Ammanford 24   Brynamman 29

A warm welcome greeted Brynamman on their visit to the Rec. On a glorious day both teams entered into the spirit of the day and played plenty of open running rugby. Unfortunately for the home side the visitors were that little bit better and stole the day.

Ammanford started positive and were soon 6 -0 up thanks to a couple of Steff Roberts penalties. Ammanford stayed positive but from a loose chip ahead inside the visiting 22 the ball was picked up and wing Liam Cox went on a scintillating run down the wing. The home team scurried back but when the ball was moved wide there was a four man overlap for Brynamman to get the first try of the game. Full back Rhys Williams added the extras to put the visitors ahead. Williams then slotted a penalty to extend the lead.

The running counter attacking game saw in the fore from both sides and from a passage of play where the ball was alive for long periods finished with Bryn centre Johnny Bevan power over for a try converted by Williams. Ammanford did make a positive finish to the half winning a penalty and the half finished with the visitors leading 9-17.

An attacking scrum at the start of the 2nd half saw the home team move the ball to the right and a darting run from outside half Ryan Williams saw the 10 dart over. Roberts added the conversion. This was Ammanford’s period and were soon back ahead through a Roberts penalty and this was added to when another phase of running rugby ended when the ball found centre Carwyn Morris out on the wing. A strong run down the touchline saw him squeeze over in the corner and extend the home lead to 24-17.

Brynamman showed their resolve and two penalties from Williams brought it back to a one point game. With Ammanford on the attack the referee took umbridge on Ammanford comments and the home side having upset the referee soon saw themselves in their own half and giving Williams the chance to take the lead, which he calmly did. Bryn stayed positive and defending hard Ammanford again upset the referee, this time second row Shaun Williams saw yellow and Williams extended the lead.

Ammanford tried hard over the last few minutes to level the score and when the visiting hooker received a red card hopes were high. However, the visitors defended for their lives hanging on to win 24-29.

Next week the league takes a rest and Ammanford travel to Bridgend Sports in the WRU Plate.
