Close: Llangwm battled well but were held up by Tregaron

TREGARON picked up their first win of the season as they beat a spirited Llangwm side by 29 points to 14 at Pill Parks on Saturday (Sept 24).

Llangwm were dealt an early blow when one of their players was given a yellow card and, five minutes later, Tregaron took the lead.

They worked the ball from right to left and Aled Jones went over in the corner before Huw Bonner brilliantly sent the conversion through the posts, despite the strong winds.

Llangwm looked to respond but after some concerted pressure, they gave the ball away following a knock-on.

Tregaron were also guilty of giving the ball away in key positions as possession continually swapped hands in the opening 20 minutes.

Some more pressure from Tregaron saw Llangwm penalised and after being marched forward by the referee, Bonner opted for a kick at goal which was successful for a 10-0 lead.

This time, Llangwm were able to respond and after being moved forward, they opted for a line out which eventually saw Gareth Thomas go over the line.

Kieran Walkden then added the extra two points to bring the Wasps right back into the game.

Towards the end of the first half, Llangwm came close again but Tregaron held out to keep their three point lead when the whistle went.

Llangwm would have been confident of a good second half but, just two minutes in, Tregaron scored their second try of the match as Martin Lloyd intercepted the ball before running on to touch down under the posts and Bonner had an easy conversion.

Ten minutes into the second half, Tregaron scored their third try in comical circumstances. Llangwm played the ball across their try area but a loose pass saw Delwyn Harries capitalise to touch the ball down.

Bonner then added the extra two points for a 7-24 scoreline in their favour.

On the hour mark, Tregaron opted for a scrum and, from that, Matthew Rose touched down in the corner for their fourth try.

This time Bonner’s conversion attempt was wide and the score stayed at 7-29, with Llangwm staring at the prospect of a heavy defeat.

Llangwm, however, didn’t give up and were rewarded when Tom Meehan crossed over the line and Steve Picton added the extra two points.

It was then that the rain intervened making play difficult for both sides and they were guilty of dropping the wet ball on a number of occasions.

Llangwm tried hard in the closing stages for a third try which would have seen them earn a losing bonus point, but they were held up just in front of the line.

The final whistle signalled the end and Llangwm were left to wonder what could have been had they taken some of their chances.

Signed Wales shirts gifted to RNLI go up for auction



FOLLOWING a winning start to the Six Nations Tournament, the Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) have scored a winning try for the RNLI, gifting six signed rugby shirts to help save lives at sea.

Each rugby shirt has been signed by the full WRU squad and are accompanied by a certificate of authentication – a winning prize for any Welsh rugby fan.

To avoid a ruck for the WRU shirts the charity has placed all six signed shirts on an online auction, ensuring a fair game for all who wish to win the golden prize. The auction will be live until Wednesday, March 31, which allows plenty of time for supporters to bid for the team in red.

Each signed shirt includes Wales Captain, Mumbles RNLI supporter and the most capped international player of all time Alun Wyn Jones; as well as Louis Rees-Zammit, the Man of the Match in the nail-biting Scotland v Wales game.

Nick Evans, RNLI Fundraising and Partnership Lead said: ‘On behalf of the charity I would like to say a big thank you to the Welsh Rugby Union for donating these fantastic prizes to the RNLI. RNLI volunteers are on call 24-7 and are often called away from important events such as family celebrations – or international rugby tournaments – to respond to the pager if someone is in trouble at sea.

‘Like all charities, 2020 was a challenging year for the RNLI when all traditional fundraising had to stop – all our shops were closed, there were no collections and all events had to be cancelled. This is why we at the RNLI are so grateful to all the team at WRU for their ongoing support. The auction is now live and we would like to encourage all Wales rugby supporters to throw the RNLI a lifeline and place their bid for the winning prize.’

Five subs to be allowed for JD Cymru Premier clubs



THE FAW’s National Leagues Board has confirmed that JD Cymru Premier clubs will be permitted to make five substitutions in matches, in accordance with the Laws of the Game, until the end of the 2020-21 top-flight season.

FIFA extended the use of the rule, which was first introduced following the COVID-19 outbreak, citing “player welfare” as part of the reason for the temporary amendment to Law 3 of the Laws of the Game.

FIFA stated that “Some competitions which resumed in 2020 may have a shorter-than-usual recovery/preparation period before the start of their next season.”

“For many competitions, the 2020/21 season will involve matches being played in a condensed period due to a delayed start and the inability to end later than usual because of major international tournaments.”

With the JD Cymru Premier set to restart on March 2, the National Leagues Board has approved the use of the rule in the JD Cymru Premier until the end of the current campaign.
