Young Otters seal win and draw in double-header

THERE was some excellent rugby on show on Sunday morning (Mar 12) as Narberth Under 11s played games against Crymych and Dunvant.

Narberth initially faced Crymych in the preliminary round for the Plate competition and that was followed by a game against touring team Dunvant.

The Otters started with two tries and conversions against Crymych, who fought back to gain a try and conversion. A focused team in the second half scored three more tries, two converted giving Narberth a strong 33-7 win to go on to the semi-finals. Tries were scored by Iori, Tomos, Jacob, Will and Evan. Conversions were scored by Oliver.

The team then faced the fresh Dunvant team who initially dominated. They took a lead with three tries and converted. The Otters, tired from the previous match and took a few bumps and bruises on the way but managed to score two tries and converted both.

Dunvant fought hard to score a further two tries, both of which were converted.

The young Otters dug deep to pull off three more tries and conversions resulting in a successful 35-35 draw. Tries 4 Jacob scored four tries and four conversions Iwan grabbed the other try with Will adding one conversion.
