Scarlets storm to deserved success


Crymych 0 - Pembroke 50

Pembroke showed what a potent force they are going to be with this commanding performance at Crymych which saw them reach a half century of points before the game ended.

A young home side couldn’t be faulted for effort but Pembroke showed their experience as dynamic hooker Danny Davies led the way with three of their eight tries.

Max Boswell rounded off another powerful performance up front with a try and others came from Alfie Brown, Toby Pratt and Morgan Heath.

Bowyn Clarke also featured on the try sheet as well as landing four conversions, with Kodi Bratcher adding the other two-pointer in a performance that would have pleased coach Phil Greenwood.

Seasiders score eight tries to stay in second spot


Tenby United 46 - Narberth 0


Tenby United ran in eight tries to claim a comfortable win over a Narberth side which never gave up trying but were outgunned up front and faced backs ready to run their possession at every opportunity.

The Reynolds brothers featured as Lennon raced through for a brace as well as landing three conversion and Tyler made it three tries for the family as he rounded off a good handling move.

Other tries came from Dan Howells, Lewis Fargin, Lewis Jones (2) and Kyle Rossiter as The Young Seasiders put their greater experience to good effect and remain in second place as their reward.

Narberth Youth had good performances from inside centre George James and outside half Ollie Hough, with Theo Tilley given the man of the match award for them in only his second game of rugby where he started out on the wing and switched to full back later on.

Seagulls win a close encounter of the rugby kind


Fishguard & Goodwick 10 - Narberth 7

Fishguard & Goodwick coach Randall Williams breathed a sigh of relief as his team squeezed home against Narberth, whose coach Jason Jenkins is gradually building the overall strength of his squad.

The Young Otters scored a try from prop Harry Lloyd after good work by Ben Davies and Owen Holgate, converted by Ollie Hough.

But The Young Seagulls grabbed two tries by Jesse James and Will Robinson to claim their second success in three starts.

Scarlets maintain their winning start


Pembroke 19 - Haverfordwest 11

There was a close-fought contest at Crickmarren before Pembroke fought off a real challenge from Haverfordwest during a match where both talented young teams had chances to take victory but The Young Scarlets just outlasted the opposition.

Haverfordwest Youth had a very good try by centre Iestyn Doble after good handling by their backs - and although outside half Rio Phillips missed the conversion he found the target with two well-struck penalties as flanker Iolo Evans also caught the eye with his tackling and general work rate.

For The Young Scarlets there was a strong display by Max Boswell up front and tries from live-wire hooker Danny Davies, centre Kodi Bratcher and busy prop Billy Jones, whilst centre Bowyn Clark continued his good form with the boot as he landed two conversions.

Seasiders win well against The Seagulls


Fishguard 19 - Tenby United 29

A good crowd enjoyed some excellent running rugby before Tenby United ran out 29-19 winners as reward for their general team work and greater experience against a Young Seagulls team that was afterwards praised by co-coach Randall Williams for their hard work.

The try scorers for his team were hooker Will Robinson, No 8 Jesse James and scrum half Will Thomas, who played a key role as link man between forwards and backs.

Prop Owen Nicholson also played well whilst backs rowers Ifan Evans and Taine Williams joined James in forming an effective back row and also caught the eye with their work rate.

The Young Seasiders ran in five tries by Cemlyn Bolton, Iori Richards, Dan Howells, Tyler Reynolds and his brother Lennon, who also kicked two conversions in an entertaining performance that will have pleased coach Harry Bolton!

Scarlets win top of table clash


Tenby United 29 - Pembroke 40


This eagerly-anticipated top of the table clash fully lived up to expectations in front of a big crowd at Haywood Lane where Tenby United and Pembroke played some quality rugby where the lead changed hands several times before The Young Scarlets ended up as worthy winners.

Pembroke had two tries from centre Jack Nicholas as reward for his straight running, whilst hooker Danny Davies maintained his splendid run of form with another two tries.

Flanker Rhydian Eynon also added a try alongside winger Corey Mathias - and Bowyn Clarke completed an impressive tally for The Young Scarlets with five out of six conversions.

Scarlets’ coach Phil Greenwood said afterwards he was pleased with the result and praised the opposition for their part in such an entertaining tussle.
