The Panthers were away to Morriston in league action. The match was a really well contested affair, with the Panthers forging a lead after excellent work from both forwards and backs combining well. Morriston put up stern defence and scored a good try of their own.
Unfortunately, the game was brought to an early finish after a very serious injury to a home player; the referee decided to end the game and the result was awarded to the Panthers.
The Youth entertained a young Llangwm squad last Friday evening in front of a large crowd. The weather had rendered the pitch very soft and wet, but both teams served up a very entertaining game.
Pembroke’s older, more experienced squad dominated possession, with the forwards and backs combining very well to score eight unanswered tries; Bowyn Clark expertly converted seven of these from all sides and angles to give his side a 54-0 win, when the game was stopped (under WRU rules) after thirty minutes.
The Junior age groups were in action over the weekend, with mixed fortunes, but it was inspiring to see all age groups in action on a busy Sunday; well done to all of the players voted player of their matches.
