Llanelli Wanderers 32-12 Pembroke

With just 15 minutes to go Pembroke looked to be hanging on for a crucial win in Llanelli Wanderers before the home side scuppered their hopes with three late tries.

The Scarlets were 5-0 down within 60 seconds as home winger Leon Randall crossed but with a strong wind behind them, fought back when returning full back Dan Colley cut into the line to score from 20 metres out.

Wanderers full back Lewis Jones kicked two penalties to make it 11-5 but the visitors had the half time lead when winger Geraint Powell went over and No 10 Kyren Gray converted.

The Scarlets then withstood huge pressure for much of the second half before Joe Chiffi eventually broke their resolve with a try that Jones converted, and then a pivotal few minutes followed where the away side were held up over the line and then wasted a chance from a five metre scrum.

The Wanderers went back up the field and Chiffi’s centre partner Rhydian Morgan crossed to seal the win and Jones added the extras, as he did when outside half Callum Harries also ghosted over late on.

“I'm proud of the effort. We defended really well second half and we didn’t deserve that scoreline,” said Pembroke forwards coach Kyle Davies.

“Against the wind we couldn’t get hold of the ball though and eventually it told.”

It's now a do or die game for Pembroke this coming Saturday at home to Gowerton, who sit two places and nine points above them in the table.
