LLANDOVERY closed the gap to Indigo Premiership leaders Cardiff on Thursday (Mar 2) as they beat them 37-20 at Church Bank.

It was Cardiff who took the lead early thanks to a penalty from Dan Fish but the Drovers hit back with a try from Rhodri Jones which was converted by Jack Maynard.

Fish then added another penalty but the home side responded again with another try.

Osian Davies touched the ball down and Maynard again added the extras to take the score to 14-6.

Ioan Hughes then slotted a drop goal through before the Drovers went over for their try of the half. Aaron Warren was next to go over and Maynard again added the extras.

Maynard then added a penalty shortly before the break to make it 27-6. It gave the Blue and Blacks a mountain to climb in the second half.

A Llandovery yellow card gave Cardiff the chance to get themselves back in the game and they scored their first try through Alun Rees and Fish added the extras.

There was then a yellow card for Cardiff’s Aaron Pinches as their hopes of getting back into the game were dented.

They took a further blow when Llandovery scored their fourth try of the game with Harri Doel touching down. Maynard added the extras to take the score to 34-13.

The Drovers added another penalty but it was Cardiff who finished strongly following another yellow card to a Llandovery player.
