10 September 2011 - Parc y Scarlets, Llanelli

Match Report

Bonus points galore

Another nine try Principality Premiership match was enjoyed in the Parc Y Scarlets sunshine. Llanelli appeared, surprisingly somewhat lethargic in their approach while Llandovery were good value for their efforts as they held Llanelli to 13 all at halftime.

Shaun Hopkins scored his third try in three games for the homesters and Jack Roberts scored a great individual try for the Drovers.

Kev George’s halftime talk seemed to have worked as Llanelli came out of the blocks in the second period scoring two good tries within seven minutes from Johnny Lewis and Rhys Jones both converted by Jordon Williams.

But whatever Llanelli threw at the Drovers they had the belief and skill to run it back and ended up touching down for another three tries from Rob Walters, Luke Kendall and Shaun Jones.

 Chris Keenan intercepted from 80 metres out for Llanelli and Aled Davies back from a long term injury also touched down..

But possibly on the day, where Llanelli had the edge was in the kicking department with 17 year old  Jordon Williams showing great maturity  in an immaculate kicking display  with 5 conversions and 3 penalties for a match winning 19 point haul.

For Llandovery Cerith Rees kicked one penalty before leaving the field and James Garland kicked 3 conversions and 3 penalties

Llanelli got their bonus point victory and Llandovery got two bonus points for scoring 4 tries and losing within a 7 point margin
