Match Report

Cardiff defeat

Llanelli travelled to Cardiff in the second round of Principality Premiership matches and were led by Adam Powell who was making his 250th game for the club.

Throughout the match both sides were guilty of many unforced errors and along with conceding numerous penalties it was not going to be a classic.

However as usual there was always going to be tries scored between both teams who like to play open rugby.

George Watkins opened the scoring on 25 minutes for the home team with a 50-metre sprint to the try line. Three minutes later a beautiful Steffan Hughes pass put full back Steffan Evans in space near halfway and he sidestepped the full back for a great try under the posts. Frazier Climo converted and then exchanged a penalty with Dean Gunter to give Llanelli a slender 2-point half time lead.

With a player in the bin Cardiff kicked off the second period and yet another unforced error gifted scrum half Tom Slater the ball and he ran in from 40 metres with Gunter adding the extras.

In the 49th minute a debatable penalty try was awarded to Cardiff, which Gunter converted and with six minutes remaining Watkins scored his second try to seal the bonus point victory.

Llanelli finished the game with a top try from Frazier Climo knowing they need to put a lot more hard graft into training this week before they visit Carmarthen next Saturday.
