HAVERFORDWEST moved up to second place in League 3 West A on Saturday (Feb 16), as they beat Neyland with a late drop goal.
It was a tight game with both sides battling well but it was the Blues who went ahead early on as Craig Barnett scored a penalty.
Barnett then scored another soon after to put the visitors into a 0-6 lead and it remained that way until the half time whistle.
Early in the second half Neyland were back in it as they scored a penalty to make the score 3-6.
Mark Riley then put Neyland ahead as he was credited with a pushover try but the conversion was missed and the All Blacks led by two points.
Haverfordwest pushed on looking for a winning score and when a try wasn’t forthcoming the ball was sent back to Mikey Jones who kept calm to send a drop goal through the posts.
That put the Blues one point ahead at 8-9 and there was little time for the home side to respond.
The All Blacks do pick up the consolation of a losing bonus point but that will not do much to lift their spirits after they were dropped to fourth in the table following other results.
The Blues now sit second with Aberaeron breathing down their necks having played three games less.
There is no game on Saturday (Feb 23), as Wales take on England at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff.
The sides return to action on Saturday, March 2, when Haverfordwest host Llanybydder and Neyland host St Davids.
