Division Two West: Kidwelly 17-34 Milford Haven

It was a landmark win for Milford Haven as they not only completed the double over Kidwelly but in doing so, claimed their first away win since being promoted to Division Two West.

And The Mariners were good value for the victory, digging deep after trailing 17-12 in the early stages of the second half.

They led 12-10 half time after tries from two of their best performers in flanker Zac Davies and winger James Williams, while No 10 James Trueman added a conversion.

For Kidwelly, Matthew Davies grabbed a try while James Owens kicked a conversion and a penalty.

The Ambers then took the lead after the break as Ryan Jenkins crossed and Owens again added the extras.

But it was Milford who dominated the final quarter as No 8 Sam Dolling made frequent inroads with ball in hand and the returning Dai Sweeney made an impact up front off the bench, and they scored three more tries through centre Dan Jenkins, scrum half Dan McClelland, and replacement winger Lee Riley.

Trueman added one more conversion and Steve Martin, who was also outstanding in the final stages after switching from 15 to 10, also landed one as well as kicking a difficult penalty.

The win takes Milford eighth ahead of a tough run of fixtures, with their next three games against each of the current top three.

“It was a very good win and just we needed,” said head coach Nathan ‘Gully’ Williams.

“The boys were outstanding in patches. Still have things to work on but it’s another step forward.”
