CARDIFF maintained their 100% record in the Indigo Premiership with a hard-earned win over Llandovery on Saturday (Oct 29).
The game between the sides sitting second and third in the table did not disappoint and it was the Drovers who took the lead early on courtesy of a try from Rhodri Wall.
Cardiff hit back with a penalty from Dan Fish and they then took the lead with a try from Dewi Cross which was converted by Fish.
The Drovers pushed for another score and their pressure eventually led to them being awarded a penalty try and a yellow card for a Cardiff player.
That gave the visitors a 10-12 lead at the break but it was still all to play for in the second half.
Cardiff edged themselves in front with a second try from Cross which went unconverted.
Llandovery hit back though and a try from Stuart Worrall put them back ahead and the conversion made the score 15-19.
It was Cardiff’s turn to respond and this time it was Alun Rees who touched down for the home side and Fish then added the extras.
Joe Goodchild then scored Cardiff’s bonus point try and the conversion from Fish made it 29-19.
With time running out Ricky Guest touched down for the Drovers and the conversion brought the score to 29-26.
Despite their efforts they were unable to find a winning score and had to settle for a losing bonus point.
Llandovery will look to bounce back in their next game on Thursday, November 10, which sees them travel to Llanelli.
