Match Report

Llanelli RFC v Swansea

Llanelli RFC18 -31 Swansea RFC

Llanelli lost the local derby by 4 tries to 3 and know only to well that will play alot worse and win.

No 8 Steffan Jones sealed things for the Whites with a copybook try from a good 'Jacks ' scrum but their other three tries were far less engineered. Under-rated replacement Liam Davies scored from  60 metres with Llanelli in ascendancy, while James Dixon won his 'Jim will Fix it 'award for his 2 tries and conversions. 

Llanelli's tries came from Aaron Shingler, Nick Reynolds and a fine long distance try and penalty kick from Dale Ford.

Llanelli and referee Leighton Hodges' inefficiency at the break down disappointed, but lets hope lessons are learnt by all concerned and in near future the law makers in rugby start adapting the laws to stop the negativity that exists with rugby presently.
