LLANTWIT MAJOR 9pts v CEFN COED 22pts

 

 

The Wolves  travelled to LLANTWIT MAJOR who were currently lying in second position in the league. Finding that there was a kit mix up CEFN needed to borrow the home sides change kit of white. The game commenced at a fast pace with Llantwit making strong charges up the middle of the field. It was credit to the determination and strong defensive qualities of the visitors that kept Llantwit from scoring. The first score came after Cefn were penalised at the ruck for handling after 15 mins. The game seesawed from end to end with the CEFN pack seeming to have the upper edge in the scrummage but were frequently penalised for what seemed trivial offences. However, after 20 minutes the scores were level when Luke Williams slotted a penalty. With the game played mainly in the middle of the field the home side finally took the lead 3 minutes before half-time with another penalty to make the score 6-3 at the break. Llantwit began the second half by putting pressure once again on the Cefn defence. In the 60th minute Cefn were penalised for attempting to stop the home scrum half advancing from a quick  tap penalty resulting in Ryan Harries being yellow carded. Taking the score to 9-3 the visiting supporters were wondering whether the long run of fine wins was to end. The league leaders were not be defeated and in the 65th minute finally took the lead through an Arran Davies try converted by Luke Williams.Superb counter attacking from full back Bleddyn Craze (making his first appearance since being badly injured in the 50th Anniversary game against the Mid District) together with use of centres Jack Thomas and Liam Elliott Cefn began to dominate the game. This stage of the game saw Cefn playing a great interlinking game with the back row dominating especially Ross Sullivan being on hand to make a number of charging runs down the field. A further two tries were added, the first by Nathan Jones who finished off a superb break with Luke Williams adding the conversion. The score line of 9-17 was now looking much better for the supporters. The second and final try was added in the 76th minute by centre Liam Elliott which went unconverted for the visitors to run out 9-22pts winners. This win takes the Wolves 11pts clear in the league from second place Penygraig although they have a game in hand. Credit must go to the whole team for this outstanding display. Crunching tackles by Gareth Williams led the way together with  some excellent lineout steals by Mathew Rolls. The overall display of the whole squad made for a good day out in the Vale of Glamorgan. Finally CEFN Coed would like to thank Llantwit Major for the use of their change kit. With the Six Nations game against Scotland next weekend CEFN are without a fixture until 4th March when they travel to Wattstown.
