LLANGWM did the double over Pembroke Dock Quins on Saturday (Mar 23), as they came from behind in the second half to earn a 20-8 win.
The Wasps beat the Quins earlier in the season, but it was a much improved Quins side that arrived at Pill Parks.
Llangwm’s points in the first half came from the boot of Luke Hayman who had a good game at scrum half. Although the Quins had better possession for the latter part of the half and got a well deserved try through full back Rhys Bradney who was the visitors best player on the day.
At the oranges the Quins led 8-6. However the second half was a different story and Llangwm’s pack, led by No8 Josh Hicks and skipper Gethin Thomas, took it to the visitors.
Hicks carried well and made ground regularly and he was supported by Lewis Wood who was introduced at the break for Llangwm. Reynolds and James tackled well in the second row and Llangwm took control with Hayman dictating things at 9.
It was Hicks and Hayman, who combined for the home team’s first try, from the base of the scrum a good inside pass from Hayman, set Hicks up to power over the line for the try, which Hayman converted.
The onslaught continued with Hicks, Wood and Gethin Thomas, taking the Quins on up front.
Camped in the Quins’ 22, Hayman again found Hicks and he ploughed his way through several tackles, and as he was eventually tackled offloaded to centre Ben Goodridge who finished well, to put the game to bed.
It was a good team performance from the Wasps and an improved Quins team made for a good clean game with no cards.
On Saturday (Mar 30), Llangwm travel to Milford Haven while the Quins host Tregaron.
