Trimsaran 3-22 Burry Port

The Blacks returned from their short trip over Pembrey Mountain with a hard earned bonus point win against an improving Trimsaran team. Trimasaran have had an impressive pre-season beating Ponyberem who play in the division above, and it was no surprise to find the early exchanges were evenly balanced. The Blacks tried to play expansive rugby from the start with the sun shining, however there were very heavy downpours that made the ball slippery and difficult to handle. There was high intensity in the first half but no points scored as both defences proved to be difficult to breach. Encouragingly for the Blacks, the set peice was going well especially at scrum and there were promising signs as the teams turned around at half time with the score nil-nil. It was Trimsaran who scored first through a well struck penalty, and Burry Port responded well when Second Row Rhys Gravell crashed over for a try after good possession. The Blacks started to dominate possession and built up the pressure and it was another close range effort from Rhys Gravell who crossed for his second in almost identical circumstances. Playing into a wind the Blacks did well to keep the territorial advantage, and Tight Head  Prop Declan Jordan came close only to be held up over the line. With the home defence stretched, and after good interplay saw an overlap out wide, it was speedy winger Luke Marshal who raced over to score in the corner for the third try. With time running out, Burry Port threw everything at Trimsaran and got their important fourth try after number 8 Dylan Evans ran a neat diagonal line and set up scrum half Ben Williams who sliced through to touch down under the posts, Williams converted to make the final score 3-22. Player Coach Gareth Gravell was happy with the result and said “ not many teams will come away from Trimsaran with a bouns point victory".
