Division Three West A: St Davids 0-3 Neyland 

It wasn't a game that will be released on DVD anytime soon.

But after 60 minutes which probably defined the phrase 'cancelled each other out' - a penalty from Neyland No 10 Toby Hayman broke the deadlock at St Davids and the All Blacks duly held on.

In truth, it was a poor spectacle that was plagued in adverse conditions, but for Neyland it was at least a third league win of the season while St Davids registered a first bonus point of their league campaign. Although they were left ruing not getting more.

Scoreless at the break:

The opening stages were scrappy as the rain teemed down, although there was no shortage of physicality with the home pack losing both Ray Owen and Tommy Reynolds to arm injuries.

It was Neyland who put the early pressure on as centre Kyle Hamer, on permit from Narberth, twice burst into the 22 to set up attacks - but they opted to boot a kickable penalty to the corner and The Saints held out.

The hosts slowly worked their way into it though and got on top in the scrum - and centre Louis Murphy, helping out from Llangwm, was just wide with a 30 metre penalty.

The Saints then opted to go to the corner with two other penalty chances, but this time it was Neyland's turn to hold out.

Stalemate continues:

The early stages of the second half were also stagnated and Neyland went down to 14 men when replacement Mark 'Russell' James was sin binned.

And then both sides went close, firstly Neyland when Henry McBeth's run down the left wing was halted by Rhys Morgan's tackle, before veteran second row Chris Busby was held up inches short.

And then the All Blacks again ran a close range penalty but after the ball went to ground, Fraser Watson intercepted and broke upfield before linking with Morgan - but the All Blacks scrambled back.

Hayman's precious points:

The deadlock was finally broken on the hour mark when the Saints failed to clear their lines, and a burst from No 8 Iestyn Evans won his side a penalty - presenting Hayman with a chance from 20 metres.

This time, he took the points and you sensed then it might be the match winning score.

And so it proved, but only after the Saints twice opted to go for goal from long range penalties - with Morgan and then Murphy coming up short.

Neyland also survived having hooker Craig Power sin binned for a late tackle and losing James to injury, and then right at the death Yale Grice broke upfield for St Davids and chipped ahead, but the scramble that ensued finished with a knock on and referee Tom Carew promptly blew the final whistle.

Steve Evans (Neyland assistant coach): "I won't lie that was beyond poor. We have won but St Davids can consider themselves very unlucky."

Gethin Bateman (St Davids player coach): "It was heartbreak again for us. We were in the hunt throughout game but couldn’t finish off our chances.

"However, the boys stuck to the task and we have to take the positives and move on."
