Division Three West A: Neyland 14-36 Laugharne

Laugharne were made to stave off a second half fightback from Neyland but in the end The Cocklemen proved too strong as they took a bonus point win.

The visitors surged into a 24-0 lead early in the second half before The All Blacks notched two converted tries, but the visitors finished with two late scores themselves to seal matters.

It was No 8 Mike Williams who put Laugharne in control early on with two powerful finishes for tries, one converted by centre Tom Jameson.

The Laugharne scrum was dominant for much of the 80 minutes and it was from this platform they added a third score, after an eight man shove forced the Neyland pack into infringing and yielded a penalty try.

Will Evans continued his scoring form with a try after the break but Neyland were threatening themselves and looked sharp out wide.

And after being repelled by an organised away defence they eventually crossed when skipper George Williams cut over, and minutes later centre partner Adam Collins, who was called in at short notice, also went over.

Toby Hayman converted both tries to make it 24-14 but the home side had second row Mark ‘Russell’ James yellow carded, then Evans crossed again to end any hopes of a comeback. Jack Flanagan rounded off the Laugharne win with a try that Jameson converted.

“Laugharne were well worth the win but the boys put in a lot of effort with quite a few missing,” said Neyland assistant coach Steve Evans.

Neyland: Henry McBeth, Sean Meaney, Sam Cataki, Adam Collins, George Williams, Toby Hayman, Mark Riley, Luke Dawes, Richard Banner, Craig Power, Mark James, Steve Hamer, Ben Williams, Owain Evans, Iestyn Evans. Replacements (all played): Shane Phillips, Chris Busby, John Tennick, Sam Hadley.
