NEYLAND set up an exciting top of the table clash with Milford Haven on Saturday (Feb 2), as they beat rivals Llangwm 39-7 last weekend.
In wet and windy conditions the home team came through in what was a hard fought game against the Wasps.
At the interval it was 10-0 with the wind playing its part. It was the visitors who scored first after the oranges with Josh Hicks catching a clearance kick from Neyland’s 22, powering through several tackles to score under the posts.
It was the least the visitors deserved after some brilliant defensive work by James Lewis at 12 and James Lewis at 6 also, as well as from Daniel Hughes up front.
The home side however had quality that was always going to show through with Delme Bateman and Henry MacBeth finishing off backs moves well. At 10 George Evans controlled things and managed to bag himself a try also.
Neyland were the better team on the day, but it was a much improved performance from the wasps and they will have left holding their heads high.
Money was also raised in the club after the game for Llangwm legend Richard Scriven’s granddaughter’s charity.
On Saturday (Feb 2), Llangwm will look to get back to winning ways as they welcome Llanybydder to Pill Parks.
The win moves Neyland to within four points of Milford who are yet to lose a game so far this season.
