Division Three West A: Aberaeron 19-11 Milford Haven

The title race in Division Three West A will go down to the wire after Aberaeron overcame Milford in another physical clash between the two.

But things are now in the hands of Mid Wales sides, although they still trail Milford by nine points with two games in hand.  Justin Lloyd’s team will still need four bonus point wins from four games to guarantee first place though, and have difficult trips to Laugharne and Neyland to come.

It was centre Dyfrig Dafis who again showed his class as he cut over for a first half try but the Mariners dug deep to lead 6-5 half time, with scrum half Dan McClelland kicking two penalties.

The home side turned the screw early in the second half though and two periods of pressure resulted in penalties which outside half Rhodri Jenkins landed to make it 11-6 – only for Milford to level matters as flanker Ryan Mansell continued his try scoring form with a five pointer.

However, Dafis then went over as Aberaeron regained a five point lead and with time running out, Jenkins was taken out by a high tackle but Dylan Morgan was unperturbed as he stepped up to land the long range penalty.

Crucially, that kick cost Milford a losing bonus point and no team has any margin for error in their final fixtures.

Milford Haven: Steve Martin, Craig Thomas, Dan Jenkins, Dan Birch, Jamie Lewis, Efan Morgan, Dan McClelland, Mike Cockburn, Luke Ryan, Nathan Williams, David Round, Dewi Williams, Ben Groves, Ryan Mansell, Mark Wonnacott. Replacements:  Adam Rees, Chris Hall, Sam Dolling, James Trueman, Dean McSparron.
