Waunarlwydd v Kenfig Hill | 7th April 2018

As far as fields go Roseland road is not a bad pitch, but after Fridays rain the pitch would have been more likely to host Olympic diving than a rugby match. This was before Alan Titchmarsh and the ground force team (Gary Howells and willing helpers) cleared the standing water from the pitch to make sure the game went ahead. Moving water was one thing, but the pitch was very heavy making for difficult conditions. 
 
Waun made a good start showing intent to pass the ball wide, with Leighton lamb and Lee Evans finding space before Dan Moyle resurrected what seemed a dead move, feeding Alan Pope to score in the corner. Kenfig replied quickly with a penalty and a try of there own, a superbly judged kick from the Kenfig outside half into the arms of the winger, who didn't have to break stride to score an excellent try. A scrappy patch of play ensued and it wasn't until the the dying minutes of the half that Steff Jones, belly flopped over the line from a well worked line out to make the score;

Early in the second half Waun applied pressure on Kenfig. Rhys Cherry charging down a kick deep inside Kenfigs 22, Nick Jones doing his best Tom Daley impression to dive onto the ball which just rolled out of play. Cherry (who was being scouted by biffa, due to the amount of time he has spent in the bin recently) played well and scored from a driving line out from 5yds out to give Waun control of the game. The bonus point came with another 2 tries, after good work from Sam Pridgeon and Alan Pope for Dan Moyle to go over first and Andrew Lloyd to go over at the end of a bruising encounter. 
 
FT Waunarlwydd 29 - 10 Kenfig
 
2 players played well out of position for Waun with Gretchy on at outside half looking very assured, and Lee Evans who's attributes are surely suited to the full back role. Special mention this week must go to Kenfig Hill, who had to go passive due to no front row players meaning they were not allowed to use subs, added to this a player went down injured in the first 10 minutes. Those 14 Kenfig players were a credit to their club and can hold their heads high with a brave and gutsy performance. Man of the match went to Kenfig outside half, who kicked superbly giving Kenfig a fighting chance and making the game very difficult for Waunarlwydd in very unfortunate circumstances.
