St Davids 7 - Llangwm 19

Llangwm ended their long wait for a league win as they deservedly came away from St Davids with victory after fighting back from being 7-0 down early on.

 It was The Saints who struck first after 15 minutes from a five metre scrum, as the home pack shunted towards the line and after The Wasps infringed, a penalty try was awarded that full back John Miles converted.

 But the visitors responded, as full back Paul Jonkers carried well into the St Davids 22, creating an overlap from which centre Steve Picton dived over in the corner.

 Young outside half Kieron Walkden was wide with the conversion, but impressed in keeping The Wasps on the front foot despite them trailing 7-5 at the break.

 The Saints then failed to make a heavy spell of pressure count at the start of the second half, and were made to pay as a break from Llangwm winger Craig Grice led to a try for flanker Ian Griffiths, that Picton converted with Walkden off the field injured.

 Moments later Llangwm No 8 Jamie Lewis, one of his side’s best performers on the day, rounded off an attack which saw the ball go through several pairs of hands and Picton again added the extras.

The home side, for whom No 8 Gethin Bateman stood out, did press hard for a bonus point score, but The Wasps held firm and were able to celebrate a first Division Three West A victory in 530 days, covering 28 matches.
