Seagulls show no signs of slowing

Neyland 7
Fishguard 72

fishguard rfcIT WAS eight from eight for the Seagulls, as they maintained their 100% record by steamrolling over the Pembrokeshire All Blacks, who looked a little off beat after the Christmas break. Skipper Simon James got the Seagulls off to a perfect start as he shrugged off a couple tackles to touch down, before handling errors plagued the next 20 minutes as Neyland looked to rattle Fishguard at the breakdown.

Good work from open side Chris Shousha, and second row Rhys Lewis allowed the Seagulls forwards to get the upper hand, and it wasn’t long until Gavin Walsh and Ryan ‘Melv’ McVeigh crashed over the line, before fly half James Griffiths broke away for a try of his own. After the break, Griffiths scored his second try, as did Gavin Walsh as Fishguard showed why they are undefeated, as they turned the screw.

Mark George crossed the whitewash for Fishguard, before Neyland capitalised from some poor refereeing and a knock on to score a try, as Delme Bateman jogged over the try line, as all 29 other players looked on to the ref. The try was awarded and Mark Riley added the extras. The game however was sealed as replacement Mike Jenkins touched down for two tries and full back Ed Bendall added one of his own, sealing a Fishguard victory
