1st XV v Aberearon 9th Feb 2019

Aberaeron 55 - Llangwm 0

Aberaeron took another step up the table with a comprehensive win over a gritty Llangwm team which never gave up trying but after trailing 17-0 at half time conceded another six scores after the break.

It helped Aberaeron move into fourth place in the table but with plenty of games in hand over Haverfordwest and Neyland, the teams above them, but still a little way adrift of leaders Milford Haven.

Llangwm were able to make the long journey with three replacements and able to have contested scrums thanks to their experienced front row of Gavin Jones, skipper Gethin Thomas and Declan Cole – but with regular wingers Daniel Morgan and Spencer Rourke bravely battling along in the second row, which inevitably added a little pressure to the covering ability of Rhys Thomas and both James Lewis in the back row.

George Morgan, Matthew Lewis and Dan Ridge never gave up in the covering stakes whilst halves Ian Griffiths and Luke Hayman were always looking to utilise any ball they were given, regularly trying to call Joe Lewin and Lewis Murphy into play.

James Griffiths and Kieran Barclay came off the bench to help but a try brace apiece from  flanker Gethin Dafis and full back Ollie Sawyer, plus others by winger Dyfrig Dafis, No 8 Tudur Jenkins, full back Morgan Llewellyn and winger Rhodri Thomas, five of them converted by Rhydian Johns took Aberaeron to victory, with the home supporters’ loudest cheer reserved for Owen Wozencroft  as he came on at prop and scored from his very first touch.
