The game was a wonderfully exciting affair with both sides playing some clever, expansive rugby in wet, muddy conditions. The score seesawed throughout, but eventually the persistence and skilful play from the home side brought them a well-deserved win by 54-21, in front of a large, appreciative crowd.
On Saturday the club hosted two junior Enniscorthy (Eire) squads, the U13s and U14s. The matches were played one after the other on the main pitch, again in front of a large, vociferous crowd, who were treated to some excellent rugby from all sides. The local lads established early leads in both matches, but once the visitors got the travelling out of their legs, they began to show their prowess and in both matches they dominated most of the play throughout the second halves, scoring some excellent tries. Eventually both Irish age groups won their respective matches, whilst all the youngsters were clapped off by very appreciative crowds of supporters. After the matches the hosts put on a BBQ and hospitality for the players and their travelling support, before settling down to watch the Six Nations games in the clubhouse. Later that afternoon there were jubilant scenes in the function room as Ireland claimed a fully deserved Grand Slam.
The Youth had played Llangwm away on Friday night in another epic battle, which ended with a worthy win for the home side. All at the club wish the Llangwm squad every success when they take on Bryncoch at Cefneithin’s ground this Saturday in the semi-final of the WRU Youth National Bowl competition; where a win sees them emulate Pembroke Youth from 2018 and go to the Millennium Stadium to compete for a National Title.
