Good Home Win

Aberystwyth RFC Youth XV 49 – v – 14 Haverfordwest RFC Youth XV

Aber Youth played host to Haverfordwest in the return fixture having lost by two points in the away match earlier in the season. The hosts set out their intentions from the start with some determined running and aggressive tackling.

Dafydd Hywel went over in the corner early on followed by strong running  by centre Leo Davies for Aber’s second try. The hosts continued to dominate and it was entirely with the run of play that winger Efan Davies then got in on the act with a try of his own. The forwards too were playing well together and Gerwyn Jones got the front row on the scoresheet with his first try.

An error by the home side then allowed the visitors to score their first try under the posts. This was soon cancelled out by Aber’s fifth try and Efan Davies’ second. Haverfordwest, to their credit, then came back strongly and hit a ten minute purple patch in which they took the game to their opponents and scored their second converted try.

After the break Aber resumed their determined style of play and saw Gerwyn Jones cross for his second try. Scrum half Ieuan Breese was next to score as the game continued with some clever interplay for Gerwyn Jones, in true front row style, running a fantastic angle to score his third try, converted by Euros Lloyd.

The game ended with the unstoppable scoring machine, Gerwyn Jones charging up the field to score his fourth try of the game again converted by Lloyd to close a convincing, but far from polished, performance.

Narberth Youth, with 44 points from 11 games, top the Scarlets under 18 league, followed by Aber Youth with 41 points from 10 games and Crymych with 40 Points from 9 games. These three clubs dominate the league and are unlikely to be challenged. But the competition between them is close and the final positions are far from clear. Aber are due to play bottom club Pembroke at home and Crymych are due to play Narberth at home, and sixth place Whitland away. Aber should win their last match convincingly and so will have to rely on Narberth and Crymych to settle the final top three league places.
