TENBY’s early season promise has faded into end of season disappointment and they finished off their home campaign with a display of both brilliance and naivety which is perhaps a fitting tribute to their campaign.
The Heywood Lane outfit will rue refereeing decisions which saw tries by Luke Edmunds and Damien Miller refused which left the home supporters more than a little bemused as to why.
The Seasiders couldn’t have got off to a worse start as scrum half Johnny Evans and big lock Jack Baker ran in early tries, with Rhidian Morris converting one and notching a penalty to give the visitors a 15-0 lead.
With little to play for a lesser side than Tenby may have succumbed at this point, but determined to put in a display their supporters could be proud of, they came back to lead 17-15 at half time thanks to tries by impressive young speedster Jordan Asparassa, Toby Smith and a first of the season for winger Jack Guerreiro.
Ammanford took the lead back briefly in the second period with a third Morris penalty before Damien Miller scored one of the best tries ever seen at Heywood Lane which had seemingly secured a bonus point victory.
As it was late indiscipline gave Morris two opportunites to knock over penalties from distance which he gratefully accepted and the Seasiders had to settle for just two points when they had seemed certain to claim five.
