Match Report

Bonus Point win against Bedwas

In difficult weather conditions (swirling wind, rain, sleet and snow) Llanelli gained an excellent bonus point victory against Bedwas RFC at Parc V Scarlets. Bedwas who were making their first visit to the Stadium were defending from the off and after a good run an off load from No 8 Ben Morgan,centre Steve Martin's pace and change of angle did the rest as he touched down with Steve Shingler converting after just 3 minutes.

Bedwas fly half Adam Greendale cut the lead after 10 minutes with a simple penalty.

Despite both sides making elementary mistakes they were trying to entertain the sparse crowd and Llanelli did manage to keep the score board ticking with a couple more penalties from Shingler before half time to give them a 13-3 lead.

Permit prop Matthew Evans and his replacement Shaun Hopkins both scored carbon copy tries from 'driving mauls', which showed good game management variation and the Shingler brothers completed the evening's scoring, with Aaron intercepting from 50 metres and again outstripping the defence which Steve converted.

Llanelli 30-3 Bedwas
