Match Report

Aberavon 23 :: Llanelli 26

Well we're back at the Millenium Stadium !!!! After a thrilling encounter yesterday at the Liberty Stadium we came from behind to secure our place on May 9th where we will face NEATH RFC - that should be some match.

After going ahead early on with a try by centre Nick Reynolds and a penalty by Luke we let Aberavon come back into the match. Indeed winger Richard Carter for Aberavon took the man of the match with a hat trick of tries, which at one stage looked to good enough to take the Wizards through. But our tenacity and spirit shone through and the eleven point deficit entering the final quarter was overhauled with two further tries from Mathew Brayley and Dan Godfrey. Luke Richards added a penalty and conversion to complete the scoring and secure our place in Cardiff. Many thanks to all who turned out to support the boys - look forward to seeing you in the Final.
