It was the Home side who got off to the better start keeping the ball for long periods and putting the Burry {Port tryline under some pressure but just couldnt get over the white wash. Burry Port looked dangerous when in possession and with strong running centre Knox opening the scoring with a fine run Burry Port got into their game and took control of the first half.

Knox soon crossed for his second and was quickly followed by another try this time by Flanker Rich Parker all converted by Ceiron Thomas to make the score 21-10 at half time.

The Blacks had more oppurtunities to increase the lead but a combonation of good defence and a couple of mistakes at the last moment denied the away team.
