Big Joel Galley made a welcome return to Parc Y Scarlets after being out for 2 years with a horrendous knee injury in this Principality Premiership against Pontypool.
Llanelli also handed Parc Y Scarlets debuts to Diggy Bird (Tata Steel)Joe Heatley (Tondu),Thomas Ball(Academy),Tomos Wilson (Llanybydder)Dylan Morgan (Lampeter)and Gareth Drewson (Cwmllynfell)
A fine team performance in the first half saw Llanelli score two tries from Big Joel Galley and his impressive scrum half team-mate Joe Heatley both converted by sure-foot Diggy Bird who also kicked a 30th minute penalty for a commanding 17-0 halftime lead.
As the conditions got colder and the underfoot conditions got more difficult more unforced errors crept into what was a good quality game. Pontypool skipper Craig Atwell touched down for a deserved try converted by full back Geraint o' Driscoll in the 75th minute which was cancelled out by Llanelli's Mr Reliable Justin James who touched down 6 minutes later and Diggy closed the game with another excellent conversion kick and a 100% kicking return.
