Division Three West A: St Davids 10-47 Laugharne

Laugharne picked up their expected bonus point win in St Davids but had to wait until the second half to seal matters after the home side fought hard in the first 40 minutes.

The Cocklemen, very much in contention for the title this season, started well as Carwyn Jones touched down and then winger Gareth Spiers crossed for a try that Tom Jameson converted.

Centre Jameson then got his own try as Laugharne continued to find joy out wide and added the extras again to make it 19-0.

But St Davids rallied, and after a series of forward drives scrum half Zak Morgan pounced from close range to score.

And soon after that No 10 Stephen Smith pulled it back to 19-10 when he followed up his own clever chip ahead to touch down.

In the second half though the visitors regained control and Jack Flanagan grabbed the bonus point try before Tom Thomas also went over – Jameson converting both to open up a 33-7 lead.

Hooker Tom Waters was next to score before Thomas rounded off matters with his second try, and again Jameson was twice on target with the extras to complete a 17 point haul.

The Cocklemen will now turn their focus to a big WRU Bowl Round 3 game on Wednesday night – where they will have key players Carl Smith, Mikey Williams, and Owain Thomas all returning.

For St Davids, there were positives as both prop Jason Davies and centre Dylan Walsh played well on permit while there were debuts for Jack Crimlis and Jamie Go, lings, and player coach Gethin Bateman was pleased to how his side responded in the first half.

“From 19-0 down we dug in, attacked and got rewards,” he said.

“So there were positives but we need to find a way of turning positives into results.”
