milford Haven were truly ruthless against struggling St Davids.

Outside half Trueman crossed for three tries but even more remarkably, landed 17 out of 17 conversions, including numerous efforts from out wide. His haul is also thought to be the biggest in Division Three West A since the new league was formed in the 2014/15 season.

From the first whistle The Mariners simply overran the visitors who had no answer to the power and support play of the home side as they turned a 63-5 half time lead into an eventual three figure score.

As well as Trueman, centre Dan Jenkins grabbed a try hat trick and there were also tries for his partner in midfield Dan Birch (2), returning No 8 Sam Dolling (2), second row Brandon Cooper (2), winger Jamie Lewis, flankers Ryan Mansell and Dewi Williams, scrum half Dan McClelland, and assistant coach Steve Martin who came on a full back in the second half.

There was also a first team appearance for young prop Ben Jenkins, who joined brother Dan on the field for the second half.

The Saints began with a squad of 16 but lost prop Will Davies to injury in the first half and then had centre Fraser Watson limping through the 80 minutes early hamstring injury – but did manage to raise a cheer in the first half with their only try as a burst from player coach Anthony Davies set up a try for flanker Josh Strangward.

But in all in all this was a very difficult day for the visitors.

“We played some very good rugby and there were some great tries out there today,” said Milford head coach Nathan ‘Gully’ Williams.

“Full credit to St Davids though. No matter what the circumstances they turn up for games and keep going and as a club we admire them for it.”

The Mariners now face a much bigger test of their title credentials at Laugharne on Saturday.
