Late try gives Narberth seconds victory over Pembroke

A LATE try gave Narberth seconds victory over Pembroke seconds in the Scarlets Region West division on Saturday (Apr 2).

Going into the game Narberth were unbeaten in the league but Pembroke looked to make it difficult for their opponents.

It took Narberth 25 minutes to break through a strong Pembroke defence but it was a lovely move from their own 22 which ended in Ryan Scourfield going over for the first try, converted by centre Lewis Hough.

Pembroke hit back with a try from Aran Williams that went unconverted.

Ianto Davies, on permit from Crymych, then went over to increase Narberth’s lead.

Pembroke hit back again with Jordan Cornick going over and Jarrod Sherratt added the conversion bringing the score to 12-12.

Rain came down in the second half and conditions were not great but both teams tried to play rugby but the slippery surface led to a number of errors.

Ifan Rees went over for what would prove to be the winning unconverted try with five minutes to go to make it 12-17.

Pembroke pushed hard until the final whistle and thought they had scored but the referee disallowed it as he was unable to see the ball.

Pembroke seconds’ next game sees them take on Llangwm in the second game of the Palmer Cup on April 16 at Pembroke RFC.

They are also due to play St Davids in the Willington Slate Trophy a week later with a kick off time to be arranged.
