Llanelli RFC v Pontypool RFCv@Pontypool Park 13/09/08
Llanelli came away from the picturesque Pontypool Park with all 5 Principality Premiership points that were up for grabs.
Flying wing Mike Davies had a great day touching down for a hat rick of tries in the 1st, 21st and 51st minutes, which were all engineered team efforts conjured from exciting counter attacking rugby from deep in their own territory. Opposite wing Matthew Jacobs also got on the try scoring list with his first try of the campaign, courtesy of some superb Llanelli scrummaging. Fast improving lock Aaron Shingler and Prop Ian Jones also touched down in a very pleasing overall performance which delighted the coaching team of Paul Fisher and Scarlet Vernon Cooper. Next up are the inform Wizards who come to Stradey next Saturday, also unbeaten to date!
