Llanelli opened the season with several debutants at Glyneath and tries from wings Mike Davies and Lewis Thomas (2) is all they could muster against their Division 1 opponents who were celebrating 125 years of rugby at Glyneath.
Glyneath played the conditions far more effectively with their pick and go tactics culminating in a last minute try which they also converted. Glyneath's earlier try came a close range try from a five metre line out.
For Llanelli it was good run out after pre-season conditioning who will want to see a far tighter and disciplined performance against Narberth next Tuesday evening.
Glyneath 12 - Llanelli 15
